Roswell UFO Technology
Computer company chief
Jack Shulman argues that the transistor could never have been
invented so suddenly at AT&T in late 1947 without input from top
secret Government projects, that some have identified to him as being
from alien spacecraft.

"Hi, I'm Jack Shulman. I'm the head of the
American Computer Company. American Computer Company is part of the
Technology International Group and Bell North America group of
companies. I'm also one of the owners of the group of companies. I've
been in the computer industry for about 28 or 29 years. I've worked
for IBM as a professional services management consultant. I worked on
the development of the personal computer in 1978 for FIT [Fashion
Institute of Technology] and Simplicity Patterns, later adopted by
IBM. I developed something called the "pattern creator". That's where
we got the term "PC". Prior to that, I'd developed what you might
call the first windowing operating system in 1975 for Citibank, and
before that there were earlier versions I did for a company called
Vydec. I'm a serious computer person - very, very serious - and also
someone who's not generally inclined to leap to great predispositions
about any unusual subject.
Well, as it turns out, a few years ago I got my
dose of reality. It was in the form of a visit from a friend of mine.
When I was very young I'd got involved in technology, partly by
virtue of the influence of a friend's father. I grew up in central
New Jersey, which is around where AT&T and Bell Labs originated,
and my friend's father was the head of Bell Labs. I ended up at a
private school and ended up living at the household of the head of
Bell Labs, going to that private school and going to college with his
son as a roommate, and I kind of grew up around the various projects
at Bell Laboratories in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
I'd always held out that AT&T was this rather
magnificent institution. Anybody here worked for AT&T in the
past? So, you know when I say Bell Labs research, I'm speaking Holy
Grail; and in certain parts of the defence community and in
government I'm also speaking Holy Grail. Anyone here realise that
AT&T and Bell Laboratories ran our nuclear arsenal for 45 years?
Anybody who knows that, raise your hand. Not a one of you. I didn't
really even know until a little bit later in my career, but I knew
something strange was going on because it always seemed to me that
AT&T always had what it needed to make innovations in technology,
and subsequently such technology would migrate to an IBM or a Sarnoff
Research or to an RCA.
And I could never really figure out, in the course
of my young life, who were these magnificent, incredible scientists,
other than that I frequently met them...like a fellow by the name of
William Shockley. He was quite a frequent friend to Jack Morton's
household, and I knew him, and I knew some of the other folks that he
knew, like a fellow by the name of - well, I guess not too many
people would know him - Bob Noyce, and Jack Kilby who was an
acquaintance of theirs, and so forth. These names, if you've ever
worked for AT&T or in the electronics industry, are also Holy
Grail names. These are Mount Rushmores of the technology industry.
Jack Kilby is credited with the invention of the integrated
I was rather shocked when, about late 1995, a dear
friend came to me. He was at one time one of the very well known
generals in the Pentagon, a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and
is now a consultant. I'd known him a very long time through the
Morton family and Bell and when working for IBM. He asked me to
analyse some documents that he had in his possession. He showed me
some pictures. I kind of turned up my nose. I said, "I don't believe
this." He suggested they were pictures of an alien craft. I said to
him, "Well, why do you come to me and ask me this?" "Because there
are some documents that fell into my possession that I would also
like you to see, that go beyond these drawings, these pictures, these
photographs, that describe some technology; and I would like you to
analyse this technology and make a determination for me of the
veracity of these documents, help me to authenticate them." I said,
"Fine. I don't believe this is real. I'm sceptical. I don't believe
in aliens, I don't believe in UFOs, I don't believe in any of that."
And he said, "Okay, well, I'd still want you to take a look at them,
Jack." And I agreed.
I met with him at his home. I met a woman by the
name of Mrs Jeffrey Proscauer. That's not her real name, but it's the
name she goes by; she does not want her true identity revealed. And I
got a chance to piece and look through some 28 boxes of materials
that had come from Western Electric Laboratories in the late 1940s,
1947, early 1948 and beyond, and some subsequent documents.
