How About Some Area 51 Conspiracy Theories?

A hush-hush air force base that everybody knew about.

Area 51 proved to be one of the worst kept secrets ever—a hush-hush air force base that everybody knew about.

Then, in 2013, the federal government finally owned up to the base’s existence. In response to a Freedom of Information Act request the CIA declassified a report titled Central Intelligence Agency and Overhead Reconnaissance: The U-2 and Oxcart Programs, 1954-1974. The CIA claimed that half of the UFO reports in the late ‘50s and most of the ‘60s were actually military aircraft on test flights in Area 51. Testing of top-secret aircraft took place there for the A-12—a spy plane that was faster than the speed of sound, the angular F-117 stealth fighter jet, the SR-71 Blackbird, and the B2 bomber. But, there was no reference at all to what Area 51 has been used for since 1974. 

Many people felt the government report was just a cover-up.  How could everyone be expected to suddenly forget all those UFO sightings there or the story of the UFO crash at Roswell in 1947 that supposedly resulted in Area 51 getting the alien spaceship so they could study it. Not to mention 70 years of bizarre tales of experimentation on extraterrestrials and government testing of alien starships and weaponry to discover ways to teleport, time travel, and control the weather. There were also all those rumors of underground tunnels 40 floors deep where scientist worked on the absolute strangest secret projects. 

One theory connecting Area 51 with aliens is based on numbers or rather the name and the numbers. The name, Area 51, was supposedly taken from a chart of numbers assigned to areas in the Nevada Test Site.

Using alphanumerics—the numeric representation for each letter of the alphabet, (a =1, b =2, etc.), Area 51 means Mars Area. 

The Los Angeles Times writer Annie Jacobson has another theory. After interviewing dozens of former pilots, spies, and engineers, she thinks the original Roswell UFO was actually an aircraft from Russia holding 13-year-old human guinea pigs who were surgically changed by Nazi doctor Joseph Mengele to look like aliens. Then the Nazi’s placed the children in an aircraft that looked like a flying saucer that took them to America for the purpose of creating a mass panic.

She claims her source stated the U.S. government used the deformed teens for medical testing and human experiments at Area 51. 

All of these stories and speculation led to Area 51 becoming a popular science fiction trope. And though a lot of these theories seems like crazy tales it does make you wonder… what is really going on in the Nevada desert? 

Personally, I like the alien Roswell crash and secret projects. Lol

Perilously yours,
