Some of the heavy trans-uranic elements have finally been named, and it's good to know there's a group out there that does the naming:

Three new elements named, including one for Copernicus

So there we have it: elements 110, 111, and 112, will be called Darmstadtium (after the city in Germany, Darmstadt, where it was first isolated and discovered), Roengenium, and Copernicum, respectively.

Darmstadt of course, figures heavily into the story of well-known UFO-seer, Bob Lazar. Lazar, in case you don't know, touched off something of a controversy within the halls of UFOlogy, not entirely bereft of controversy themselves, when he came forward years ago to claim he had been part of a team back-engineering captured alien flying saucers at a super-secret research base in Area 51 at Papoose lake, an installation he calls "S-4".  Lazar claimed to have worked at Los Alamos NAtional laboratories, being personally recruited by Dr. Edward Teller, before going to the super-secret project at S-4.

There at S-4,. Lazar claims to have encountered element 115, which was used to power the alien saucer he was helping to back engineer. According to a version of the story, he and friend John Lear actually managed to get possession of the element for a period of time of a few minutes. Then, in subsequent interviews, Lazar claimed to have been contacted by the high energy laboratory in Darmstadt to come work there, doubtless for his alleged experience working with the super-heavy elements.

While it is true that element 115 was in fact subsequently "officially" discovered at Darmstadt, and while it is true that these elements constitute an island of stability with relatively longer half lives than others, I remain intensely skeptical that the claim to have collected any sample of the material for a number of minutes is true, given the short half-lives of these elements.

But in any case, I have a suggestion for the committee that names elements, just for kicks: why not name it Lazarium, and element 116, Learium?

    Hehehe. I’ve read a similar story. According to Phill Schneider ( see for a good compilation about him ) the element 123 is currently sinthetized with alien tech traded with the US military. Acording to him the F-117 Stealth is covered with such element.

    Just a curiosity.

    The perfect cover for black projects there extraterrestrial Bob Lazar was only telling what he was told what he was working on, What I have always wondered why the military didn’t say what crash at Roswell was booty the Americans found at the end of WW2 that would have been closer to the truth than a silly weather balloon story and would have better killed the story.

    Why not call it delerium?

    One observation to those inclined to reject, out of hand, the info of those they find as sub-par personalities…

    I realize that some here react in a knee-jerk manner to the verbalizations of Bob (hot-shot) Lazar and John (know-it-all) Lear. As one who tended to do likewise for many years, I would caution that even those we find repugnant in one manner or another can in fact have valuable information that should be considered. A modern colloqualism comes to mind “Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water.” Once you have learned to practice this sort of tact you will perhaps have less back-tracking to do to arrive at the truth. Just a thought.

    Lots of laughs to celebrate my 68th birthday today. Now, Joseph P. you know how old I am.

    The Project Camelot interview of John Lear was one of their more entertaining videos. The man is a great pilot and smart to boot. For any who have viewed these Lear videos; have you noticed how his pile of documents he pulls out has continued to grow in depth over the years? He knows a lot.

    Mr. Lazar: I tend to believe the man. Pulling his college records would be child’s play for government, both seen and unseen. My long, and sometimes painful, years with Uncle Sam and his nephews tells me this. And today that government’s long arm with Google attached to the end, can reach into our computers and snatch out seemingly well hidden documents and delete them. “Happy trails” everybody.

    Lazar was a DISinformer, brainwashed, nuts and / or
    looking for attention.
    All of the above.

      That’s like Sitchin’s ancient rocket launching pad.
      Or his Nazca lines saying land here………..

      So advanced they needed rockets.

        I was thinking more in line with ……
        The Sphinx !

      • HAL838 on November 15, 2011 at 4:22 pm

        Actually, I usually put it in caps because there are two ways to configure it
        (with the # 838) so that when pushed together in two different ways,
        the geometry can be transformed into two equations;
        one linear and one non-linear;
        both necessary to what I had in mind
        it evidently worked as it was worked out by some friends of mine.

