Should the government or Area 51 expose the truth to us about what has really been going on?

Area 51 is situated in the southwestern portion of Lincoln County in southern Nevada in the western United States. A large military airfield is situated at its center. This center is known as the most secretive places in the world. Although, the base’s primary purpose as explained by the authorities is to support development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapons systems, there are thousands of people who do not believe this story.

The intense secrecy surrounding the base, the very existence of which the US Government barely acknowledges, together with reports of unusual phenomena has led it to become the frequent subject of conspiracy theories and UFO folklore. There are many stories circulating around on Area 51 – most of them are about UFOs and aliens. I have tried to compile some of the unconventional activities claimed to be underway at Area 51. I have also included some supposed proofs in favor of these claims. Let me know if I have left some other ideas out of this hub.


1. Alien spacecraft storage: Storage, examination, and reverse engineering of crashed alien spacecraft

2. Study of aliens: Examination of dead aliens that came in UFOs and interrogation of living aliens

3. Manufacture of aircraft based on alien technology

4. Meetings or joint undertakings with extraterrestrials

5. Energy weapons: Development of exotic energy weapons said to be many times deadlier

6. Weather control: Established means of weather control or experiments undergoing over it

7. Time travel: Establishedmeans of time travel ordevelopment of time travel technology

8. Aurora aircraft: Development of unusual and exotic propulsion systems related to the Aurora Aircraft Program (a cutting age spy plane)

9. Politics and secret society: Activities related to a supposed shadowy one world government and/or the Majestic Twelve organization (A secret committee of scientists, military leaders, and government officials, supposedly formed in 1947 by an executive order of U.S. President Harry S. Truman to investigate UFO activity)

10. Simulation of moon’s environment: In 2000-2001, Fox Television broadcast a show about Apollo moon landing hoax accusations, in which it was suggested that the entire moon landing in 1969 was a hoax and was filmed in parts of Area 51

11. Misdirection attempt: During the mid 1990s, the most secret work previously done in Area 51 was quietly moved to other facilities and the continued secrecy around is largely a successful attempt at misdirection


1. In 1989, Bob Lazar claimed that he had worked at a facility at Papoose Lake (which he called S-4) on such a U.S. Government flying saucer

2. The 1996 documentary Dreamland directed by Bruce Burgess included an interview with a 71 year old mechanical engineer who claimed to be a former employee at Area 51 during the 1950s, working on a “flying disc simulator” built to train US Pilots, based on a disc originating from a crashed extraterrestrial craft. During his career at Area 51 he claimed to have worked with an extraterrestrial being whose name was “J-Rod”, described as a telepathic translator

3. Dan Burisch (real name, Dan Crain) claims to have worked on cloning alien viruses at Area 51, also with the alien “J-Rod”

4. In July 1996, a man named “Victor” announced on Art Bell’s Coast to Coast AM radio show that he had a videotape of an alien interrogation which had taken place in Area 51. He claimed that he had made a copy of the tape during a scheduled transfer of analogue videotape files on the base into digital form, and had then smuggled the copy out of Area 51. The video appears to show the head of an alien creature in a dark interrogation room, allegedly using telepathy to communicate with military personnel and scientists. The footage was eventually included in a video documentary entitled Area 51: The Alien Interview

    No it would only upset people

  2. tEmP says:

    There’s no real hard evidence, one man saying he’s seen an alien isn’t enough.
    It’s obvious there lying just to get attention. and the tape could of easily been faked.
    Tbh…I don’t think it matters wha’s going on there, they’re obviously not going to let ‘the secret’ out as it could cause controversy and panic if the stories are true.

  3. the old dog says:

    They have been telling the truth!
    Nobody is listening!

  4. survivor says:

    I find American secrecy, corruption and conspiracies exhausting. The paranoia must take away from living a happy life. (As well as seeing all other countries as needing to be converted to the American way of life) How do you ever rest?

  5. QWERTY says:

    If all these things are going on there I personally WANT them to keep it quiet. Can you imagine the mass hysteria if the general public found out these things were true. Think about all the duct tape that was bought after 9/11. I agree, level heading thinking people would like to know the truth but not everyone IS level headed.

    I also would prefer that if our country is developing weapons in area 51 whether they are trying to mimic alien aircraft or not, I don’t want the whole world to know what we’re up to. What kind of security would that be if everyone knew how we built our weapons?

  6. thegubmint says:

    Bob Lazar is a frigging loon. All there has ever been at Area 51 is advanced conventional weapons systems in the early stages of their development and testing, high tech to be sure, but no aliens, no flying saucers, no secret viruses.

  7. s7e7v7e7n7 says:

    The lure into area 51is a magnetic field much like the hotel California, are you certain you want to know?

  8. Doug says:

    No they shouldn’t. Why? Because while a person is intelligent and rational, people are stupid and their fear of the unknown/inability to understand certain things makes them quick to panic, so the result would be mass hysteria, civil unrest and social breakdown. If you were the government would you risk that just so some basement dwelling obsessives can have their curiosity satisfied? No, of course not.

  9. AirGuitar15 says:

    It’s all an urban myth.
    Except for the flying saucer, it might be possible the US Gov’t has developed sumthin like that… I mean, **** Germany successfully developed a prototype flying saucer without being able to use it =/ so why not

  10. sometimeswrong says:

    I have decided one thing for sure, if this secret place and secret experiments exist then it is operating totally devoid of any contact with Washington D.C. Those loons in Congress could never keep a secret or resist “making a buck” on some secret video. It is just inconceivable to me that an organization of clandestine operations could exist with their knowledge.

  11. Carole B says:

    Government tell the truth? Are you kidding?

  12. wild-man of Borneo says:

    Look in the real world.
    Decode this lyrics ” I can see clearly now”
    “Say you say me”
    “Knowing me knowing you”
    Luke 6.39-40,41-45,46-49
    What do you think?

  13. bellevuebigbody says:

    As much as i would want to believe in this, the true evidence is lacking.
    The government has issued official documents under the freedom of information act stating the “alien” connection between area 51. Was a top secret experimental air craft testing ground. These documents state that the smoke and mirror cover of “UFOs” was a good cover to
    hide the actual top secret military air craft being built at that facility. Those reports were used as disinformation to discredit the actual work
    being done.

    A secret like that could never be contained by any government especially in this day and age of computer enhancement.

    Personally I do believe that there are alien life out there but I doubt we
    have ever made actual contact with them.
