Inside The Space Craft
The interior of the disc is divided into three levels. The lower level is where the three
gravity amplifiers and their wave guides are located. These are the integral components of the
propulsion system that are used to amplify and focus the gravity A wave.
The Reactor is located directly above the three gravity amplifiers on the center level and is in
fact centered between them. The reactor is a closed system which uses the Element 115 as its
fuel. The element is also the source of the gravity-A wave which is amplified for space/time
distortion and travel.
The Center level of the disc also houses the control consoles and seats, both of which were too
small and too low to the floor to be functional for adult human beings. The walls of the center
level are all divided into archways. At one point in time, when the disc was energized, one of
the archways became transparent and you could see the area outside of it just as if the archway
was a window.
When Lazar was shown the disc, something incredible happened, of which current technology could
not produce. A form of writing which was unlike any alphabetic, scientific, or mathematical
symbols Lazar had ever seen, began to appear on the one side of the transparent archway. Lazar
was never given access to the upper level of the disc so what the porthole-like areas are can't
be illustrated, but they're definitely not portholes.
The power source is a reactor which uses Element 115 as its fuel. In this reactor Element 115 is
used as a target and is bombarded with protons in a small, highly sophisticated particle
accelerator. When a proton fuses into the nucleus of an atom of Element 115, it is transmuted
and becomes an atom of Element 116. Although we too can transmute elements here on earth, it is
typically not done in this fashion, or at anywhere near this level of efficiency. As soon as
each atom of 115 is transmuted into 116, it immediately decays and produces a radiation unlike
that which we normally observe in nuclear decay. Each atom of Element 116 decays and releases
two antiprotons (anti-hydrogen), a form of antimatter. Antimatter can be produced in particle
accelerators here on earth, but only in minute quantities and only stored for short periods of
The flux of antimatter particles produced in the reactor are channeled down an evacuated, tuned
tube (which keeps it from contacting with the matter that surrounds it) and reacted with a
gaseous matter target. This Total Annihilation reaction is the most efficient and energetic
nuclear reaction there is. The more familiar nuclear reactions are Fission, producing energy
from the splitting of atoms as used in nuclear reactors & atomic bombs, and Fusion, the fusing
or combining of atoms (typically hydrogen nuclei) to release even more energy. Fusion is the
reaction that powers the sun and other stars and is what gives hydrogen bombs their "punch".
These two more common nuclear reactions are dwarfed by the power and efficiency of the
annihilation reaction used in the alien reactor.
The reaction between the gaseous matter target and the antimatter particles produces a
release of tremendous amounts of heat. This heat is converted directly into electricity by the
use of a thermionic Generator. The Thermeonic generator used in this reactor is so efficient,
that there is no detectable waste heat produced. This is an apparent violation of one of the
basic laws of thermodynamics. Similar, but not nearly as efficient or powerful, thermionic
generators are used as power sources in our satellites and space probes.
As amazing and efficient as all this seems, it is only secondary to the primary function of the
reactor. The antiparticle flux emitted from the transmuting Element 115 is not the only energy
radiated during operation. This is the point at which the gravity A wave is first produced. The
gravity wave emitted by the 115 reaction appears on the hemisphere of the reactor, propagating
up the tuned waveguide in a fashion very similar to the way microwaves behave.
All of the actions and reactions inside the reactor are orchestrated perfectly like a tiny
little ballet, and in this manner, the reactor provides an enormous amount of power used to
amplify the gravity A wave so it can cause the requisite space/time distortion for space travel.
