We’ve all heard of area 51. Whether it be in a book, movie, or from a story whispered around a campfire, you’ve probably at some point heard of this mysterious government building. Located about 150 miles from Los Vegas, it has been called an “Air Force base” that houses government scientists in complete secrecy. They try to tell the public that area 51 is classified for purpose of national security, but what are they hiding? What is so secretive that it requires maximum security and total classification that must be kept secret from the entire world? Well many have theorised that the government is hiding aliens and or alien spacecrafts. The first bit of evidence to ever see area 51 as more than a military aircraft testing zone was the incident in Roswell New Mexico, 1947. Brazel, a farmer, heard a very loud crash in his field so he went to investigate. Upon closer inspection on the crash sight, he fond pieces of plastic and silver metal scraps that he did not recognise. He called the sheriff, who was just as baffled by the findings as Brazel. The sheriff called the military. When the military arrived they came with fully armed vehicles and carted the debris away. Once this story hit the media, many came up and spoke out about how they saw this mysterious object crash from the sky. The government had told the public, that this was in fact a balloon that they had been testing for something they call “project Mogul”. It was said that project Mogul was a top secret project that was designed to detect sound waves in the upper atmosphere from Soviet atom bombs tests by flying microphones on trains of balloons at high altitudes. Some accepted this explanation, but others we're very sceptical. There was a video released of a supposed dissection of the aliens said to come from this crash, but that video was later debunked as a fake.The Roswell incident, as it’s most commonly referred to, is the turning point in all alien sightings. After this incident, reported “alien sightings” skyrocketed. This is around the time where people started to question the true intentions on area 51 and what work they were really doing. In 1989 a man by the name of Bob Lazar did an interview with local news that really solidified peoples belief of area 51 and their alien conspiracy. He is said to be the one who outed the truth about what happens in area 51. He claimed he worked in a lad within area 51 underground. He told local news all about the multiple disc shaped crafts much too small for any human to maneuver. He had been talking to his friends about all the space crafts and he tried to sneak them in to show them the crafts. He was inevitably caught and fired. The government tried to deny these claims and said he never even worked for them. This is a classic he said she said story and people who believe in aliens use this incident as further proof while sceptics stay sceptics. The true happenings within this secret government lab as of now is still greatly debated and very few know what's really going on.
