An aerial shot of Area 51.

Area 51 is a remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base, located in southern Nevada, USA. Built on the Groom Lake dry bed, it gained notoriety following the Roswell crash in 1947, becoming a permanent and enduring part of UFO culture for decades to come.


Its existence was first “confirmed” in 1989, when Bob Lazar, a supposed ex-Area 51 employee, made wild claims regarding reverse engineering and extraterrestrial life, with photographs showing up all through the 1990s and into the 2000s. On July 14, 2003, the U.S. government admitted the existence of Area 51, yet denied the practices that have embodied that base in popular culture. On October 2014, Area 51 Lockheed SkunkWorks Scientist, Boyd Bushman, made a confession on the facility on his deathbed. Among his claims is that both benevolent and malevolent alien species work at the facility alongside humans. He has passed a lie detector test for his claims.

Underground mag-rail systemEdit

An alleged underground magrail system exists from Area 51 to the Las Vegas Strip. The Echelon project is said to be a false casino construction project, that served as a cover, to connect the Las Vegas Strip to Area 51's mag-rail system. The secret construction phase was about a five-year project starting in 2007. The Luxor is said to be one of a few casinos that connects to this underground transport system. The transport system is immense, and is suspected to connect to Hawthorne Army Depot (a Naval Undersea Warfare Center project). The system travels north as far as Wendover, Utah. It likely connects to a suspected DUMB at a secret connection point that was part of the former Wendover Air Force Base. Triangle UFOs have been sighted in this area (Lear, 2018).
