The American author and ufologist once claimed to have been in contact with an extraterrestrial from Venus.
A controversial figure in the annals of ufology, Van Tassel was an accomplished aircraft mechanic and flight inspector who worked for various firms between 1930 and 1947 before retiring to the desert.

He rose to prominence as a key figure of interest in 1953 after claiming that he had been awoken one night by an alien from Venus named Solgonda. The being allegedly invited him aboard its spacecraft where Van Tassel was telepathically gifted the plans for a device called the "Integratron" which was said to be capable of rejuvenating the human body.

The following year, he and a few others began building the device out in the desert.

Said to be capable of not only rejuvenation but time travel and anti-gravity as well, the "Integratron" was built on what Van Tassel claimed was "an intersection of powerful geomagnetic forces that, when focused by the unique geometry of the building, will concentrate and amplify the energy required for cell rejuvenation."
The device resembled a strange domed wooden structure which lacked any screws or nails.

Van Tassel himself died in 1978 of a heart attack, leaving the device unfinished and non-functional.

You can view an old interview featuring the man himself below.

With a mean surface temperature of 842 F, science long ago proved someone's fantastical delusion false.

If one happens to fancy NPL eye movements, this is an interesting interview. He continually looks to his right and perhaps down -- associated with constructing, maybe lying, with regard to feelings. Eighteen miles from nowhere makes for an active imagination.

https://www.integratron.com/    The link is for the actual " Working " Integratron ,    for me, for what would be nothing more than a meditation retreat , way way too expensive, especially to just have some people ringing bells and plinking away on some bowls.  It is a pretty cool building though, especially to not be held together by nails or screws.   The thing about the initial story, as goofy as it sounds, is humanity now has the capability to clone certain animals, and grow at least an ear on the back of mice, saw that some where...  had someone back then said, aliens gave him a way to cl...

Wow, It truly is a beautiful building...He makes me think of L. Ron Hubbard. Maybe he wanted to start a religion that he could be the boss of. This is historically pretty common.

He was a possible cult leader.

The files often reference that he is being investigated for links to communism. '' The saucer groups appear to be another means of raising funds for the Communist Party''. Pretty interesting read actually.