Now again, if you've ever worked for AT&T, you
know that the laboratories at Bell Laboratories are often quite
distinct, and the documentation from a laboratory is kept in an
ongoing, growing tome called a "Lab Shopkeeper's Notebook". It turns
out that even in the super-secret laboratories, the ones in the part
of Western Electric or Bell Laboratories that manage the nuclear
arsenal, these notebooks are kept, and they grow and they're ongoing
and they become almost like a living representation of what that
laboratory did for a living.
Well, such as it is, I was rather shocked at what
I had to see there in these boxes of materials, and I convinced them
to let me look at them over the course of about three-and-a-half
weeks. They were kept at the consultant's house during that time
period, and he actually kept a security guard with them at all times
because he was afraid that someone might come and steal them. Now of
course, I wasn't sure why he was afraid, because at the time I didn't
realise the full magnitude of what I was looking at.
In any event, after about two or three weeks of
looking at them, I came back to him and we sat down over what turned
out to be a Christmas Eve dinner, and I said to him: "I've got to
tell you something. I'm having a real problem with this because what
you're showing me looks like technology that we have not yet
developed, that humanity has not yet developed, yet the documents
you're showing me appear to be forty-eight, forty-nine years old.
This would put them in 1947, 1948, 1949."
I suggested to him that before I could proceed I
would have to have someone verify the age, carbon-date or come up
with some other means to verify the age of the documents, and he
agreed. So, with the help of a mutual acquaintance - a private
investigator formerly with the Justice Department - we were able to
take fragments of the documents without damaging them.
We sent them to an expert who formerly consulted
for Scotland Yard; he's a fairly well known forensic expert at...I
believe it's the University of Edinburgh in Scotland today; he was at
a different university at the time. He analysed these fragments of
these documents for me, and came back and told me that the ink, the
paper, even the presentations were valid; that this was in fact a
book or series of books from the 1947, '48, '49, 1950 time period.
That took him about four and a half weeks of analysis, and I was for
four and a half weeks, as you can imagine, holding my breath.
The things that I saw described in this Lab
Shopkeeper's Notebook consisted of things that today would be more
powerful than the Intel Pentium processor, for instance, or the Cray
supercomputer. There were communications devices that were described;
there were ways to sandwich-in very, very thin, micrometre-thin
layers; special metals to produce moving parts for things like...from
the descriptions that I read, the nearest thing I could describe...an
anti-gravity propulsion unit for a spacecraft. They included dynamic
electronic and power-control technology that even to this day we have
not yet developed. They included communications technology that was
described only as having been taken from an object of unknown or
unearthly origin. The documents were very carefully worded not to
reveal what was, in reality, in these boxes of materials.
I was sort of at a loss at that juncture, because
even though we had forensic information at the time from this
particular forensic expert that would date these boxes back to the
late '40s, and even though they said "Western Electric, Bell
Laboratories", part of them said something called "Z-Division" on
them. We knew of the Z-Division: it was a segment of the United
States Army, formed in 1947 and 1948. The implications were that this
project was operating on the fringes of the nuclear bomb development
project - then known as the Manhattan Project Group.
It turns out that in 1947 - between '47 and
actually late '48 - Harry Truman decided he was going to grant a
contract to AT&T to go through the overseeing and management of
our nuclear arsenal and the commercialisation of derived product
technologies from the nuclear bomb, from the bomb project: the
physics, the electronics, the control systems, even the ballistics,
the radar that was used, the ICBM technology that was under
development in the late '40s after we got a hold of the V-series
rockets from the Nazis, and so forth. The contract was inked by
Truman in early 1949, if I recall correctly, but during the prior
two-year period there was an informal relationship, during which
AT&T played a greater and greater role in the organisation of
super-secret military weapons-grade projects for the federal
government and eventually got pretty much control of what was then
known as the Z-Division.
