Bob Lazar is widely recognized as the Area 51 whistle-blower who revealed aliens and the government work together in secret bases, in 1989.
The man claims to have seen tests flights of nine ‘confiscated’ UFOs and even argues he worked in secret government facilities where he reverse-engineering alien technology, helping build manmade, futuristic spacecraft.
A new documentary, ‘Bob Lazar: Area 51 and Flying Saucers’ aims to investigate his life, his theories, and where he is now, after having worked in a number of secretive government facilities where he witnessed things out of this world.
Thirty years ago, Bob Lazar claimed to have worked as an engineer near Area 51 at a hangar based called S-4. There, he claims UFOs with tiny alien seats were made out of a material called Element 115.
He told reporters that “The propulsion system is a gravity propulsion system. The power source is an antimatter reactor. This technology does not exist at all.”
Back then, the US Government denied the existence of Area 51. In fact, the base was only acknowledged by the government in 2013. Previously documents provided by the CIA listed the secretive base only as an aviation test site.
Speaking about what was going on at Area 51 and other governmental bases, Lazar described how covering up the existence of these bases was “a crime against the scientific community”.
He claimed that after he revealed the existence of the base, and what was being done there, the Government threatened him and his family.
In the documentary, he explains how he regrets blowing the whistle on Area 51, and the technology developed there, saying: “At this point in my life, I’d probably lean towards not saying anything.”
The Government whistleblower even claims that once, the FBI stormed his laboratory. “At the risk of sounding paranoid, I do always have a suspicion that someone is monitoring me – it’s something that is difficult to get out of my mind.”
But things have changed in Lazar’s life. He admits that he is no longer interested in UFOs and tales about aliens and secret bases.
“I do not follow UFO stories or reports and am not interested in researching life outside of Earth.”
“My primary interest was and still is, the incredibly advanced technology. I know if we can control and develop it, it can change the world.”
But not everyone believes in that Lazar is saying, and his reputation has gone through up’s and downs in the recent past. While investigating his background, researchers failed to find proof he attended the schools he said he did: MIT and the California Institute of Technology show no evidence of Lazar ever studying there.
Speaking about his life in the documentary, he asks: “How can I prove anything else? Do you think Los Alamos just hired me out of high school?”
Speaking about Lazar, and the controversial documentary, documentary filmmaker Jeremy Corbell spoke with Mail Online saying: “If this story’s true, it is probably the most important UFO story in human history, because it reveals the truth.”
