Reviews of Area 51 • 1
Located 83 miles north of Las Vegas in Nevada, Area 51 is classified as a US military installation. While the primary purpose of Area 51 is publicly unknown, some speculate, on the basis of historical evidence, that Area 51 supports the development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapon systems. The folklore about the secret base has already been going on for decades and the US government's denial about the existence has fuelled the imaginations of conspiracy theorists, some of them relating to extraterrestrial life. Also referred to as Homey Airport, Groom Lake, Dreamland, Paradise Ranch, Home Base and Watertown, the perimeter of the base is covered with ground sensors and listening devices to detect even the smallest intrusion.
