Area 51? Huh, what’s that?

Before diving into what is this about or why? Let me go back in time.

Some years ago, when I was in school, I played PC games. I still play. But that time, I had no other job in this material world and I played a lot. I was playing GTA San Andreas this day. GTA was a popular game maker those days. It is now more famous with the renowned GTA 5. I was playing the game. I didn’t like driving, so I always typed “ROCKETMAN” and flew around with my jetpack. Once, I was flying around in the Tierra Robada’s Bone County. There is a region in the desert. The structure is fenced with wires and there is Trespassers’ warning sign. People who have played the game know about this. They know exactly what I am talking about. You can’t get in that area, by no means. I was just flying above it and suddenly a missile hit me. Then, another. I was the target of some anti-aircraft missile systems and they were firing at me. You can’t fly around it, they take you down. On the sign on the fencing (yes, you can approach the fences, on foot) reads “Area 69”. I searched the internet for Area 69 and found out more. As gamers know, that the San Andreas map is based on real locations. The cities and everything is inspired by American places. So, what is Area 69’s counterpart in the real world?

Area 51

Area 51 is a mysterious top secret US military base in the Nevada desert. The Uniter States Air Force facility commonly known as Area 51 is a highly classified remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base. Other names used for the facility include Dreamland and nicknames Paradise Ranch and Home Base.

The remote desert location has been fenced off from the prying eyes of civilians. A 23 by 25 miles no-fly zone for civilian aircraft was imposed over the base and on the ground, and nearby locations Freedom Ridge were declared off-limits by the government. So, the analogy of Area 51 to Area 69 in the game is true.

There are many conspiracy theories around the place. Theorists believe that the remains of crashed UFO spacecraft are stored at Area 51, an Air Force base about 150 miles from Las Vegas, where government scientists reverse-engineer the aliens’ highly advanced technology. Fodder for this has come from a variety of supposed UFO sightings in the area and testimony from a retired Army colonel who says he was given access to extraterrestrial materials gathered from an alien spacecraft that crashed in Roswell, N.M.

But, why? Because the government’s activity is suspicious.

For years the US government denied it even existed. But in 2013 the CIA officially acknowledged its existence and its location was revealed. Its primary use is still unknown. Search the internet, or read Wikipedia. The government never shared anything about it apart from its location. They casually say it’s a site for gunnery practice.

In July 1947 the military sensationally announced in a press release it had found the remains of a crashed flying saucer in the desert. But the following day it retracted the statement, saying it was, in fact, a damaged US Air Force air balloon.

Some say there are alien bodies hidden there. Some say the government is studying alien technology, which they gathered from crashed UFOs and similar space objects. How true are these? Nobody knows.