Z-Division, believe it or not, originated in
Roswell, New Mexico. I guess the reason is, that is where the
original nuclear bomb armada was formed - the first bomber wing that
carried the nuclear bomb - and it migrated over to Kirtland Air Force
Base during the time period when Orlando Lawrence, the Lawrence
Berkeley Laboratories fellow, was called in. He was called in by
Teller, Oppenheimer...all those folks responsible for the nuclear
bomb...Leo Szwilard. Lawrence was called in at the time because he
could make accelerators, or "cyclotrons" as they were known at the
time. Those cyclotrons were capable of refining uranium, refining
plutonium...well, actually, back then, they weren't working with
plutonium but with uranium.
I guess you could imagine what it must have been
like in the time period. They were in the middle of a war when they
were building the nuclear bombs and they had to do everything
secretly, so this Z-Division was created with super-secrecy as its
Ultimately Lawrence was called in because they had
to build enough of an accelerator to refine enough uranium to make
the bomb possible, and, in spite of all the greatest minds of nuclear
physics assigned to the Z-Division in the Manhattan Project, none of
them could figure out how to refine enough uranium to make the
nuclear bomb a possibility. This was before the first bomb was
exploded. So Lawrence was brought in because he knew how to make a
cyclotron; but his cyclotron, the biggest one he'd ever created, was
about the size of this white board over here, and it could produce
about a thimbleful of refined uranium - which would have been about
enough to make a nuclear bomb capable of blowing off your left
In any event, Lawrence one day is called in and
he's asked: "How do we build a cyclotron big enough?" He makes a few
calculations and hands a requisition order to Harold Ackerman - today
a federal judge, and who was the chief supply clerk for the Manhattan
Project - to requisition enough silver to build a big silver
racetrack; something like 12 million tons of silver. In fact, he took
it to the United States Treasury, handed it to the then Secretary of
the Treasury - I guess it was Morganthal - and Morganthal was asked
to fill a 12-million-ton order, which also necessitated the
relocation of Z-Division to some place where they could put all this
silver and build this racetrack.
We decided one day at American Computer Company
that we were going to be brave. I talked with my board and I talked
with some of the people at the company and they agreed. "Yeah, we can
try this; let's see what happens."
We decided that we were going to take the story
that had been conveyed to me about this unusual Shopkeeper's Notebook
with these unusual technological artifacts in them, and naively and
blithely put a panel on the Internet, describing in black and white
and colour what we had found, and raise the question. However, the
picture that we put up was a picture of Testor's model of the
so-called Roswell Lander. It's a picture of what looks like a
spacecraft with wings and a jet propulsion system, with a pod in the
front to hold alien occupants who were piloting it. We superimposed
the picture over an image from the Thunder Range - of course, we
picked the wrong place; the Plains of San Agustin was the right
place, actually - and we put a little bit of rhetoric on this panel
and just placed it right in the middle of our American Computer
Now that probably was the stupidest thing we ever
did. Here's this picture of a Roswell alien lander sitting on a panel
in the middle of a computer company website, and on it it said
something like: "Did AT&T receive stolen alien technologies from
the US Government in 1947 and thereby invent the transistor, the
laser, the integrated circuit, and...on and on and on...different
technologies?" Well, we figured the reaction we would get from the
public would be one of, "Oh gee, isn't that cute? That's funny,
X-Files, you know..." The reaction we got was not one we had
Three days after we placed the image onto our
website, we received a very strange series of military faxes to our
tech support fax machine, referring to a piece of hardware known as
"Sky Station". Anybody ever hear of anything called Sky Station?
Never heard of it, have you? Well, it's up there. It's an orbital
platform of some kind. We were receiving live messages from Sky
Station for a day or two and we decided this wasn't right; we were
going to call the Pentagon and tell them about it.
So I picked up the phone and first I called Fort
Monmouth; then I called down to Langley Air Force Base. They wanted
to know, "Why are you calling Langley Air Force Base?" Well, where
else would I call about a satellite that's sending messages to our
fax machine...talk about sounding strange...that say this satellite
is about to crash, it's coming down, its communications systems are
breaking down. Well, finally we got to somebody who was of authority.
It was Colonel James that we got to, and he gets on the phone with
me...I'm in my car, on my car phone...and he says: "Mr Shulman,
please secure these faxes. Do not let anyone see them. We'll take
care of it. We'll let you know what to do with the faxes." It's
like...the military goes silent.
