CLASSIFIED NATIONAL SECURITY DOCUMENT ABOUT PENTAGEN / CRYSTAL RECTANGLE / NEVADA TEST SITE



MODERATOR's NOTE:

LEGEND:

[CR = Crystal Rectangle, Eben alien energy device]

[NTS = Nevada Test Site]

1) U.S. Secret Production of Pentagen (Hydrogen-5).

A. Tritium is made by capturing neutrons in helium gas. To supply the
neutrons, protons are energized in a linear accelerator and used to
bombard a heavy-metal target made of tungsten and lead, creating
neutrons in a process known as spallation. The resulting neutrons are
moderated (slowed) by collisions with lead and water, increasing the
efficiency of their capture in helium gas flowing through the target to
make tritium. The tritium is extracted from the gas continuously,
providing supply to the stockpile.

B. While making Tritium, U.S. researchers found that another isotope
quickly vanished in the process. In fact, several isotopes were
discovered that bounced off the tungsten metal. U.S. researchers began a
program that attempted to capture these elusive isotopes. One secret
facility was built on the Nevada Test Site. This facility was called,
"The Lance."

The cover for this facility was that it contained an experimental
chemical production accelerator. A Tritium production facility contained
an Injector, Accelerator, Tritium Production and Tritium Separation
facilities. "The Lance"  contained an Injector, Accelerator, Containment
building, Collection Apparatus and a Storage Vessel.

C. The MAKING of PENTAGEN. Although the exact details of this is highly
classified, a rough explanation is stated below.

1) The INJECTOR: The process starts with the injector. A high energy
beam is directed at hydrogen atoms and accelerating them to form a
proton beam. This beam differs from the tritium beam in that instead of
a low energy beam, this beam is a high energy beam, enhanced with a
Chemical Laser booster.

2) The ACCELERATOR: The protons are accelerated by mixing a Carbon atom
and Nitrogen-13 isotope. This creates two carbon atoms, positron and a
neutrino. The B13 isotopes fuses to form a high energy booster (gamma).

3) The CONTAINMENT BUILDING: The Containment Building was built to house
the Injector and Accelerator. This building actually contains an
underground tunnel that leads from the Accelerator Facility to the
Containment Building. Because of the fusion and radiation involved in
the accelerator process, the Containment Building had to be over 1
Kilometer away. The exact reason for this is not known. The Accelerator
beam is directed from the Accelerator facility to the Containment
Building (tunnel).

4) The COLLECTION APPARATUS: This facility contains a complex series of
filters, which contains chemicals and other classified items. It is
believed to be similar to the tritium spallation process, however, there
are several different steps involved. The injection port contains "leak
valves," which contains a flow meter that measures the leakage of
Pentagen from this port. The leaking Pentagen is collected. Polonium is
used in this process, however the exact method is not known. Argon gas
is also used in one of the filtering systems. One filter contains Zinc
lined vessels that are charged with electrons.

5) The STORAGE VESSEL: This storage vessel is where the Pentagen is
finally collected and stored. The interior of the Vessel is lined with
an alloy of Beryllium. The Vessel contains several complex "collection"
tubes that collects, cools and stores the Pentagen during the final
production process. The final product is collected in liquid helium,
which is charged with gamma radiation.  As of September 2002, the U.S.
has collected 53.5 picocuries of Pentagen per liter of Helium. Once the
Pentagen is needed, there is a process by which the Pentagen is
extracted from the Helium. This process is CLASSIFIED.

D. "The Lance" is jointly operated by scientists from Los Alamos,
Brookhaven, Livermore, Sandia, and Savannah River Plant. A company by
the name of General Atomics built "The Lance."  Eagle Systems is also a
prime contractor.

E. According to one source, a "Visitor" explained how Pentagen was made.
But since the "Visitor" was explaining a system we could not fully
understand, our scientists took bits and pieces of the information and
started experiments. The U.S. first experimented with Pentagen
processing in 1977 at Los Alamos.

F. Pentagen is the fifth isotope of Hydrogen. It is radioactive with a
half life of .34222 seconds. However, with a complex containment and
storage system, Pentagen can be collected for an extended period of
time. Somehow, U.S. scientists found that Pentagen is produced naturally
on the Planet Mercury. Pentagen vapors can be detected in the lower
atmosphere of Mercury. In 2006, NASA plans on sending a probe to Mercury
in an effort to collect Pentagen. Los Alamos has a secret project
called, "Pindall," which will build a special collection method for the
space probe.

