Area 51 : A Secret US Government Facility (Part 2)
Continuation from Part 1 - - - Many also believe that Area 51 is home to the top secret research of various unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs. In September, 1995, President Bill Clinton issued a presidential determination, exempting Area 51 from environmental disclosure laws. The order came following a lawsuit filed by former Area 51 workers who alleged they had become ill after being exposed to toxic fumes at the base. The lawsuit was dismissed, based on the grounds that further investigation would breach national security.
Exactly what was destroyed at Area 51 will remain a mystery. But one secret has been confirmed. Reverse engineering has been going on at Area 51 since the 1950s. The research was based on foreign technology, but not from out of this world. The 625 square miles of restricted skies above Area 51 is the most highly guarded airspace in the world.
But with modern satellite technology, getting a bird's-eye view of Area 51 as become as easy as the click of a mouse. With hangars and runways now clearly seen in satellite photos, is it possible a secret operation exists below the desert surface? Could there be secret underground facilities 20 floors below Area 51? And if so, why did they go so deep?
Some researchers claim Area 51 is the central hub of a vast underground network connected to other top secret facilities across the country, allowing materials and technology to be transported through a subterranean government complex by high-speed maglev trains traveling at up to Mach 2 speed. What might these huge and wide shafts have been designed to accommodate? And what could they be transporting? Is it possible that they were built to move around?
Though there is little physical evidence to prove such a vast tunnel complex exists, former Area 51 specialist T.D. Barnes claims a large underground testing facility can be found near the Nevada Test Site. According to Barnes, the secret subterranean installation was used from 1952 to 1972 to test nuclear rockets developed under a program called Project NERVA. This knowledge has led some to speculate that alien doomsday weapons, high-tech lasers and even teleportation devices have also been tested and developed underground at Area 51, through reverse engineering.
But is there any proof to the controversial claims of secret projects based on reverse engineering of extraterrestrial technology? In 1984, documents emerged from the National Archives describing a top secret group called the Majestic 12, formed by President Truman in September 1947, in the wake of the Roswell incident. The papers describe the secret committee as 12 scientists, military leaders and government officials ordered to investigate UFO activity. Some speculate the Majestic 12 may have been based at Area 51.
After months of investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation confiscated the documents and declared the Majestic 12 were completely bogus. But when the papers were released back to the public, they were heavily redacted. Why? What were they hiding? Are the Majestic 12 documents released in 1984 a smoking gun? Could they prove that the government was and still is actively engaged in reverse engineering alien technology at and possibly under Area 51? And if the UFO claims are baseless, why is the military base cloaked in secrecy?
Perhaps the most shocking secrets covered up at Area 51 aren't from out of this world, but instead firmly planted on Earth.
Five, four, three, two, one, zero. July 20, 1969. The crowning achievement in America's epic space race with the Soviet Union. American astronauts become the first humans to land on the Earth's moon. Apollo 11's commander Neil Armstrong becomes the first man to walk on the lunar surface. That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. Hundreds of millions of people around the world watched in amazement as this milestone of human engineering was broadcast on live television.
But not all who witnessed the event were convinced of its authenticity. In fact, some believe that the historic moon landing and the many that followed were all a sophisticated hoax filmed at Area 51. Those who believe that the moon landings were faked point to the American flag as it was supposedly photographed on the lunar surface. The flag's movement, they say, clearly shows the presence of wind, impossible in a vacuum. Might the U.S. government have faked the moon landing at Area 51 in order to fool the Soviets? Or might the secrets being kept at Area 51 be part of a more sinister Cold War cover-up? In 2011, a book titled written by journalist Annie Jacobsen, was released. In it, she claims Soviet leader Joseph Stalin sent a remotely controlled disc-shaped craft filled with surgically altered children into the United States, crashing at Roswell in 1947.
War of the Worlds
Though many dispute Jacobsen's claim, could outrageous tales of what might go on at Area 51 be strategic ploys to conceal what's really going on at the top secret facility? How will we ever know if any of the stories that come out of Area 51 are true? Could there be an intricate mythology created to cover up the truth? Even so, not everything developed at Area 51 has remained under wraps. Perhaps by looking at what we do know, we can gain more insight into what remains a secret. Have the UFO stories and conspiracy theories surrounding Area 51 simply been a smoke screen to protect actual clandestine military projects? Or is the truth about Area 51 really stranger than fiction? Will we ever know what the government is hiding at Area 51, or will we continue to be in the dark?
