In a new Insight article, Whitley Strieber contributes scanning electron microscope photographs of layered bismuth-magnesium material obtained from an unknown source by Art Bell in the 1990s and given to Linda Moulton Howe and Whitley Strieber. In 2018, TTSA obtained some of the material for analysis. Whitley reports that it was privately analyzed at Southwest Research in San Antonio by their then head of materials science, William Mallow. The analysis was not done on an official basis, but Dr. Mallow received permission to utilize the institute’s equipment.
Analysis under the scanning electron microscope revealed that the layered material consisted of alternating layers of bismuth and magnesium which did not appear to be remarkable in themselves. However, as the 600x magnification scan pictured here shows, there is nothing between the layers holding them together. This was judged to be anomalous, as there is no reason for the material to remain in this state without an adherent being present.
