I do not believe there is any validity to Bob White's artifact,
not because of the Skeptic magazine article but because there
is no chemical evidence supporting the contention that the
object is extraterrestrial.

I read the Skeptic article and it was quite worthless. Stating
an object was a piece of Al slag because it "looks" like a piece
of Al slag is hardly science.

There were several different laboratories that tested the object
but none of the test results were conclusive. I spent many hours
reviewing each report that was provided me. Isotope analysis
using a HR-ICPMS needed to be done; the same type of work that
is done on some meteorites. After getting agreement from a
state-of-the-art lab to analyze the object and getting an
agreement from MUFON to pay for the project, it all fell apart
when the owners of the object insisted on UFO Hunters coming
into the laboratory and filming everything. No laboratory is
going to allow that when you have to work in a class-100 area
that requires special garments and no lab is going to want to be
on an episode of UFO Hunters. So that killed the opportunity to
properly analyze the sample. It is difficult to understand how
someone who believed they had a true ET artifact would insist on
bringing in UFO Hunters.
