Area 51 is a United States Air Force facility that is located in southern Nevada and is the center of extraterrestrial events according to many people. There are rumors that this base was created for the development and testing of aircraft and weapon systems. This site has been an interest to so many people due to the fact that the government has released minimal to no information about it, which then causes curiosity to take over. If they are simply developing and testing new aircrafts and weapon systems, why make it such a secret? Area 51 is obviously a top secret base and until 2013, the CIA finally acknowledged the existence of the base for the first time and declassified all documents in regards to the base's history and purpose. Do I believe Area 51 is real? Of course. It's a real base. But is that the question people are asking? Absolutely not. The better question to ask is if Area 51 is/was used to research extraterrestrial beings and aircraft? Now that's a question that I don't have an answer to. Do I believe that they are/were doing research other hand aircrafts and weapon systems? Absolutely. If not, then why keep it such a secret to the public and put so much effort into hiding it. That doesn't make sense to me. And I believe the reason that the CIA finally admitted to the public that Area 51 does exist was because the base was getting too much from the general public, so they moved their "operations" of whatever they are hiding elsewhere in order to make the public think that nothing really was going on there. For being such a black site, a lot of people know about it and I don't think the government liked that, which is why they decided to declassify it. Area 51 has always been considered the heart of UFO's and Alien's. I'm very certain that they simply moved "Area 51" to another location just so they could go back to doing their operations in secrecy.
