Robert Scott Larar, better known to the UFO community as Bob Lazar, claims to have worked on an alien craft for the U.S. Government at Area 51. Lazar's story starts in June of 1982, where he claims to have met Dr. Edward Teller, before a lecture. At this time, Lazar supposedly worked for Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. In 1988, after leaving Los Alamos, Lazar wrote a letter to Teller and mentioned he was job hunting. He soon received a call from Dr. Teller, followed by a call for an interview at EG&G (Edger, Germeshausen & Grier) Special Projects. Lazar says he was interviewed and hired by agents from the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI). He initially believed he was hired for work on an advanced propulsion system, and later heard that he was to replace one of three scientists who had been killed in an attempt to cut into an alien power plant reactor. Lazar claims that he was actually hired to study and reverse-engineer the power plant from an alien craft. The location of his place of work was S-4, sometimes referred to as Dreamland, the Ranch, or Skunk Works, about fifteen miles south of Area 51. According to Lazar, S-4 consisted of a complex facility with serveral hangers built into the side of a mountain.
To prepare him for his new job, he says he was required to read some 200 pages of briefing documents. Bob claims that within these blue booklets was information regarding the aliens and their technology, along with other supposed secret government projects. Some of these projects included the study of gravity drive, referred to as "Galileo", looking back in time, known as "Looking Glass", and a neutron beam weapon codenamed "Sidekick". All of these projects were said to be under a program called "Project Overview". According to the documents, aliens have been visiting Earth for a millennia and they refer to it as Sol 3. They claim that man is the result of 65 genetic corrections made over thousands of years. One group of aliens, referred to as "The Kids", came from the Zeta Reticuli star system. The documents stated that religion was given to man so he would have rules and regulations for the purpose of not damaging the containers. The "container" would refer to our physical bodies, but it is uncertain whether they referred to us as containers for the soul, or containers of DNA.
According to Bob, he worked at S-4 from December of 1988, to April of 1989. He claims to have worked on one of nine alien crafts stored in hangers there. He says the alien craft's power source was a matter/antimatter reactor, similar to our nuclear reactors but about the size of a soccer ball. This reactor produced waves that nullified gravity through the use of a super-heavy substance, he named Element 115, after its theoretical atomic number. Lazar said that one of the saucers looked like it had been hit by a large caliber projectile because it had a hole that ran from the bottom, up through the top with the metal bent outward. He claims to have also witnessed a short test flight of one of the crafts. Lazar's clearance was supposedly denied because he was viewed as a security risk when a tapped phoneline revealed he was having marital problems. Prior to leaving his work at S-4, Lazar took five friends to the mountains surrounding Area 51 to watch the lights of UFO's being flown there.
It's hard to evaluate Lazar's incredible claims. EG&G and Los Alamos National Laboratory have stated that they never heard of him, although a 1982 Los Alamos laboratory internal phone book lists "Robert Lazar" along with other scientists. Other employees have been found that have confirmed that Bob had worked with them at Los Alamos on top-secret work, concerning the SDI Star Wars project. Lazar has also been able to produce a W-2 Wage and Tax Statement for 1989. It shows the employer as United States Department of Naval Intelligence, Washington D.C., and an OMB identification number listed as E-6722MAJ. Following several death threats and a supposed shooting attempt, Lazar decided to go public with his story, in order to protect himself. He figured that once the information was out there, he would be left alone. He felt that they did not do things for revenge, but only to keep the information hidden in the first place. It would be too obvious if something were to happen to him, after he went public. Many believe that Lazar's education and work records have been intentionally destroyed, altered or hidden, because even the school he claims to have attended, has no record of him. Others think that he is a total fraud who wanted the spotlight for a time. Others think that he may have been used to leak certain information to the public as a plan to prepare us for the truth. Whatever the case, the only logical thing that anyone could do to Lazar after he told his story, would be to discredit him in any way possible so no one would believe him. Many argue that this has been accomplished.