That next day our offices were broken into. Our
front door was smashed, our glass was smashed to smithereens all over
the place, and everything was taken out of the file cabinets in our
offices. My office was a wreck when I got in there. It was awful. We
came in the next day to work and it was like: what happened, what
I had these faxes in my briefcase. I'd taken them
with me, home. So apparently, by not leaving them there, I probably
worsened the situation. It might have been better if I'd left them
there, to be frank; if they'd found them and had just come and
arrested us, taken us away. They were top level, five-level
clearance. We're not supposed to even see or even know such a thing,
but inadvertently, as a result, we became aware of the fact that
there's an orbital DSP [Defense Space Platform], called Sky Station,
which is nuclear-hardened and equipped to carry nuclear weapons,
because it was described in these faxes.
It is not a very pleasant place to be, to discover
that now, here we are at the end of the Cold War with an agreement
that there will be no nuclear weapons in space in orbit, and there is
apparently a platform up there that the United States secretly put up
back in the '60s or '70s or '80s, that's equipped; it's
nuclear-hardened, it's one of the Star Wars SDI series, based on
Spacelab, equipped to handle and carry nuclear weapons.
So now, not only did we have a picture of an
alleged alien craft on our website, talking about alien technologies
being transferred to AT&T, but we also were in possession of very
high level, Level Five, Top Secret security clearance military faxes
describing something called Sky Station.
That week we had visits from the Air Force Office
of Special Investigations. They came up and they interviewed us. They
put me through a day-long third degree. We didn't want it happening
in the middle of our customers coming in and seeing us or selling
personal computers and servers, so I took them to an out-of-the-way
part of the office, down the hall, down the elevator to a little
office downstairs, and I got a query about everything just short
of...well, it included my shoe size, when I was born, names of
parents, names of grandparents, when they entered the country,
driver's licence number. They went through a Q&A with me and with
my staff, that just came short of asking me the wrong question - if
you know what I mean.
We were very startled, naturally. We weren't
certain what in fact was going on, but we're not ones to back down at
American Computer so we decided that instead of running for cover and
taking the picture down off of our website...because we kind of
connected that the two things might have something to do with each
other...instead of backing down and turning it all off, we would go
the other direction. So we moved the picture to a separate section of
our website and created an entire website within our website, called
American Computer Company Special Investigation. This is what happens
when you grow up in New Jersey! Of course, we couldn't have rubbed
salt into a deeper wound: "Some have claimed that alien technology
was found on board a UFO crashed in Roswell, 1947. Very dramatic. Is
it true? Did the US military discover something strange in the desert
near Albuquerque, New Mexico? Did they alter human history? Was the
transistor one of those alien marvels? Click here for the original
We tried to be a little cute. We put up a picture,
and if you go to our website it's still there. If you go to our main
website, http://accpc.com, at the bottom of the page is a nav bar
with a pointer in the middle of the corporate info products,
catalogue, features, tech support, Roswell 1947, help. You can go to
that link and click on it and it'll take you to this special page
which, of course, has now grown tremendously. It has something like,
we estimate, about 9,000 messages and articles now stored within it.
We started off on one Internet server and moved it to five Internet
servers, and now we are on one of our super-servers which consists of
four groups of four Pentium XEONs and three different
service-provider carriers and a whole lot of communications just to
handle the load.
We get about, we estimate, three million to three
and a half million visitors a month to the site. And they're not
necessarily people like yourselves, open-minded, interested; they're
kids from college, kids from high schools, military people from
countries like Iran...I'm serious! I mean, we can track some of the
addresses that show up in our logs. I didn't even know Iran had
Internet! We've got a very strange reaction to our story.
What we did in the story was we isolated a few
pointers, some of which only I was privy to. One of them was that
there was some relationship between the government and AT&T that
resulted in the transistor's invention. I mentioned I grew up in the
household of the head of Bell Labs, so I knew that there was
something strange about the transistor because I knew Bill Shockley,
and Bill Shockley was something of a witless buffoon. There's no way
he could have invented the transistor.
