For decades, Area 51 has been a topic of heavy speculation and conspiracy theories galore. No one really knows what goes on out there, though that doesn’t stop people from guessing. What we do know is that it has nothing to do with aliens (sorry, conspiracy buffs). But that doesn’t mean Area 51 isn’t a mystery — there’s still some seriously weird history surrounding it, plus plenty of covert ops that have raised more than a few eyebrows over time.
5. Even The President Doesn’t Know What Goes On There
If you’ve ever thought you might want to become President so you could open the X-Files, think again. Information about what goes on at Area 51 is available to the President only on a need-to-know basis, so even the Commander-in-Chief doesn’t know everything that goes on out there.
4. The Area Has Certain Federal Immunities
In 1994, Bill Clinton issued a Presidential Determination that exempted Area 51 from certain environmental disclosures. This was in response to a lawsuit against the facility from contractors who had become sick and died as a result of exposure during their work on the base. The determination has to be reviewed every year, and every President since Clinton has renewed it consistently. But that’s not the only special thing Area 51’s been given…
3. Many Believe The Facility Has Its Own Internet
2. There’s An Alumni Association
1. There Are Other Area 51s
Of course, they’re not called that (that would sort of defeat the purpose of numbering them, right?) but other branches of the service as well as other countries have “dark” properties that are used to develop secret military technology. The Navy has one in the Bahamas, and Brits also speculate about what goes on in their town of Farnborough.
