The GEC-Marconi scientist deaths conspiracy theory states that between 1982 and 1990 twenty-five British-based GEC-Marconi scientists and engineers who worked on the Sting Ray torpedo project, and other United States Strategic Defense Initiative related projects (better known as Star Wars) died under mysterious circumstances. Police investigations found the deaths to be unconnected and lacking evidence of foul play.

The Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) was proposed by U.S. President Ronald Reagan on March 23, 1983, to use ground and space-based systems to protect the United States from attack by strategic nuclear ballistic missiles.
Brilliant Pebbles was a non-nuclear system of satellite-based interceptors designed to use high-velocity, watermelon-sized, teardrop-shaped projectiles made of tungsten as kinetic warheads

If there were suspicious deaths of "star wars" scientists I'd blame the KGB before aliens. Remember, stopping "Star Wars" was a central priority of the USSR.

It doesn't make sense to train these guys up and then assassinate them. I don't buy the "the scientists learned too much and had to be killed" thing, although there's certainly projects we've worked on where I wish the scientists HAD been killed.
I could imagine a few scenarios where TPTB would go to extreme measures to kill so many high end scientists that all worked for the same company and were all exposed to the same Way Above Top Secret / Classified project/s.
Suppose they were involved in reverse engineering Alien Tech and used that info to build and implement the Star Wars program. Perhaps they were systematically killed off for fear of them revealing that we weaponized space and could destroy any aircraft, missle, city, etc in a moments notice.
1. They worked on Top Secret Defense Programs
2. Fear of them divulging said info to the public
3. Possibility of a foreign country using them to replicate said technology
4. Bottim line they must destroy any avenue of said info or tech getting out into the world weather by word of mouth or by replication of the tech

Im guessing they didnt want to pay out the company life insurance..thats why they called it suicide..this is a great find!! I believe that dead people can come back and call attention to another human what happen to them..this may be an area for you to do further research..
What brought youre attention to this subject?
