In November of 2018, The Black Vault began pursuing records relating to the company United Nuclear, owned by Bob Lazar of “flying saucers at Area 51” fame. Whether his story behind seeing alien craft within Area 51 is true or not, his company United Nuclear does have an FBI file.
According to United Nuclear’s website:
“The purpose of United Nuclear Scientific (United Nuclear Scientific Supplies, LLC) is to once again make scientific equipment & supplies available to everyone. Currently, both private and public schools (as well as other learning institutions) have removed chemicals & glassware from their chemistry labs and electronic components from their engineering classes… along with many other important pieces of “hands-on” learning equipment. In addition, laboratory equipment, chemicals & supplies which were once widely available, are now difficult to find or no longer for sale. ‘Lab’ classes that used to offer hands-on experience with actual materials now have students conduct experiments on computer or simply read text instead of actually coming into contact with the equipment & materials they are learning about. Most professors & teachers we have spoken with completely disagree with this concept. It is our intention make these and other interesting/scientific related items once again available to the hobbyist, teacher and home experimenter, as well as professional and Government organizations.”
The motivation behind the request was the discussion of a raid in 2017 of United Nuclear, which was revealed on Jeremy Corbell‘s documentary “Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers.” However, in the files of United Nuclear, the FBI denies that within the FBI files on United Nuclear are records pertaining to the 2017 raid. According to local police records received about the incident, the FBI is referenced, so theoretically, there should be.
Although The Black Vault has another case open specifically for documents pertaining to this raid, it is unclear why a raid of United Nuclear, which had FBI involvement, would not exist in the FBI file filed under United Nuclear. It is possible, for whatever reason, the raid files are listed under records pertaining to Bob Lazar himself, and not under United Nuclear, which if true would require a waiver signed by Lazar in order to access the files.
Multiple attempts by The Black Vault over the years to contact Lazar never received a response.
You will also note that the above e-mail reference shows there are more than 1,000 pages total. In the course of negotiating, The Black Vault reduced the scope of the request in order to get records quicker. However, a new case was filed for the rest, and likely will take a considerable time to receive. This page will be updated when that case completes, but until then, here is what was declassified and released:
