X-Files 2016 up to date with the science Ununpentium Element 115
X-Files is back and like past episodes and movies, creator Chris Carter always roots his science fiction in real science and popular conspiracy theories. After watching The X-Files “My Struggle” for a fifth time tonight, my geeky side got curious.
In a recent phone conference call, Chris Carter admitted he attended conventions and conferences filled with conspiracy theorists and that we would be amazed and surprised at the numerous Americans and the theories they hold dear.
Sounds like to many, X-Files is a documentary, not fiction.
But some of the science is real. Well at least based in real theories at least.
GARNER: It runs on .. so called zero point energy.
MULDER: Free energy?
O’MALLEY (Joel McHale): Available since the 1940s
The Zero Point Energy (ZPE) is an intrinsic and unavoidable part of quantum physics. The ZPE has been studied, both theoretically and experimentally, since the discovery of quantum mechanics in the 1920s and there can be no doubt that the ZPE is a real physical effect. SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN
Conspiracy Theories that Tesla discovered FREE self sustaining energy over 100 years ago have floated for years. The big oil companies have buried this in favor of trillions in oil sales, as pointed out by Mulder. CLICK HERE for one fear mongering report.

MULDER: Gravity Warp Drive, but how?
GARNER: Element 115. Ununpentium.
MULDER: Where did you get it?
Not that there really are ARVs out there, but Ununpentium Element 115 is real. In fact, just this past December 2015, it was recognized by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). So if you go back to college and take Chemistry, your periodic tables will soon need to be updated.
UUP, you know me!!
The element was named back in 1979 by the IUPAC.
The element was first synthetically created in 2003 by American and Russian teams. 4 atoms – I know its amazing – were created and gone in 100 milliseconds.
A number of scientific teams tried to recreate the experiments from 2003. In 2015 a team from Berkeley published they had successfully produced the element.
But with a half-life of only 220 milliseconds, Alien Replica Vehicles would need a lot of UUP and some very impressive alien technology to stabilize the highly radioactive element.
