So much secret things going on there. We truly don't know. Any person who works their probably swears to not tell anyone else about it. If people knew, it could cause chaos.

It's a military aircraft testing area. And we don't want our enemies seeing what is being designed /developed, thats why it's kept so secret. It also keeps the "scaredy cats" busy.

Its a ultra classified military base that the government didn't even admit existed until 1995. Though its use goes back to at least 1941.

It is where many modern aircraft, especially spy planes and stealth crafts were first tested. The U-2, X-15, SR-71, A-12 and more. Mainly aircraft designed by Lockheed's special division "Skunkworks".

They say an experimental aircraft crashed in the 1950s, which people believe to be an extraterrestrial craft.

Security is authorized to use lethal force against trespassers.

There are lawsuits against the area by former employees - they used to dump a lot of toxic stuff into the ground and the workers have been getting sick and dieing.

It "use to be" a secret military base suspected of hiding and developing "alien" technology. The term Area 51 is actually a designated map location for military (Area 50, Area 51, etc) but so much hype over these suspicions has forces the military to re-locate any tech that they may have been developing there. Too many "sight-seers"

The truth is that Area 51 is now obsolete. Somebody on Ask (forget who) pointed out, at least a year ago, that they're up to Area 58 now.

I'm confused, please elaborate? I don't understand what you mean

Sorry, hailissa. It's just that all the rumours and myths about Area 51 have given rise to lots of jokes. This was one of them. There are NO UFOs, and NO little green men, and NO government conspiracy to keep us from finding out that ET has been peeking over our shoulder and threatening us with racial extermination.
