Area 51

What do aliens, advance technology and the US Air Force have in common? Area 51. Area 51 is in an Air Force base located in Nevada. The US government does actually not recognize it due to the fact that it is located inside a test and training range for new, secret technology and aircraft for the military. Area 51, however, grew in popularity with the news of Roswell. The “Roswell UFO Incident” refers to the crashing of an unidentified object with alien inhabitants by the US military. The military, however, maintains that the debris that they picked up were from a test weather balloon. Area 51 came into the picture because many believe that the craft and the inhabitants were taken there for further study.
The question at issue is if creatures from another world exist and if the US military has recovered these creatures and their technology.
The assumption that a vast majority of people have is that extra-terrestrial life does indeed exist and that the US military is hiding something at their testing facility in Area 51.
 I found some information from watching Penn & Teller’s: Bullshit! Episode on Area 51 and researching online. The link below shows the full episode from the show. Penn and Teller: Bullshit! Area 51 The information that I found discussed that the main reason the US Air Force is keeping Area 51 so secret is not because of having extraterrestrial life, but because they are testing very new and very secret aircrafts and technology. Including but not limited to the U-2 spy plane, B-2 stealth bomber, and the Predator spy plane. Information from these test sites getting out into the public and possibly wrong hands could jeopardize the safety of US citizens and members of the military using these crafts.
My point of view is that extra terrestrial life does exist. I believe that our universe is far too vast and that it is near impossible that the conditions for life only happened in our solar system to our planet. In saying that, however, I do not believe that life has reached our planet. I am not a believer in green people crashing here and the military experimenting on them; I merely believe that we’re not alone in this Universe and somewhere out there is another world with life.

  1. I agree. I believe there is other life on the planet, but I don't know if they have actually reached earth. I think the government is too secretive to know whether they have 'experimented on aliens' or not. I also believe that more physical evidence is necessary to prove such claims of life on other planets and whether that life has reached earth.
