No Aliens! http://www.theatlanticwire.com/national/2013/08/government-now-admits-theres-area-51/68389/

Newly declassified documents, obtained by George Washington University's National Security Archive, appear to for the first time acknowledge the existence of Area 51. Hundreds of pages describe the genesis of the Nevada site that was home to the government's spy plane program for decades. The documents do not, however, mention aliens.



Sort of Interesting.

Everybody in the entire world, including the Russians, knew there was an Area 51 when it was being built.

The Ruskies had spy satellites too,.more than likely before the Americans did, since the old CCCP were in space first.


All that nonsense about Alien activity and captured Alien spacecraft is total rubbish and the property of rumour-mongers and gullible scientific freaks. Area 51 is and always has been a testing ground for prototype future designs of US aeronautical and weapons technology. Sorry fellas, no little green men,  just a secret test complex.

Yes, and then after we develope this technology in total area 51 secrecy, we proceed to give it away to our strategic adversarys.

We allow an advanced drone to fall into the hands of Iran (by accident) and make no attempt to destroy it.

We allow an advanced stealth helicopter to fall into the hands of Packistan (by accident), make no attempt to destroy it, and it is promptly shipped to our "friends" the Chinese.

We allow Boeing corporation to give the Chinese our advanced technology to build components for their aircraft, (on purpose).

Then we allow Loral corporation to GIVE the Chinese the design for the laser ring gyroscope that gives our MX ICBM's their phenominal accuracy, just so they can have better luck launching their communication sattelites, (on purpose).

And those are just a few examples, suffice it to say, that  when history is written on how our "leaders" have squandered American technology the last few decades, it will not be a very inspiring story.

Ah, yes, but we can always say that we developed some of it it at top secret Area 51.

@ GB2064


I think that post is a great piece of work and TRUE. The White House comedians eh ?




Area 51 began as a WWII base.  After the war it was abandoned for a few years and then Lockheed-Martin used the site for aircraft testing. The "secret" testing facility evolved at the beginning of the Cold War when the US Government took the site over and it developed rapidly from there to become an advanced testing base for all kinds of future aeronautical designs and developments.

Nothing Alien, just man made hardware.

When will we learn all about Areas 1-50?
To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

You'll have to get a copy of the original map that had grid markers 51 from the area around Groom Lake. To find area's 1-50. What is known most commonly now as Area 51 was originally called Paradise Ranch, but that didn't work well enough as a recruiting moniker. Reverting back to the map grid designator actually improved recruitment for technicians and scientists for the site back in the 50's. Go figure?

Small Factoid:

Most commuters to Area 51 travel on unmarked Boeing 737s or 727s. Planes depart from the McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas (located right across the street from the Luxor Hotel and Casino). Defense contractor EG&G owns the terminal. Each plane uses the word "Janet" followed by three digits as a call sign to the airport's control tower.
