A government owned, top secret base that doesn't officially exist. Seems like they hoped that it wouldn't exist: right there in the middle of nowhere, giving forth a perpetual light show to those that dare come near the black mailboxes and little flags that mark the vast non-existing base with a license to kill. Strange, does the government take us for fools. Even if the base were only for new airplane tech, a Russian spy isn't going to get close enough for them to warrant a general right to shoot trespassers.
Seems strange though that right around the time that modern computers and avionics really took a turn for the better and jumped forward hundreds of years, the Roswell crash was reported. Before: vacuum tubes and light bulb computers, after: silicon wafers microprocessors. Before: spitfires, after: jet fighters with the capability of hovering in one place, invisible to radar, and faster than the speed of sound. Strange, and soon after that, all inventions seemed to stop coming from individual people, or even companies. Before you would here: Einstein invented this, Franklin invented that. After: the US military has come out with a faster and more maneuverable jet. Who knows how many years of advanced technology they have hidden in the boules of secret bases sprinkled around the country, world or even beyond. Area 51 is just the tip of the iceberg, and probably just a decoy. If it were really so secret, don't you think the US government would just use it as a decoy now that so many people know about it?
The military now has an excuse for the taxpayer to keep on pumping billions into the militaries black projects and top secret bases: they are making all the advancements in technology. When was the last time that a computer chip was developed that the military didn't provide a foundation for. Sure companies claim advancements, and rightfully, but those are based on the chips that the military released. If 50 years ago, an alien ship did crash in the desert near Roswell, and the wreckage taken to Area 51, the government could vary well be slowly cannibalizing the parts of the ship and slowly releasing the advancements to the public. Vacuum tubes to silicon wafers, an incredible advancement and total 180 degree shift from the ideology and train of thought of early computers. Who would have thought, and now, we are faced with a computer revolution that never should have happened. We still should be tinkering with lightbulb computers the size of rooms and a millionth the speed of a Pentium Pro 200 with teragigs of HD space.
But that would mean admitting that we needed the inadvertent help of alien technology to break forth in this technological boom matched by none in our four million years of history.
Coincidence? Until freedom of information is actually taken seriously by Mr. Coverup, we will never know. Unless of course people all over Canada and the US demand to know the truth, and stop taking all this BS. Oh well. That's but a fraction of some of the theories I have, and I would appreciate any feedback. But now here's some information on area 51 that I have picked up from various sources around the net.
20 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE
GROOM LAKE FACILITY (AREA-51)
by Michael Curta
Colorado MUFON Section Director
June 26, 1994
Q: Where is Area 51?
A: Area-51 is located at Groom Lake, NV. about
140 miles north of Las Vegas, NV. Near the
town of Rachel, NV. about 13 miles West of
HWY 375 on Groom Lake Road.
Q: How did Area-51 get it's name?
A: Area-51 got it's name from a map. The Facility
at Groom Lake is located in Area-51 of the
Nevada Test Site.
Q: Is S-4 and Area-51 the same place?
A: No! S-4 is a facility located at Papoose Lake,
NV. S-4 is the facility that Bob Lazar claims
to have worked at, reverse engineering ET UFO's.
The Air Force does not deny it exist, but will
only say they do testing there but will not
say what is tested there. S-4 is located about
12 miles SSW. of Area-51.
Q: Who provides Security for Area-51
A: A subsidiary of EG&G (NOT Wackenhut) EG&G is
the same company that runs Rocky Flats Nuclear
Weapons Plant in Denver.
Q: Can I See the Facility at Groom Lake (Area-51)?
A: Yes, there are several viewing points on Public
Land 2 of the best are White Sides Mountain and
Freedom Ridge. Stop in Rachel for EXACT DIRECTIONS
to these locations.
Q: What will I see from White Side or Freedom Ridge?
A: 10 miles away you can see the Base, all of it's
buildings and a runway reportedly 27,000 ft. long.
That's over 5 miles...
Q: Can you take a camera up on the mountains?
A: This is up to you. The signs say no photos, map
making or drawings may be made of the base or
anything operating on or above it.
Q: Can I drive up either of the Mountains?
A: Yes, you can drive up Freedom Ridge with a 4X4,
but you must climb White Sides.
Q: What is Old Faithful?
A: Old Faithful was first reported to be a (ET)
UFO that arrived every Wednesday morning at
04:45 like clock work, hence the name Old
Faithful. It is now known that this is nothing
more then the first of the 373 flights from Las
Vegas, that brings the workers into Area-51
Q: Are there UFO's At Area-51?
A: According to Bob Lazar no, the (ET) UFO's
are at S-4 and not Area-51
Q: Is there a view point where I can see S-4 from?
A: Yes, but ask for direction in Rachel.
Q: Is there a fence around the complex?
A: No. There are some wooden poles that mark
the border but NO fence.
Q: How will I know I am there?
A: Well if drive down Groom Lake Road and make it
to the Guard House you have gone to far!
Q: What would happen if I drove up to the
A: If you drive to the Guard House you are
already on the installation and will be
removed (not asked, but removed) from your
vehicle and arrested, and if you are lucky
that is all that will happen to you.
Q: What is the weather like?
A: This is the desert, it's hot, Dry, windy and
there are NO trees. As someone once said about
this place, "This is a place where a group of
a 1,000 people could easily get lost".
BE PREPARED! Help is a long Way off if it
comes at all.
Q: What is the first thing I should do when I
A: Go into the town of Rachel and find the UFO
Research Center or the Little A-Le-Inn (alien)
Bar and Grill (you can't miss them) and get
directions and gas. It might be 100+ miles
between gas stations, and when you find one
they might not have any gas. There is only
about 75 or 100 people in Rachel so don't
expect much, but the people are very friendly
for the most part.
Q: Will I see anyone who works at Area-51?
A: Maybe. But don't bother them, they will not
answer your questions and it is considered
rude to ask!
Q: Is there Police/Sheriff and EMS in Rachel?
A: NO! But everyone has a gun, and the town's
people enforce the law. THEIR LAW. The Sheriff
is about 50 miles away in Alamo. Some of the
fine people of Rachel are EMT's but there is
no Ambulance or Rescue, so you are on your own.
Q: What else might I see when I am there?
A: well even if you don't see any UFO's chances
are you will see lots of military aircraft
preforming all sorts of maneuvers. This is the
home of Air Force Thunderbirds, The Air Force's
Red Flag and a host of other military groups.
Q: Are there any other instillations in the area
A: Yes, Nellis AFB and The Nevada Test Site cover
over 3 million acres. There are several other
installations on the Test Site, possibly more we
don't know about. The base at Tonopah, NV. on the
NW side of the Test Site is said to have had a
dramatic increase in security and activity over
the 9 to 12 months.
As a last word of advice, The Air Force, EG&G and who
ever else might be in control at Area-51 is fed up
with all of the tourist and media coming to see the
base, they are no longer messing around, if you mess
up you will be in for some serious trouble. DON'T
PUSH IT! DON'T make the rest of us look bad by doing
something stupid. This might be public land but people
live and ranch here, respect their rights!
