Area 51, is an Air Force Facility in the US. That’s about everything that is officially known about the base and its operations. It is situated deep in the desert of Nevada. So as you can understand, it’s very remote. The region, has been historically used as a testing ground, for several experimental aircrafts and weapons.
The secretiveness surrounding Aria 51 has led into a plethora of conspiracy theories. The stickiest ones, have to do with aliens. Believing that Aria 51 is some sort of storage for crashed UFOs or retirement home for aliens that visited our planet – intentionally or not.
In recent events, Area 51, has come back to the spotlight, after the creation of “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us”. A Facebook event that has since become one of the most popular Facebook events, ever. More than a million people have joined the event and another million seem to be interested in it.
Those joining the event, are supposed to gather on the 20th of September, storm Area 51, and “see them aliens” for themselves.
“[Area 51] is an open training range for the US Air Force,” Air Force spokesperson Laura McAndrews said “and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces.
“The US Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.”
There is of course no way of knowing what is actually going to happen, but most likely the event was created satirically.
“We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry,” it reads. ”If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens.”