G. Pentagen is the substance that aggravates the energy process inside
the CR. Pentagen inside the CR is not radioactive and will not decay.

H. There is also an experiment using Pentagen to enhance energy output
inside Electrical Transformers. Sandia Laboratory is currently
conducting this experiment. The experiment is being conducted in Tech
Area III.

I. The director of "The Lance," is Philip Conklin, a Department of
Energy Scientist.

J. "The Lance" will be expanded in 2008, which will include two
additional structures that will house "new technology" in the production
of Pentagen.

K. It is believed that MIT and The University of Miami has experimented
with the collection of Hydrogen-5 by using a Chlorofluorocarbon system
of collecting the Hydrogen-5. However, according to DOE, this method
does not work!

L. Hydrogen-4, which was also collected, was shown to be too unstable to
capture and retain for any extended period.

M. "The Lance" is manned by 62 scientists and technicians.

2. UPDATE ON THE CR
(Crystal Rectangle - Energy Source)

A. Since 1956, many experiments were conducted using the CR. Most of the
experiments were conducted by Los Alamos or a contractor for the
Department of Energy. Remember that the CR was described as follows:

The dimensions were 26cm x 17cm x  2.5cm. The CR weighs 728 grams. There
is a possibility that "two" CR exists. One that weighed 668 grams and
one that weighed 728 grams. There was a notation in a classified
document that read:  PVEED-1  [Particle Vacuum Enhanced Energy Device].
This would indicate that there is a PVEED-2!  Scientists do not refer to
the CR as a CR but as a PVEED, or "The Magic Cube."

B. Remember the small dot that moved around the inside when an energy
demand was placed on the CR?  Our  scientists have discovered the
substance contained in the dot. The dot was found to be a perfectly
rounded particle of charged (?) antimatter. Our scientists still don't
understand how this piece of antimatter can remain stable until it is
"tasked" with movement. They still don't understand once a demand is
made to the CR, that the antimatter starts its movement and creates
energy.

C. Our scientists have found the CR is made of an unknown material with
several unknown elements which have been  detected. One of the materials
is similar to carbon, but not exactly like carbon as we know it. Another
substance is similar to zinc, but not the same consistency of zinc.

D. Our scientists cannot explain the action of the antimatter and the
actions of neutrons that are created and then disappear when the demand
is lifted.

E. Our scientists cannot explain why the constant temperature of the CR
is 72 degrees. Even when heat is directed on the CR, the temperature
remains at 72 degrees. How this occurs cannot be explained.

F. Some scientists think the CR is operated remotely, perhaps by an
unknown satellite in Earth's orbit. However, even [when] shielded, the
CR operates normally.

G. When an energy demand is placed on the CR, it creates a signal, that
can be measured at 23.450 MHZ. However, when increased demand is placed
on the CR the frequency is modulated from 23.450 MHZ to 46.900 MHZ or
double the original frequency. However, when the demand is reduced, the
frequency drops to 1.25 KHZ, which is a constant frequency when no
demand is placed on the CR.   Regardless of what power demand is placed
on the CR, the frequency NEVER  raises to more than 46.900 MHZ!

H. Remember the small set of squares which contained horizontal wires?
The wires were determined to be similar to tungsten. The wires somehow
conduct  the energy by bouncing the neutrons off these wires back into
the fluid. The small dot bounces against the wire when energy demand is
placed on the CR. Remember, only certain wires would react or expand
when energy demand was placed on the CR. Scientists think that,
depending on the demand, only certain wires would expand. Somehow, the
energy output would be controlled by the amount of squares used.

I. The U.S. Government duplicate of the CR. The USG made one in 2001
that actually worked ... for a short period of time. The operation was
EXTREMELY  CLASSIFIED and the device blew up at the Nevada Test Site,
injuring two (2) employees.

J. The timeline for the CR is as follows:

1) 1947: CR found in the second crash site.

2) 1949: Los Alamos scientists first conducted experiments with CR. At
this time, no one knew what it was. Some scientists thought it was just
a window.

3) 1954: Sandia Labs conducted several experiments with the CR, but
still didn't know its actual use.

4) 1955: CR was lent to Westinghouse for experiments.

5) 1958: CR was lent to Corning Glass in an effort to determine its
construction material.

