The man who allegedly reverse-engineered UFOs is the subject of a new documentary about his time at Area 51.
Widely attributed with bringing the secretive test facility in to the limelight, the 59-year-old made headlines in 1989 when he revealed that he had worked with captured extraterrestrial technology during his time at 'S4' - a site situated near to Area 51 - between 1988 and 1989.

An alleged witness to captured alien 'saucers', Lazar claimed to have intimate knowledge of what powered them - Element 115 - a chemical element that wouldn't be synthesized until 2003.
He also maintained that he had seen government briefing documents describing alien involvement in humans affairs over thousands of years.

Now a new documentary from filmmaker Jeremy Corbell entitled 'Bob Lazar: Area 51 and Flying Saucers' aims to explore Lazar's life and the remarkable claims that have come to define it.

A trailer for the documentary, which will be available to stream on Dec 18th, can be viewed below.

Bob Lazar appears to be a hoaxer. His story does not seem to be true except that he was a short term employee for a contract firm.  I also noticed that he claims a remarkably short period of time for a clearance check. A top secret clearance check takes months and often a year. No one is corroborating his statements. But the evidence does show that he is not who he claims to be and his physics claims are also shown to be wrong. I am always surprised that people still believe him.  Here is such a case with Knapp saying he believes in Lazar. [More]

Here is more evidence that Lazar is a hoaxer. Everything has an effect and the effects claimed by Lazar should be detectable. Their absence tells us that Lazar made up nonsense to fool the gullible. Apparently, he still does.

it does become a little tedious after a while, dont it

If we continue on with the article we find some more problems with Lazar. Search on "A problem arises when you read the Monitor article’s report of the claims Lazar made for the jet in his car." and you will find that he was untruthful about an engine he used on his bike. He also claimed to be a physicist when in fact e was a technician at Los Alamos. The text covers the following tidbit. The article goes on to tell  how he ends up with a job at Area 51 and then scre... [More]

Bob has never come across as being charming, just confident and to the point, rather shy. He even regrets spillng the beans! He's never been an attention whore. As for his degrees, I don't think he said he graduated from any school, just attended courses. He seems to me another Bill Gates or Steve Jobs in the sense they are smart and gifted individuals who got bored easily at school, if you know what I mean. Wasn't always there  doubts whether Bob had any connection to any lab in Nevada? Well, there you go, now there's evidence. If you ask me, his schooling is not the most important thing here... [More]

Actually he claims degrees from MIT and Caltech. He even has that stated in his bankruptcy filing. Not only has he stated it but he has put it in writing. There is no mistaking that he has pretended to many people to have degrees from those schools. The fact that he lies about his schooling begs the question as to what other things he openly lies about. Did he lie about his job at Los Alamos? Almost certainly since  he claimed to be a physicist yet he worked a company that did not put that type of person into a job at Los Alamos. Did he reverse engineer anything at all? Unlikely. He was a repa... [More]

Let's fix this situation about whether or not he lied about his degrees. Did he claim to have those degrees? He has openly stated he has degrees from those schools. He never attended those schools. His name is on no dissertations. He is not in the yearbooks or school newspapers. He can't name professors and no one in the departments seems to know him. He is known to have attended Pierce and the years he was enrolled at Pierce matches the time he claims to have been at MIT, almost 3000 miles away. Yet, as soon as he gets to Los Alamos he ... [More]

Lazar has other stories to tell like a hydrogen fueled car running on fuel he made with his own particle accelerator. From a comment at

Lazar is an enigma while i dont believe things happened and are just how he says i also do not believe he is 100% a charlatan, i get a vibe he likes to embelish. What we can say for certain is the available evidence doesn’t support Lazar’s claims. Whether that means he’s lying, confused, or the victim of an elaborate interplanetary conspiracy who knowns. And for now i place lazar in my folder with files like the pgf.
