like when Bob Lazar got those three pieces of ununpentium out (they recovered two). But no one wants to believe that

Thanks for the info You will certainly find this very very interesting then...
he Militarily Critical Technologies List (MCTL) is a detailed compendium of information on technologies which the Department of Defense assesses as critical to maintaining superior U.S. military capabilities. The MCTL contains definitions of specifications and thresholds that make each technology critical to the military. The majority of the MCTL technologies are dual use technologies, which means they can be used for both military and civilian applications. For example, new, rugged, high-power lasers have a specialized civilian application, but they are also adaptable to sensitive military applications.
A foreign intelligence collector may use alleged civilian use as a plausible cover for seeking information or materials that have military applications. Dual-use items that would make a significant contribution to the military potential of another country are on the Department of Commerce's Commodity Control List, and a license is required for their export. The acquisition of any of these technologies by a potential adversary would lead to the significant enhancement of the military-industrial capabilities of that country to the detriment of U.S. security interests.1
