Ninov is retired from physics. He lives in California. His wife, Caroline Cox, a former history professor at University of the Pacific, died in 2014 of cancer. They were married 29 years. Ninov helped finish her book, Boy Soldiers of the American Revolution, and it was published postmortem. He is an avid sailor, and pilots a four-seat plane.


Ninov, who had been placed on leave, was fired. The rest of Ninov's team officially retracted their claims in 2002. There was also an investigation conducted into Ninov's unsupervised science at GSI; it was found that "two sightings were spuriously created". However, very perplexingly, these false flags were found amongst lots of real data that still supported that his co-discoveries were still legitimate. It was the conclusion of the GSI investigation that "discovery of elements 111 and 112 still stands". At minimum it is certain that Victor Ninov made a "wrongful claim" about elements 118 and 116.


Ninov, again, held sole control of the data analysis program, and he was the only one on the team that knew how to use it. In 1999 Ninov and his team reported sightings of element 118, almost exactly as predicted, and a decay chain that also produced element 116. However, other laboratories were unable to reproduce the results.


He worked at Stanford University for a time. He was hired at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) in 1996 as a world class expert for particle accelerator debris sensors, and analysis programs.


Victor Ninov (Bulgarian: Виктор Нинов , born 1959) is a physicist and former researcher who worked primarily in creating heavy elements. He is known for the co-discoveries of elements 110, 111, and 112 and the alleged fabrication of the evidence used to claim the creation of elements 118 and 116.

Victor Ninov was born in Communist Bulgaria in 1959. He grew up in the capital city of Sofia. In the 1970s, when Ninov was a teenager, he and his family left for West Germany; they bounced around from house to house. Shortly after the move Victor's father went missing, and turned up dead six months later in the Bulgarian foothills due to causes unknown.