The symbol for the transistor is made up of three
pieces: positive, positive and negative; or negative, negative and
positive...silicon dioxide doped with arsenic and boron, in 1947.
Now, in 1947, doping things with boron was not easy. It required the
sort of equipment that even Bell Labs in 1946 did not possess. They
had this type of equipment at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratories - but it
would have taken thousands and thousands and thousands of man-hours
to invent the transistor.
If you look back at it historically, what AT&T
was claiming was that one day this "genius", William Shockley, was
working with a rectifier; he looked at it and he noticed it had
unusual propensities, and there, bingo, he invented the transistor!
He figured it out right there! And to verify that, the two other
"geniuses" that they got to help work on the transistor, Dr Bardeen
and Dr Brattain, both said: "Oh yeah, I remember a guy by the name of
Case was [allegedly] talking about transistors in 1931, and I knew
back then we were going to have them."
That is the history of the transistor at AT&T
prior to 1948, other than claiming it was invented in December of
1947 by Dr Shockley. Anybody believe that story? Me neither. And I
knew, because the administrative head of the transistor project was
Jack Morton - the man at whose house I was staying to go to school
and whose sons I was friends with - and he often commented on the
fact that it was really a shame that those three idiots got
responsibility for the transistor and he didn't. And I always
wondered, because he too didn't possess the scientific ability to
develop the transistor. He was a brilliant man who had invented the
radiobroadcast vacuum tube, the close-spaced triode, but it appears
as if he was brought in to head up the project to try to draw back
the transistor in time to radio tubes and the things that Shockley
talked about; and it was as if the whole thing was just a ploy and he
might as easily have been given responsibility and got the Nobel
Prize as Bill Shockley. Professional jealousy?
In any event, for most of my young life I believed
that the transistor had come from a government project and that they
were just hiding its origins. Which government project, I did not
realise until I saw the Shopkeeper's Notebook in the possession of my
friend, the consultant.
Now, I'd heard a lot about Roswell in my life and
I'd read the Project Blue Book books and I'd read a lot of books like
Berlitz's books and so forth, but I was not someone who believed in
Roswell, who believed that a UFO had crashed at Roswell at the time,
in any event. There I was, stuck with all this information and having
created this rather minor scandal on the Internet...well, maybe not
minor, with the Air Force coming to visit us.
Next thing I know, radio talk show host Art Bell
sends science reporter Linda Moulton Howe to my office. She has to be
there because she has to see whether or not our offices were actually
broken into. A beautiful woman, very intelligent...she shows up at
the office with a tape recorder. I'm exhausted...the weeks have been
going not so good lately, and we're still picking up the pieces of
glass out of the sofas in the lobby. She sees the windows are broken
in the front and we have a wooden partition set up to try to keep the
air out of the building, and she records me answering questions about
all this. I try to be as vague as I can and answer the questions
about what's going on here, and she talks about the story. And next
thing I know, she plays the tape on "Dreamland", on Art's show. I
swear to God, it was the strangest thing we had ever seen
That very next day we got well over 3,000 phone
calls from people all trying to get in to see me personally; they had
to come to see me personally, to tell me about Roswell. We received
mail and e-mail by the 10,000 pieces. Our normal 2,000 visitors a day
on our World Wide Web site jumped up so high that one of our carriers
refused to carry us anymore.
At that point I realised there's more than just a
casual interest on the part of the public, so we decided we would
carry the original ACC Roswell story right through to its ultimate
conclusion. We have been for several years now.
So, we have publicised the fact that Dr Morton met
his untimely death and that Dr Morton was one of the few people who
knew the true history of the transistor at AT&T - aside from Bill
Shockley who would never have talked because that would have meant
the end of his Nobel Prize, along with Drs Bardeen and Brattain, and
Dr Kilby who subsequently went on to bigger and better things, and
he's dead now.
