Area 51 in Nevada has long been speculated to be a hotbed of extraterrestrial activity — and it’s not just conspiracy theorists who think so!
Aside from the president and need-to-know military personnel, no one has any idea what goes on at the remote base. Some say it’s used to develop and test secret government projects, but a more popular theory is that it houses a UFO that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico.
Two self-proclaimed “adventure travelers” attempted to gain access to Area 51 through a back entrance. Within moments, they were not only stopped, but held at gunpoint by men in camouflage.
In 1947, Roswell made national headlines when an unidentified flying object crash-landed on a ranch.
The military claimed that it was nothing but a downed weather balloon, but not everyone believes that explanation. Whether or not a UFO is stored at Area 51 remains unknown, but one thing is for sure — the government doesn’t want anyone poking around there.
