• Element 115, or ‘moscovium’, is a super-heavy element, heavier than uranium, that was only added to the periodic table of elements in 2016. But in 1989, the former Area 51 employee, Bob Lazar, said that he had worked with element 115 at the classified Nevada military base. It was used, he said, in relation to reverse-engineering and flying the nine alien spacecraft that were being stored at Area 51.
• Those Area 51 spaceships utilized the characteristics of element 115 to harness the inherent power of gravity as a propulsion system. Lazar said that it would be impossible to synthesize such a super heavy element here on Earth. “It has to come from a place where super-heavy elements could have been produced naturally,” said Lazar.
• Jacklyn Gates is a scientist with the Heavy Elements Group in the Nuclear Science Division for Berkeley Lab in California. She describes element 115 as “a man-made, super-heavy element that has 115 protons in its nucleus.” Gates says that element 115 is an extremely rare element that can only be made one atom at a time in a particle accelerator. Furthermore, it exists for just a fraction of a second before it decays into another element. Gates reasons that Bob Lazar could not have known about element 115 because the element decays too fast to be used as UFO fuel. Therefore, she cannot see any connection between element 115 and Lazar’s claims.
• Gates agrees, however, that moscovium is an amazing element. She says that it is a sign that we’re pushing the boundaries of what we know about the universe. So far, moscovium doesn’t have a practical use outside of scientific study. But scientists predict that they will achieve an ‘island of stability’ where moscovium might exist longer than one second – perhaps months or years in the right environment. “That is long enough that we might be able to use them for practical applications,” says Gates.
• Element 115 was “officially” discovered in 2003 in Dubna, Russia when it was created at the Flerov Laboratory for Nuclear Reactions by a group of scientists led by nuclear physicist Yuri Oganessian. The element was eventually named moscovium because Dubna is located in Moscow. “To create a super-heavy element, you need the complete fusion of two lighter elements,” says Gates. This process produced four atoms of moscovium.
• Virginia Trimble is a physics and astronomy professor at the University of California Irvine who also finds element 115 exciting. These heavy elements “don’t always decay in the expected patterns, and where more than a few atoms can be produced at once, they don’t always have the chemical properties that you would expect from their position in the periodic table,” says Trimble. [T]heir properties provide stronger and stronger tests of our basic physical understanding.”
• [Editor’s Note] The University of California, Berkley is a notorious deep state institution. And Jacklyn Gates, a scientist in the Nuclear Science Division at Berkeley Lab, proves it again. Lazar spoke of element 155 and its properties in 1989. But the element wasn’t created on Earth until 2003. Lazar thought it would be ‘impossible’ to make on Earth because the super heavy element needed an alien environment. (Apparently, the Area 51 scientists obtained the element from an extraterrestrial source.) Just as Lazar had depicted, Gates describes the painstaking scientific methods required to make element 155 exist for even a fraction of a second before decaying.
Still, Gates says that she cannot see any connection between element 115 and Lazar’s claims. She refutes Lazar’s contention that the scientists at Area 51 could have been using a stable element 155 as a part of the spacecrafts’ anti-gravity propulsion… because she was unable to stabilize the element. This reminds me of the age-old adage about why a person could not have seen a UFO: “because UFOs don’t exist!” These deep state scientists are surely under mind control.
Element 115 is an enigma of sorts. It was only added to the periodic table in 2016, yet for decades it has
attracted extra attention because of a supposed connection to extraterrestrial technology and alien lifeforms.
Intrigued? Before we answer whether there is a connection, let’s find out what element 115 really is.
“Element 115, or moscovium, is a man-made, super-heavy element that has 115 protons in its nucleus,” emails Jacklyn Gates, a scientist with the Heavy Elements Group in the Nuclear Science Division for Berkeley Lab in California. (As with all elements on the periodic table, the element’s
number corresponds to the number of protons in the nucleus of the element’s atom.) “That is 23 more protons than the heaviest element that you can find in large quantities on Earth, uranium.”
Gates says that element 115 is an extremely rare element that’s made one atom at a time in particle accelerators. It exists for just a fraction of a second before it decays into another element.
“It is special because it is near a predicted ‘island of stability’ where some super-heavy nuclei might have much longer lifetimes. Instead of living for less than a second, they could exist for minutes, days or even years! That is long enough that we might be able to use them for practical applications,” she says.
Element 115 was discovered in 2003 in Dubna, Russia at the Flerov Laboratory for Nuclear Reactions by a group of scientists led by nuclear physicist Yuri Oganessian. The element was eventually named moscovium because Dubna is in Moscow.
