Space Warp Propulsion – Part 4

[This is the fourth part in the Space Warp Propulsion series.  Part 1 presented the Space Warp Dynamics’ Bluebird IIvehicle, Part 2 examined the Alien Reproduction Vehicle (ARV), and Part 3 presented  the wormhole theory of interstellar travel.  In Part 4 we examine the fabled Bob Lazar “Sport Model” and ask what our takeaway might be — 30 years later.]

anti-matter                             a material composed of the antiparticles of the corresponding particles of ordinary matter.  Theoretically, a particle and its anti-particle (such as a proton and an anti-proton) have the same mass but opposite electric charge.  For example, a proton has a positive charge and an anti-proton has a negative charge.   When ordinary matter and its anti-matter come together, annihilation occurs and this results in a release of energy.

element 115                            prior to its discovery in 2003, it was tentatively named Ununpentium in the Periodic Table of Elements.  

Moscovium is a synthetic chemical element (symbol: Mc) with an atomic number of 115.  It was first synthesized in 2003 by a team of Russian and American scientists at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, Russia.  The American scientists were from Laurence Livermore National Laboratory.  Moscovium is a heavy metal; its main isotopes have atomic weights of 287 to 290 (all unstable radioisotopes).  Bob Lazar claimed that an isotope of 115 was stable (presumably meaning an isotope with an atomic weight of 291).   

gravity amplifiers                  a set of three devices located within the lower deck of the Sport Model craft which amplify (increase in the magnitude of) and focus gravity waves.

gravitational waves              ripples in the curvature of space-time that propagate as waves outward from their source at the speed of light and without mass (i.e. massless). Gravitational waves were first discovered in 2015.

gravity waves                        a wave that propagates spontaneously from the nucleus of super-heavy elements.  Presumably, this would be derived from the strong nuclear force in those elements.  Same as gravitational waves.

isotope                                    an isotope is a form of a chemical element with a nucleus consisting of the same number of protons, but a specific number of neutrons.  All isotopes of moscovium (see element 115 above) have the same number of protons (115).  Example: moscovium–287 contains 172 neutrons.  Moscovium-290 contains 175 neutrons.  These and two others are radioisotopes (i.e., radioactive).  Presumably (?), moscovium-291 is stable and nonradioactive with 176 neutrons.

space-time                              any mathematical model that fuses the three dimensions of space and the one dimension of time into a single four-dimensional continuum.  Also called spacetime.

wave guide                             a vertical tube located in the center of the Sport Model that propagates the gravity waves upward and then downward along the sides of the craft to the gravity amplifiers.

Is There Really An S4 Facility?

My first and only meeting with Bob Lazar was at the Little A’Le’Inn in Rachel, Nevada, in 1990/91.  I was in a small group coordinated and led by Gary Schultz.  Lazar, at that time in his 20s, was quite reserved,  matter-of-fact,  and, most importantly, alarmingly believable.

At the end of Lazar’s informal presentation, I asked how I could see the Sport Model in operation. Lazar told us to be at the fences demarcating BLM (Bureau of Land Management) land and the restricted area facing Papoose Mountain (a dozen miles south of Area 51).  He said that the S4 facility was located under the mountain adjacent to Papoose Lake on the opposite side.  We were told to get settled down around 8 pm on a Wednesday night. I asked why Wednesday night, and Lazar said that that was the night when flight testing was often scheduled due to the low civilian traffic count on Highway 375 (years later named the “Extraterrestrial Highway”).

On other occasions, Gary Schultz and Norio Hayakawa escorted much larger parties to that location on Wednesday nights.  On our very first visit, at around 8 to 9 pm we saw only a series of red flares launched and slowly drifting down under their parachutes.  The S4 team was no doubt having a lot of laughs at our expense. Undeterred, we continued the trek from Los Angeles to Rachel week after week until we got results.  The photograph below was taken by Gary Schultz on one of those occasions.  A flashing red light was hovering motionless in the night sky.  Gary took the shot and days later, he was quite surprised to see what developed.

A couple of years later, Jan Harzan and I were camped out on a Wednesday night along the fence facing Papoose Mountain.  There was no guarantee, of course, that any test flights would be done on that night and there weren’t.  We were just packing up at about 5:45 am on Thursday morning and were looking south in the direction Las Vegas.  At approximately 6 am, we spotted a small, silent and intense, star-like light that “just appeared out of nowhere.”  It hovered there in broad daylightand then took a slow, irregular path directly toward the mountain and disappeared behind it.  Two more appeared, separated by about five minutes each.  For me, this seemed more likely to be three vehicles returning from a training mission and not just a test flight.  For us, we then knew that S4 was very real.

The Sport Model

Bob Lazar claims that there were nine separate hangars at the S4 facility.  Although not all witnesses agree, generally, the hangars each contained a different type of craft.  For example, there was a “Jello mold”-shaped craft, a “straw hat”-shaped craft, etc. Allegedly, the Sport Model, at least at one time, was stored in hangar 1.  

According to Lazar, “[T]he disc was approximately 15 feet tall and about 52 feet in diameter.  It had the appearance of brushed stainless steel or brushed aluminum.  I did run my hands down the side of it getting in, and it felt cold, like metal, and it looked like metal.  It had no physical seams, no welds or bolts or rivets, and it looked as if it were injection molded.

