Area 51 has long been the mysterious and an unknown area where anything from aliens to secret government projects could have existed. Now reports have it that CIA kept Area 51 as secret because reality couldn’t defend rumors.


Area 51

In 1955, a special plane called U-2 was created by Lockheed Martin for active aerial surveillance. The plane was equipped with cameras which could take high-resolution photos while flying at high altitudes. The U.S. government needed a remote site where it could test out the surveillance aircraft without any hassles. So,the government chose Groom Lake or Homey Airport (we know as Area 51) for the test. Interestingly, at the same time, Area 51 started becoming mysterious to people.

Basically, Area 51 was a place, where many aircrafts used to come from anonymous terminal on the western side of McCarran International Airport along with some passengers and at the end of the day, returned with them to that anonymous terminal. After that, the passengers used to go home. if they were asked what happened at the work place or what did they do there, they would answer nothing. Such behavior and the sate of anonymity of Area 51 became a subject of suspicion.

In the long period, many powerful and efficient aircrafts were built there, which to some people appeared as unnecessary. Therefore, rumors started swirling around that many wrong things or evil planning might be done there. But in reality, no such activity was going on there. As the rumors were strong enough, so CIA understood that revealing the truth before people would not convince people to understand the reality and therefore the agency decided to keep Area 51 as secret. And now, it’s no more hidden that Area 51 is a site in Nevada where U.S. government tested surveillance aircrafts.