It looked like Dr Morton was breaking camp with
AT&T and was very, very outspoken, very angry with AT&T over
this whole thing. Professional jealousy, I guess. One day in 1972, Dr
Morton was found knocked unconscious and set afire in his Volvo P18
sports coupé, devastating the Morton household and family - my
friends - and for reasons that nobody seemed to know.
Well, we decided to see whether or not there might
be any link, any reason to link Dr Morton's possible migration to a
Japanese firm, and we tried to make an inquiry about it with the
corporate security department at AT&T. That's when we discovered
that there are people working in corporate security at AT&T who
don't want to talk about Dr Morton's untimely death. Now, you've got
to understand, we're talking about something which happened 25 years
So we were investigating further, and I
interviewed a member of the Morton household who was talking about
the transistor project and got very, very teary-eyed when I talked
about the transistor. I said, "Oh, did you ever wonder where the
transistor really came from?" It was as if I had cut a jugular. The
conversation ended right there. "Can't discuss this further with
We looked into it a little bit further and it
became clear to us that Dr Morton was probably responsible for this
Shopkeeper's Notebook working its way outside of AT&T - probably,
because he was the principal investigator. Everybody knows what a
principal investigator is. Involved in any government project you
have a principal investigator. They have to name somebody to take the
blame. When AT&T screws up, they have to have someone to fire,
and they're certainly not going to pick someone important enough in
their view; they're going to pick the one that everybody doesn't
like. He was a tough guy; very, very strong-minded; and everybody
didn't like him that much, so they made him the principal
There were other people involved, apparently.
There was a fellow by the name of Ramey. He was a figure at the
Department of the Army. He was named in the documents. There were
quite a few other people named in the documents. We're not revealing
all of the people at this particular juncture because of Mrs
Proscauer who won't allow us to give out certain things. And in order
to continue on an ongoing basis having access to these documents and
so-called Notebook, we're very cautious about the information we give
In any event, we decided to depict in a series of
pages on the Internet the entirety of the story of what we'd been
going through, going on the theory that one of the ways you can
protect yourself from, for instance, being assassinated by having
information in your possession that's dangerous to others, is to
publicise it as widely as you possibly can - which is what we did. Of
course, there's a certain drawback to that approach. The drawback was
that within no time the attacks, the onslaughts, the assaults, the
death threats, the credibility attacks, the undermining of
credibility, the public humiliation, pain and suffering began.
We found ourselves besieged by what I can only
describe as a multilateral black project, which included death
threats on myself and my family, death threats on our employees,
pictures of me with bullet holes and blood dripping out, on the
Internet, out of the blue...a really, really strange thing to have
happen. We had people come up and claim they had been hired by us to
verify the claims that technology like this originated on an alien
And you've got to understand, we didn't say that
it originated on an alien spacecraft. We asked the question, "Did it
originate...?" Would you run around on the Internet saying this
technology came from an alien spacecraft? No. You'd ask the question.
You'd say, "Let's put together the evidence; let's find out."
We decided we would approach a higher authority,
ask the question to the higher authority and make it a matter of
public record. So, who is a higher authority, other than, say, Bill
Clinton, that you might go to to ask the question: Did the transistor
and subsequent technologies fall into the hands of AT&T from the
Nazi Germans, the Japanese? Well, neither of them had any of this
stuff. Secret government project? Well, the United States Government
couldn't build any of this stuff. Half this stuff that we saw in the
Notebook...even today we don't even have some of the minerals, some
of the chemical materials, necessary to create them.
We decided we would ask the Secretary of Defense,
William Cohen. In fact, we got William Cohen and then his
administrative assistant on the phone, and the head of the Air Force
OSI instantly on the phone with us, and sent them a kit and kaboodle
of stuff to take a look at. We asked them to come down, take a look
at things that we wanted explained in their original context. Well,
we've never heard from them about it. We haven't heard from the Air
Force or OSI - we filed OSI 9001 pages, demands, with them. We've
never heard a single word back from the OSI, the Air Force, the
Pentagon. They've kept their distance, accepted the requested
requests and violated the law, because under the law, when you give
them these demands, they have 30 days to respond. Not a single
response. As if to say, "You're not influential enough to get us to
respond to these."
