Bob Lazar: The Man Behind Element 115

George Knapp
Investigative Reporter

How does this sound - a conversion kit that would allow your
car to run on clean, plentiful hydrogen? It's in the works in
New Mexico, and the name of the guy who is building it may ring
a bell. He's Bob Lazar, and 16 years ago he told the I-Team's
George Knapp about Area 51 and said scientists there were
studying UFOs. He dropped out of sight, but George caught up
with him.

As a teenager, Bob Lazar built a jet-powered bicycle, then a jet
Honda, then a jet dragster. These day's he's focused on a
different propulsion system. Bob Lazar, former government
scientist, said, "Every vehicle we have here is powered by

At his new home in rural New Mexico, Lazar has been working on a
conversion kit that will turn any car into a hydrogen hybrid.
His two vehicles have already been converted and can travel up
to 450 miles on hydrogen, then switch automatically back to
gasoline. Lazar wants to take it a step further.

Lazar said, "Every major car company is working on a hydrogen
system, but the only difference is, they want to sell you a new
hydrogen car and sell you hydrogen gas at hydrogen gas stations.
Basically, we're making a conversion kit you can use in your own
car and instead of buying hydrogen from someone else, you make

He makes hydrogen using water and a solar powered generator. But
again, with a Lazar twist. "It's the only particle accelerator
on the block, I guarantee ya."

The small lab behind his home has a 30-foot long particle
accelerator he built from scratch. He uses it to produce metal
hydrides, which absorb hydrogen gas like a sponge and make it
much safer to use as a fuel.

Lazar says, "You can do that with ordinary metal hydrides but we
found a way to manipulate the atomic structure to change things.
It's worked fantastically."

George Knapp teases, "It almost sounds like you're a real

Lazar replies, "That's what they tell me."

It's an inside joke based on the ridicule Lazar has faced ever
since he went public in 1989 with his claims that he worked on
flying saucers in the Nevada desert. The military refused to
answer any questions about Lazar or his claims, nor could we
verify much of anything about his life.

Lazar told us he previously worked at Los Alamos National Lab.
The lab repeatedly denied it, even after we found Lazar's name
in the lab phone book. His critics say that since he can't prove
he ever earned a college degree, he can't be a real scientist,
even if he can build jet engines, hydrogen systems and particle

Is there a way to prove any part of his story? Maybe. In 1989,
Lazar claimed the ET saucers he worked on could produce their
own gravity. This propulsion was made possible by a superheavy
substance Lazar called Element 115. What is the problem with
this story? Element 115 did not exist in 1989. Now, however, it

Scientists at the Lawrence Livermore Lab created a miniscule
amount of 115 last year. A profound development, but the
material decayed almost instantly. So where did the government
get 500 pounds of the stuff, which is what Lazar claimed long

Lazar says, "It has to come from some place where it's natural,
like from a super nova."

In other words, it comes from a solar system other than ours.
Lazar's critics say the fact that 115 as created in a lab is
unstable and fleeting proves Lazar is a liar. Lazar says the
first batch was only a starting point and that he will be proven
right in the long run.

"I'd like to see them continue to work and produce different
isotopes of 115 because they're gonna come up with a handful of
different varieties and they're gonna come up with a stable
isotope, and that's what we're interested," he countered.

By no means does he dwell on being proven right. He and his wife
have left the UFO crowd far behind and could care less, they
say. Lazar stands by his original story, but says, "I can't say
I would do it again. I would probably keep my mouth shut this

George Knapp inquired, "But you must get a twinge about the

Lazar said, "Oh sure. I mean, who wouldn't like to go back and
see what they're doing now? But on the other hand, I'd rather be

Earlier this year, British scientists say they demonstrated an
anti-gravity system that appears to be based on the theories
revealed years ago by Lazar. Some scientists say it's proof that
what Lazar said about Element 115 is true after all.

The I-Team will let you know how it comes out.
