They way it's guarded, I feel like there is "something" there, whether that something is gold stockpile, or just government research, I don't know. Could be extraterrestrial could just be an R&D center for cutting edge technology.
Maybe it's a place where if the us collapses or gets nuked they can rebuild it with key people stationed there, like a bomb shelter but in a large underground city format....who knows except the people there
I was thinking along the same lines that it might be a survival retreat for key people. I think that its a too high a profile to have something there though with all the media etc that goes around with it.
I hear aliens, I hear experimental aircraft, I hear talk of the moon, talk of nuclear subs there just is really no telling. It's abandoned now but they still guard it. That will always be one of the big mysteries, nobody will find out anytime soon when they patrol it for no reason. Jus makes folks want to know more.
Roswell, NM is just 180 miles SE from where I live, I have met several people from there and watched lots of documentaries. I am convinced that aliens were there. Maybe not today, but they were there. If it is abandoned, why is it so heavily guarded?
Brad Meltzer did a great show on Decoded called UFO. If I was unsure before, I an convinced now the aliens were there. Too much government cover up not to be true.
Way too high profile for anything to be there. They make a huge deal out of it.
But IMO, if I were trying to hide something very secret, I WOULD HAVE an Area 51,
to keep the attention away from the real thing.
Think about it, if everyone thought Area 51 was the place hiding everything, they wouldnt
be looking for the real place, which would be very well hidden.
Pretty sure what's there is what they say it is....experimental aircraft development. Certainly a reason to have high security. But holding Alien to Top secret stuff there? No way, not with the media talking about Area 51. They have their own movies, tv shows, video games, etc.