In any event, we got nowhere with them so we
decided we might embarrass them a little bit. Now, how do you
embarrass the Air Force? I mean, sometimes they do a pretty good job
of embarrassing themselves! But how do you embarrass the Air Force,
how do you embarrass William Cohen, the Secretary of Defense,
particularly in a time period when we're in the middle of an ersatz
situation of war with Iraq, when the Cold War is over? You publish
your findings; you have to have findings.
I was invited to appear a total of 15 times on
radio shows, including Art Bell again, Sightings, the Mike Jarmus
Show, ABC News, and finally I turned down the Larry King Live show.
I'd just about had enough. I was on ABC News, though, about three
We built two of the devices we saw in the Lab
Shopkeeper's Notebook. One of them was a semiconductor device. This
semiconductor device we called the "Transfer Capacitor", and it has
actually shocked the industry. People called me "lunatic" and "liar"
and every conceivable name in the book for a period of 11 months as
we described the transfer capacitor's unusual capability. It can be
made about the size of a molecule, it can be controlled by microvolts
of electricity, it produces no heat and it switches at 12
Does anyone know what a terahertz is? Intel
Pentium's transistors switch at 500 megahertz or some small multiple
thereabouts. This thing is 12,000 times faster than the fastest
transistors we've ever built. We tested it. We actually went out and
got some silver alkane from a company in Pennsylvania that makes
semiconductor materials. We built one, we tested it. We then realised
that we could build it very dense.
We got some friends who operated a company called
InMos, who had some semiconductor materials, and over six months -
this is two years ago - we built an 8-gigabyte solid-state hard drive
in a space about 'yay' big...poker-chip-sized...operating at the same
speed, 12 terahertz, capable of replacing the memory of a PC. We
subsequently built 2,500 of them and sent them out in the form of
test kits for people in industry to evaluate - people who refused to
believe that such a thing could exist. We sent them to Rohm &
Haas; we sent them to Intel. We got some of them back. People didn't
even want to look at them: "What is this nonsense?" Motorola wouldn't
take one, interestingly. Texas Instruments took one.
In any event, for six months I had to put up with
some of the most obnoxious, insulting, nasty comments you could
imagine, even when I was at meetings of my own professional
conferences. "The crazy alien guy with his flying-saucer transistor"
- that was typical.
Ultimately what bailed us out was that a friend of
mine who used to work for IBM, now for Lucent, managed to convince
his private funding agency to give Lawrence Berkeley Laboratories a
grant to check us out at ACC. He picked Lawrence Berkeley because
they probably have the highest integrity of all the physics
laboratories in the world - the ones who had the 10,000-foot
racetrack, made out of 12 million tons of silver, that in 1947 must
have knocked Henry Morganthal right out of his leather chair when it
was requested. They tested using the same procedures, but they had a
much better laser than we did. We only had a little laser at
Princeton. They had a big laser with which they could watch the
movement of electrons, and they verified not only the function but
the speed. So, Lucent managed to double-check our work, even though
it won't officially admit it.
What the "T-cap" or Transfer Capacitor really is,
is a metal-insulated dielectric junction semiconductor based on
silver alkane. It works on the principle whereby electrons strike the
bond in question, elevate its energy level and, boom, what was an
insulator becomes a conductor in a half of a millionth of a billionth
of a second! Very fast! It persists for about two thousandths of
those millionths of a billionths of a second and turns itself off. We
use two of them in a pair, one to refresh the other, and they nearly
never lose any electrons. Once we charge them up, they stay charged
for an hour. So we only need a tiny bit of power to power them. They
produce no heat. We can't measure heat from these things because the
heat, if it were there, is absorbed back into the substance, the
silver alkane, because of its unusual propensities.
Now, everyone who has ever owned a PC knows how
much heat today's computer microprocessors generate. It's unearthly!
And the faster they get, the more heat they generate. The power they
consume is being turned into heat, like a toaster oven. That's why
people call PCs "video toasters". This thing, if it were used to
replace the transistors, the 130 million or so throughout your PC,
would produce no heat. Instead of consuming 150 watts, it would
probably consume one-thousandth of a watt. And it's been sitting on
the shelves for nearly 50 years!
