Area 51 doesn't exist: oh yes it does - world's worst kept secret revealed in pictures
Area 51, the remote military base in the Nevada desert, USA, doesn’t officially exist.
But, as National Geographic magazine reveals, declassification of information, including images of a titanium spy-plane, the A-12 (above), and a mysterious crash and cover-up involving the aircraft, point conclusively to its existence.
The base (seen from space, below) is perhaps the worst-kept secret in the world and has always been the subject of UFO rumours and conspiracy theories simply because of the secretive nature of the work carried out there.
These theories include:
Examination, storage and reverse engineering of a crashed alien ship (including bodies recovered at Roswell)
Meetings with extraterrestrials
Development of secret weapons
Research into time travel, weather control and teleportation
Many of these theories are repeated in popular Sci-Fi television programmes, especially the Stargate series. Area 51 was mentioned countless times in the Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis shows.