Inside the S4 Hangar 1: the Sport Model [2]

Inside, there were tiny little seats, much too small to comfortably handle an average-sized human. I bumped my head on the ends of the craft, so I concluded that the ceiling curved down to below five feet, 11 inches inside.  There was not a right angle cut anywhere in the craft.  Everything had a smooth curve to it.” [3]

The Reactor and Element 115

“The reactor, which produced anti-matter and then reacted it with matter in an annihilation reaction, was only about 18 inches in diameter and 12 inches tall and was located in the center of the disc.  It operated like a tiny ballet, where everything that happened relied on the effect before it.  The way it accelerated protons inside of it, the way the heat was converted to electricity, was totally smooth without any wasted heat or latent energy.  It was phenomenal, approaching a 100-percent dynamic efficiency.  Now that seems impossible when you consider the laws of thermodynamics.  All I can say is that this technology is well beyond anything that we now know with our twentieth-century knowledge.” [5]

Lazar’s anti-matter reactor core [6]

“The reactor is fueled with an element that is not found here on Earth.  Part of my contribution to the program was to find out where this element plugged into the periodic chart [Periodic Table of Elements]. Well, it didn’t plug in anywhere, so we placed it at an atomic number of 115.  It has been theorized for some time that elements around 113, 114, and 115 may become stable and nonradioactive, and this is apparently what we were seeing. Element 115 is a stable element, but one with some interesting properties.  It can be used inside the reactor as a fuel, but also as the source of an energy field accessed by the craft’s gravity amplifiers.  In other words, the craft was both fueled and propelled by virtue of element 115.

“There was a storage of silver-dollar-sized discs of element 115 from which triangular wedges were cut and put into the reactor.  It was a copper-orange color and extremely heavy.  While it was not radioactive, we assumed it was a toxic material and consequently handled it as such.” [7]

Operational Modes

“[T]here were three gravity amplifiers positioned in a triad at the base of the craft.  These were the propulsion devices. Essentially, what they did was amplify gravity waves out of phase with those of the earth.  The craft operated in two modes — omicron and delta, which indicated how many gravity amplifiers were in use.  In the omicron configuration, only one amplifier was used; the other two were swung out of the way and tucked inside the disc.  In omicron mode, the crafts can essentially rise and hover. . .  To leave the atmosphere, however, all three gravity amplifiers have to be powered up and focused on the desired location.  Finally, the crafts do not travel in a linear mode.  Rather, we determined that the discs produced their own gravitational fields in order to distort time and space and essentially pull their destination to them.”  [8]

Just because you have energy, you do not travel faster than light.  The actual propulsion devices are the gravity amplifiers that are powered by the anti-matter reactor.  The Earth has its own gravitational waves.  But the idea is to create a gravitational field surrounding the craft itself.  The gravity amplifiers then amplify the craft’s gravity waves.  According to Lazar, the generated gravity waves surrounding the craft are out of phase with the Earth’s gravity waves.  To me then, this means that there are really two gravitational fields, one within the craft and the other one is Earth’s.  Somehow the two gravity fields are then “balanced” for travel within the Earth’s atmosphere and maybe our Solar System’s gravitational fields.  Lastly, the gravitational field of the craft is then used to “distort” space-time and “pull” the destination (i.e., the extraterrestrial destination) to the craft. This may only require a relatively short period of time to travel from “A” to “B”.   “A” may be Zeta 2 Reticuli and “B” may be on the edge of our Solar System.

Jeremy Cordell Documentaries

More recently, Jeremy Cordell, a videographer, has produced several documentary films, one of them being Bob Lazar, Area 51 & Flying Saucers. [10]  Highlighted are a number of developments since the early 1990s.  Among the revelations are:

  • George Knapp, the KLAS-TV (Las Vegas) anchorman, was first to publicly reveal Bob Lazar’s identity.  Knapp claims that in 1989 he confirmed the existence of the S4 facility through contacts that he had at Nellis AFB in Nevada.  A similar more recent telephone call to their Office of Public Affairs brought on a denial.
  • During the intervening years, Knapp also contacted a “Dr. Krangle” who once worked with Lazar at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.  Krangle identified Lazar as a “physicist” who worked with him.  Knapp says that he had six other eye witnesses who claimed to have worked at S4.  They refused to speak to him after that due to security repercussions.
  • Lazar says that when he first saw the Sport Model, “It felt ominous.”  His first thought was that it must be an American-made craft.  But when he went into the interior, he saw the very small seats and realized it was extraterrestrial in origin.  Lazar says that everything was “rounded,” meaning that the interior appeared as if it were all constructed as one piece.  Everything appeared to have a gunmetal gray coloration. He claims that although he saw no extraterrestrial beings, he did see examples of their writing and the autopsy photos and drawings.
  • Lazar claims that he illegally removed some of the fuel triangles from the laboratory.  For fear of the severe consequences, he came forward into the public light.  Lazar claims that he was not successful in reverse engineering the propulsion system.


It is only too apparent that over the last three decades, the preponderance of opinion about Bob Lazar has been negative.  I can only speak personally, but after meeting him in the early 1990s, my sense was and still is that he’s been truthful.   At the very least, this is what he believes to be true.  I like to keep four facts in mind: [1] Moscovium,element 115, was discovered in 2003; [2] Gravitational waves were only discovered in 2015, 25 years after Lazar first described his “gravity waves”; [3] How would Lazar be aware of the Wednesday night flight test schedule if he had not been inside S4? and [4] Lazar has not changed his story in 30 years.
