Only in 2013 had the US publicly admitted about the existence of the infamous Area 51. Its title is also mentioned in an official statement of Barack Obama, however though the veil of secrecy appeared to be falling off, the CIA refused to offer any additional details on this topic.
Now that the beans have been partially spilled, here are some less known details in regards to the notorious military base:
1. It had various names along the years, some used for cover up reasons and some for luring unaware working force to the remote area of Nevada where it’s located. It was often called ‘Paradise Ranch’, and known as a rustic resort. Other names were ‘Home Base’, ‘Water Town’, and ‘Dreamland’, none of this sending suspicions about a top-secret governmental facility. The CIA insists that the right name for it’s both Homey Airport, or Groom Lake, however everyone knows it as Space 51, a reputation first talked about in a CIA doc from the Vietnam battle.
2. Many years after the Cold War, reports have surfaced revealing mounting evidence of the existence of the A-12 spy plane – an aircraft with superior flight capabilities developed inside Area 51. In keeping with the existing documents, the aircraft might reach speeds up to 3,500 km/h and remain undetected from ground radars.
3. Workers only worked during the night time when constructing the 9,000 foot long runway for the testing of A-12, in order that it wouldn’t draw any suspicious eyes, and no clear photos or video could be taken.
4. In April 1955, when Dwight Eisenhower was president, management of the area was given to CIA for developing and testing a scouting plane in a classified mission named Aquatone.
5. You could have lobsters, oysters and even steak on a weakly basis at the Swedish buffet at Area 51.
6. Access inside the massive army base and a considerable amount of terrain that surrounds it’s strictly forbidden for anybody indirectly involved, however that didn’t stop controversial materials of aliens, fallen UFOs and other anomalies from surfacing from time to time.
7. There’s a strip of land referred to as The Nellis Range close to the Groom Lake facility used for testing weapons and technology very important for US army. Through the Cold War, the Atmoic Energy Comission (AEC) supervised a number of atmospheric nuclear detonations for the sol purpose of developing novel atomic technology. The Air Force has publicly admitted its existence, however all activities are still classified.
8. A number of reports suggest that the army exploited the secrecy agreement surrounding area 51, together with the truth that individuals working there had to remain silent about what was going on always. In this acceptance, enormous amounts of toxic wastes were dumped at the site. In year 1996, after Robert Frost died due to the toxic fumes inhaled during working hours, his wife Helen took the matter to court, however she did not reach any consent as a result of the case was dismissed on account of national security considerations. Other rumors speak of how other army facilities were illegally disposing their toxic trash at Area 51 due to its remote location and since the base is apparently exempt of any environmental laws.
9. After test pilot Ken Williams ejected from the cockpit earlier than his aircraft had crashed, he landed close to a pickup truck. The owners offered to take him to the wreckage, however he immediately refused and advised them to leave the area immediately as a result of the craft had radioactive materials on board.
10. Most reports concerning UFOs between the 50s and 60s were written by pilots that were constantly scouting the area. A latest research confirmed that 70% of individuals living in the U.S. believe within the existence of UFOs and extraterrestrial being, and most of them suspect the 2 are related in a way to Area 51.