In any event, we've got this story, and 9,000
messages and news items about it. Really strange things and people
that come on: a fellow by the name of Wang on the private alleged web
identities of two very public figures; fraudulent publications about
ACC; hackers who hack into our website.
If you go to our website and read through it,
you'll be truly amazed. You'll be stunned, you'll be shocked. You
will also walk away no longer a sceptic, if you were. If you're
someone who believed, you will now see what I call "third party
circumstantial evidence" that verifies that something very unusual
happened in New Mexico in 1947.
We recently received, courtesy of the Russian
Federation, a transcript of a statement on the subject by Leonid
Alexiev. Leonid Alexiev, a Russian General, chaired a blue-ribbon
committee to look into this in 1997, when it was brought to their
attention when Bill Clinton went to Russia and some students stood up
and said, "We saw this website called American Computer, and there it
was said that the Defense Department has a UFO in the United States.
Is this true, Mr Clinton?" Bill got up and said, "I don't know. No,
no, it's not true. But wait a minute. I tried to ask the Defense
Department, but they wouldn't tell me."
In any event, the Russians decided to put together
this committee, and I don't know if they spent the millions of
dollars on our account; they might have. They sent us a copy of the
transcript of the report by Alexiev, which was also carried on The
Learning Channel, TLC, last week. The Russians have decided there's
an alien presence in our solar system, based on all the evidence, on
these things they've examined.
They've somehow got a hold of pictures of our
transcapacitor from our lab. I don't know how, because we've never
taken any. Leave it to the Russians! The KGB doesn't exist anymore;
it's called the MSB now, right? And Alexiev has gone public, as have
the Russians, and as a result of his report he has now been appointed
by...what's the name of the head of the Russian Republic, the drunken
guy? Yeltsin...Boris has appointed him head of the Russian Space
As an aside, we thought we would solicit a few
senators' opinions. We solicited the offices of Senator Kennedy -
another man who likes the glass of wine occasionally. In any event,
we got a very strange reaction from the office of Senator Kennedy.
They sent us a folio about a study that was done on funding, that was
publicised by the Senator's office. In the middle of it they had
yellowed out a section that talked about the deep space probe series
that NASA is sending out - the Deep Space 1. I think they're naming
them after that Star Trek show, Deep Space 9. When they get to nine,
I don't know what they'll do!
In any event, Deep Space 3 or Deep Space 4 is
slated to receive a piece of equipment called a "laser cannon". At
Lincoln Labs there's a funded project afoot to develop, on a rush
basis, an offensive weapon based on laser technology, because
wherever this deep-space probe is going, they believe they need it.
Deep space is the space outside of the solar system, or at the
extreme ends of the solar system.
Apparently Senator Kennedy was one of the
sponsors, but the senators and congressmen do not hold the same
opinion as the Defense Department and the Air Force about whether
there's an alien presence in or right outside of our solar
So, right now, that's about where we're up to.
We're starting to commercialise the transfer capacitor and look at
partners; we're going to get it out there. We figured, why not? We've
spent so much money on the research investigation, we might as well
see if we can sell these things to people.
British Telecom has jumped in and stated they've
placed a letter-of-intent order with us. They're using it in a
product they call the "Soul Catcher" chip [see Global News, NEXUS
3/06, Oct-Nov 1996]. We've had some preliminary discussions
with a company called Shipley, the world's largest manufacturer of
We've had discussions with Intel, IBM. Just in the
last few months, a guy from IBM said, "You should have been dealing
with us all along." "Well, why didn't you come to us?" "Well, I'm
coming to you now." "There are a lot of people who are interested."
"Well, we're IBM." "So? You had these in your lab all along and
couldn't get them to work!"
We're not sure what direction it's all going to go
in, but I just wanted to end with this. This morning, as I was going
up in the elevator, I felt like I was hanging upside down, holding
the world up with my feet. The next time you get in the elevator out
there, think about that. That's how we feel at ACC."