6) 1962: CR's first "official" test conducted at Los Alamos and
published in a classified report.

7) 1970: CR was determined to be more than a window. The CR was found to
fit into a space on the spacecraft. Scientists determined CR was some
sort of energy device.

8) 1978: CR determined to be a high powered energy device that provided
electrical power to the spacecraft.

9) 1982: CR was first tested and produced energy.  

10) 1987: CR was given to E-Systems for extensive testing.

11) 1990: CR was proven to be an UNLIMITED POWER SYSTEM. The
construction and contents of the CR was learned. However, no one knew
just how it worked.

12) 1998: CR project, "The Magic Cube" was started in an effort to
accelerate the knowledge of the device.

13) 2001: CR project, "The Magic Cube" was transferred from Los Alamos'
Futures Division to its "Special Projects ^ Section K" division.

K. Currently [as of September 2002], the CR is contained at the Section
K division facilities, Los Alamos.

3. UPDATE ON THE VISITORs' STATUS

A. Based on "Project Gleam" (will be discussed later), the U.S. can
communicate with our "Visitors."  The communication system is a complex,
highly classified series of relay stations and satellites. The
communication system is entitled, "Echelon."  It is run by the Defense
Communication Agency, and NOT the National Security Agency.

B. "The Visitors" have come to this planet or have provided direct
communication links to us on the following dates:

1) April 1964 - Socorro, NM.

2) April 1969 - White Sands, NM

3) April 1971 - White Sands, NM

5. Los Alamos "Project Gleam."

A. A highly classified project that deals with direct communication with
"The Visitors." New communication technology dealing with
multi-frequency sending units. Units direct multiple frequencies in a
particular direction. High speed sending system allows the beam to be
propelled at an enormous speed. Not too much more known about it. Los
Alamos and several contractors, including, EG&G, BDM, Motorola, Risburn
Corporation and Sandia, are [all] involved with this project. Facility
built at Site 40, Nevada Test Site.

One rumor (only rumor from my source) is that "The Visitors" provided us
with this technology. It enables us to communicate with "The Visitors"
in a speedier way, than in the past. Part of this program involves the
use of Chemical Lasers pushing the communication beam.

As it was explained to me (in layman's terms), several frequencies are
put together on a beam and propelled towards a target or receiver. The
receiver, then boosts the energy and re-sends the signal to another
point (relay?). Somehow, the Chemical Laser pushes the beam, thus
propelling it faster than normal.

B. More information on this project may be forthcoming NEXT year and
released via your [UFO Thread] list for posting on the SERPO.org Web
site.

6. Technology transfer from Area 51 to Nevada Test Site [NTS].

A. The NTS was established in the early 1950s by the old Atomic Energy
Commission to conduct above ground nuclear tests. The test site consists
of 1,426 square miles of test space and a total of 5,470 square miles of
bombing and other testing ranges. NTS is divided into 30 AREAS, which
are then divided into UNITS.

Nuclear testing, both above and below ground, were conducted in eight of
the 30 areas. Mercury is the base camp for NTS. Mercury includes all the
support facilities to operate the NTS. Although, officially the
Department of Energy's contractor, Bethtel operates NTS; unofficially,
NTS is controlled by U.S. Army Support Group "Lima."  You won't find
"Lima" mentioned in any official U.S. Army publications or unit
listings.

"Lima" is a CLASSIFIED OPERATING UNIT.

The security for NTS is officially performed by Wackenhut Security
Services, a private Department of Energy Contractor. However, of the 185
Wachenhut security officers, 57 are actually commissioned Federal Agents
by the Department of Justice. An additional 80 U.S. military policemen
perform classified security protections on NTS. An additional 44 USAF
Security Police guard the Special Storage Facility (SST), located in
Area 6, Unit 23A. The SSF stores special stockpile weapons (nuclear
weapons).

The existence of this SST is classified since the U.S. government won't
acknowledge it stores any more weapons than officially published under
the test ban treaties. The SST has approximately 300 nuclear weapons.
Next to this SST is another highly classified storage facility known as,
"Site K."  No one actually knows what is stored in "Site K," but some
believe it contains "Visitors gifts" to the U.S.!  Officially, NTS
advertises several facilities located on its property. One is the Device
Assembly Facility in Area 6, Unit 2A.