        I wonder if Clarke knew that (?)

        I have good instincts for things like that.

        We can’t all be conformists ! 😉

    I think that the USA has a lot more than Bob Lazar’ “sports model” now, in fact it wouldn’t surprise me if they had a whole squardron of them.

    Wether you believe Bob Lazar or not, the good Dr. Farrell I’m sure is well aware that the Nazi’s instigated and completed, the research on off- world craft, long ago and maybe, just maybe they are going to have to show their hand at some point. No use having a bunch of “flying dishes/plates” if you cant brag about it.

    I think that the retirement of the shuttle reaks of the fact that they have, hmmmm “SOMETHING BETTER”.

  8. Ed Young on November 14, 2011 at 12:39 pm

    Is anyone here following this story? (Speaking of elements, in this case the cold fusing kind. The device is called e-cat, short for energy-catylizer. Inventor said to have sold one to an unnamed american corporation on 10-28-11 for $one million, and to have taken orders for 13 more. Interestingly, redirects to Google’s green inititives homepage.)

    I remember seeing Lear and his extensive collection, including ‘moon cities’ and other moon-blueprint-projects.
    Unbelievable, and yet, given the purposeful suppression –
    not as unbelievable, as it would have been, ‘many moons ago’.

  10. Chuck on November 14, 2011 at 10:53 am

    Can we name anything associated with Lazar bullshitonium? That would ring nicely.

  11. Citizen Quasar on November 14, 2011 at 10:03 am

    Since I first heard of both Bob Lazar and John Lear on ‘Coast to Coast AM,’ how about giving credit where credit is due and name them (a la Neilsbohrium,) ArtBellium and GeorgeNooryum?

    Also, while it might sound too patronizing to name one Farrellium, Nefarium has a nice ring to it.

  12. Marc on November 14, 2011 at 8:32 am

    Dr. Farrell,

    Have you already seen this?

    • Citizen Quasar on November 14, 2011 at 9:57 am

      Interesting. Thanks for posting this.

    • david wilson on November 14, 2011 at 11:37 am

      Are these structures or does anyone think that these grids could be drawn into the landscape by satellite borne lasers or masers ( not too sure of technological capabilities of either) in much the same way it has been suggested intricate crop circles could be produced?
      This might be a tenuous link but the black technology is there to lay out perfect 3D images on rough terrain from satellite and my suspicion was first aroused when I learned that Rochenfelder had sponsored some crop circle research early on.

    • Chuck on November 14, 2011 at 12:08 pm

      The first is artwork (soldiers have been used in the past to create large desert patterns)

      The second is a missile test range, it looks just like our test ranges

      And the third is an optical illusion, either a pattern on the lens or reflections of solar paneling on a satellite. After looking at this one more closely you can tell the pattern is too perfect for a ground based object.

      Not rock solid, but it’s the most likely explanation.. Always go with the less fantastic and it will probably be true. That and follow the money..

  13. LSM on November 14, 2011 at 7:54 am

    “Darmstadt of course, figures heavily…”-

    it most probably always has-

    Darmstadt is just slightly north of Frankfurt-

    for those who don’t understand much German (not an accusation on my part- anything but), if one literally translates the name Darmstadt into English it means “intestine city” (Darm: intestine- Stadt: city)-

    so why name a city a GUT?- hey, there’s a reason for everything- to paraphrase Peter Levenda: “coincidence doesn’t exist- the universe isn’t that lazy”-

    my point being: Darmstadt has a much more important history/figures into the present than most are aware of-

    history (if one is not yet aware of the following): the House of Hesse-Darmstadt was the original home of Russia’s last Czarina, Alexandra-

    the location of Germany’s faction of the European Space Agency is (could we have guessed?)……………


    yep, good ol’ “GUT-city”-

    connect the dots-

    Larry in Germany
