Have you heard of Area 51?
Located in the United States – near Groom Lake in a southern state called Nvada – it is the most secretive military base in the world.
Area 51 has been a source of conspiracy and paranormal stories – people believe that Area 51 is the place the American government hides alien bodies and UFOs. No one is allowed to go there and there are armed guards patrolling the area. Planes can’t even enter the airspace above this without permission from air traffic control.
Area 51 wasn’t even acknowledged as real before 2013 and people who saw it were convinced by the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) to acknowledge it as a shooter camp.
The U2 was one of the most famous military planes of the Cold War. It was designed to fly high over a foreign country, take pictures and gather information. The plane itself was developed in Area 51.
The Area 51 raid.
A person called Matty Roberts created an event called – Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us, which he wanted to use to storm (enter by force) Area 51. The event was scheduled for September 20th, 2019. More than 2 million people responded to the event as interested in going. However, the event caught a lot of media attention reaction and actually became an internet meme. Roberts realized what he had done, quickly cancelled the event, but the damage had already been done.
In the end, only 150 people showed up to storm Area 51 and none managed to infiltrate the facility.
Area 51 still remains a mystery and no one knows what secrets lie within…..