According to an official publication, this facility assembles nuclear
weapons prior to underground testing. Unofficially, this facility
conducts experiments on "Visitor Gifts."  Another facility contained on
NTS and officially named the "Big Explosive Experimental Facility,"
conducts simulations of explosions. Unofficially,  this facility houses
the underground entrance to Site U, which contains classified
underground testing facilities built in 1987. Sources reports Site U is
used to assemble Visitor's propulsion systems.

Although Bethtel operates the NTS, several other contractors have
buildings and conduct experiments on NTS. Amador Valley Operations, Los
Alamos, Lawrence Livermore, EG&G, Special Technical Laboratories, the U
of California, Special Physics Operational Laboratories, Sandia National
Laboratories, BDM Corporation, Motorola, Kyle-Witt Corporation, General
Motors Remote Research Facility, DRAC, CIA, NSA, USN, U.S. Army Special
Forces Training Center, USAF Scientific Evaluation Center, Defense
Communication Agency, Remote Operations Facilities, U.S. National
Reconnaissance Office, Advance Physics Laboratories, MIT, KENN
Corporation and General Dynamics.

ALIEN SCHEMATIC MOCK-UP

http://www.qtm.net/~geibdan/mandible/

"The RED BOOK" ^ "The Red Book" is an extremely thick, very detailed
account summary written and compiled by the U.S. government on UFO
investigations  dating from 1947 to the present day.  This
orange-brownish book is updated every five (5) years and also contains
some cross-over information from "The Yellow Book."

The "YELLOW BOOK" ^ The "Yellow Book" or "Bible" is the alien's
history of our universe written by the aliens themselves as well as
their interactions and involvement with Earth's development/evolution.
It was brought to Earth and presented to the U.S. government at the
famous Holloman AFB landing in April 1964 by female Ebe #2 which was
also translated by her.

Steven Spielberg's 1977 film, "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" is
based on the famous Holloman landing as well as the human-ET exchange
depicted at the very end with 10 (ten) men and two (2) women who are
shown embarking on the alien spacecraft.

III) DARA vs. DARPA IN THE PENTAGEN DOCUMENT

In the Pentagen Document, there is a reference to the Defense Advance
Research Agency (DARA). Unless there are two agencies with similar
names, this may be a typo, sloppiness, or a variation or shorthand on
the current full and official name and acronym, which is:

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Reference:

http://www.darpa.mil/

Variants of the agency name and use of the DARA acronym appear at:

http://www.public.asu.edu/~skiaei/Research%20Projects.htm

mentions "Defense Advance Research Agency (DARPA)" (? Discrepancy --
name and acronym do not match)


http://www.cdi.org/program/document.cfm?DocumentID=1726&from_page=../index.cfm

The Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is
attempting to create a low-cost space launch technology.  DARA hopes to
use a propulsion concept known as mass injection precompressor cooling
(MIPCC), as well as advances in rocket motors... (? Discrepancy -- two
acronyms for same agency?)

As for England military acronyms:

http://www.boeing.com/ids/news/1999/news_release_991025n.htm

ST. LOUIS, Oct. 25, 1999 -- The Boeing Company has awarded a contract to
the United Kingdom's Defence Aviation Repair Agency (DARA) for
inspection and repair work on CH-47 Chinook helicopter transmissions in
Europe.

IV) ECHELON:

According to Wikipedia.org, ECHELON is a highly secretive world-wide
signals intelligence and analysis network run by the UK-USA Community.
ECHELON can capture radio and satellite communications, telephone calls,
faxes and e-mails nearly anywhere in the world and includes computer
automated analysis and sorting of intercepts.

ECHELON is estimated to intercept up to 3 billion communications every
day.
Some of the known or suspected ground stations belonging to or
participating in the ECHELON network include the following:

Fort Meade, Maryland, U.S. (headquarters of the NSA)  

Geraldton (Western Australia, Australia)  

Menwith Hill (Yorkshire, UK)
Misawa Air Base (Japan)
Morwenstow (Cornwall, UK)
Pine Gap (Northern Territory, Australia - close to Alice Springs)  

Sabana Seca (Puerto Rico - U.S.)
Shoal Bay (Northern Territory, Australia)   Sugar Grove (West
Virginia, USA)
Yakima (Washington, U.S.)
Waihopai (New Zealand)
West Cape, Western Australia (Exmouth Gulf, Australia - U.S.)
