Area 51 is the most famous base in the world. its place in popular culture is more than accepted and has been the scene of all kinds of stories, movies, and any kind of work you can imagine.
Located in the Nevada desert, USA, Area 51 is officially the “Nevada Testing and Training Camp”, but many people believe it is much more: it is the place where the US Army gathers tests and executes related experiments. with the paranormal.
For their part, the US military did not even admit the existence of such a base, even though it was well known that there was something there.
Not in vain the base was built on an airfield used during the Second World War, so it’s not as if there had never been anything there. But the secrecy about what was done at the base was absolute, and that stoked the flames of the conspirators.
In 2013, the US government officially recognized the existence of Area 51 as a secret investigation base; where they test the most advanced weapons and aircraft of the time. We can not forget that most sightings of ships, strange lights and sounds from another world coincided with the cold war.
In Area 51 is where the military tested spy planes such as the U-2, whose existence and capabilities could not be filtered to the Soviets under any circumstances; hence the choice of a base in a remote place, difficult to access and so heavily guarded.
This explanation is not enough for those who expected something more, of course, and now seek to discover once and for all “the truth.” To do this, they have created a group of Facebook called “Storm Area 51”, “Assault Area 51”, in which they seek volunteers for a massive invasion of the base.
A large number of social media users have reportedly committed to rushing in to the facility at the same time.
The questionable venture, which is scheduled for September 20th at 3am, will see attendees meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center in Amargosa Valley, Nevada before moving on to the base itself en masse.
Entitled ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us’, the ill-advised plan, which aims to find evidence of aliens at the base, was first posted up on Facebook by the user ‘SmyleeKun’.
As of writing there are 185,000 people signed up to attend and a further 220,000 who have registered their interest, however it is unclear how many of them will actually turn up on the day.
Given that Area 51 is well known for its armed security patrols, it is difficult to imagine what would happen if even a small fraction of those signed up actually did attempt to storm the base.
It is also highly unlikely that the stunt would yield any useful information about the facility.
Suffice to say, rushing headlong through the gates of Area 51 is really not a good idea.
The idea is simple: if enough people sign up, the security of the place will not be able to stop them all and someone will get inside. It is a very crazy plan and it could end very badly; Although its purpose is already public, Area 51 remains a military base and therefore has important security measures and soldiers without fear of firing if they suspect a terrorist attack.
The worrying thing is that the page is half joking and half seriously. It has been created by a page that usually posts “memes” and streams video games on Twitch, and not by a fan of the paranormal.
The plan is that there is no plan, it is assumed that those who sign up for the event will have to go to the location at dawn on September 20 and run to the base.
Although it is evident that it is a joke, the fear is that there are people who take it seriously; and with 200,000 people targeted, and another 200,000 interested in the event, there are likely to be some.
The page does not say anywhere that it is “humor”, and the event has been cataloged as a “Cause”, as if it were a protest. If by chance you pass through Nevada next September, we do not recommend that you go near the area … just in case.
