The famous military facility in the Nevada desert has a rich history of secrecy. Missiles, aircraft, and numerous other weapons have been developed and tested there. In the 1950’s it was primarily used for flight testing of the Lockheed U-2 aircraft.
While it’s fun to maintain the illusion that aliens are freely roaming the grounds of Area 51, there’s no definitive evidence to suggest this is the case. Every few years a patron will claim extraterrestrial activity which always gets disproved as either a hoax or a simple misunderstanding.
Aliens aside, the mystique surrounding this barren area of land remains massive. Ever since President Eisenhower approved it to the Atomic Energy Commissions Nevada test site, conspiracy theory have run rampant. It’s like having an itch on your back that you can’t reach. You know it’s there but are unable to access it.
