5 Unbelievable secrets of mysterious Area 51...
Area 51 is located about 90 miles north of Las Vegas. It is a highly secretive American air force base. The exact use of Area 51 is unknown as it is strictly guarded and cut off from the public. Moreover, it was only publicly acknowledged by the CIA in 2013 when Agency released the official history of some of its projects in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.
1. An alien zone
In July 1947 there was a crash in Roswell, New Mexico. it was a weird plain or some new flying machine which was unknown to the human. Many believe that it was UFO, specifically a spacecraft and some even declared that they saw aliens leaving the craft. Many alien's conspiracy believers claimed that it was indeed an alien spacecraft that crashed and dead aliens were found. Local people said that they have seen creatures bodies and the spacecraft were transported to Area 51 by the military for further research and investigation.

2. If not an airbase than what?
Area 51 is a military base that is restricted to the public. Its official name is the Nevada Test and Training Range, which is part of the Edwards Air Force Base. It is a well-known fact that this super-secret base has many strange aircraft. This base's primary purpose is to support development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapons systems. Area 51 first began as a testing ground for the Lockheed U2 spy plane, a famous aircraft developed after World War II that was designed to carry out surveillance over the Soviet Union.
This base is not a conventional airbase, as front-line operational units are not normally deployed there. It instead appears to be used for highly classified military/defense Special Access Programs (SAP), which are unacknowledged publicly by the government, military personnel, and defense contractors. The first recorded test flight of an unmanned drone occurred in Area 51 in 1964.
Who knew about it for years?
3. For CIA eyes only
Do you know what cryptonym means? It is a secret name or code word that usually relates to a classified military operation. Most famous, the Central Intelligence Agency, or CIA, has used code names to reference people, operations, and other agencies since it was established in 1947. They hoped that they could attract workers to the base to begin testing on the new U-2 Spy Plane, so Area 51 was originally named Paradise Ranch. However, this blissful alias soon gave way to its more famous, cryptic code name.
CIA refused to acknowledge the existence of Area 51 in official documents or public statements until 2013 because the US government considered the work undertaken at the base to be too sensitive. In a statement from January 2001, President George Bush mentioned the "operational areas at Groom Lake", but finally, Area 51’s existence was admitted in an unclassified report that covered the first two decades of operations at Area 51.

4. High security
The whole airspace above Area 51 is known as R-4808N and is very restricted to all commercial and military flights not originating from the base itself. Pilots who fly into one of the buffer zones of Area-51 surrounding R-4808N reportedly face punishment from its commanders, though it's fairly lenient. Whenever a pilot flies through a buffer zone even by mistake, the training flights immediately ends and the pilot is ordered back to base. But flying into R-4808N is a very serious offense according to US law, and pilots can be punished by a court-martial, dishonorable discharge and time in prison.
A group of security guards known as the "camo dudes" works at Area 51 for its protection. Area 51 security seems pretty tough and strict. You can drive up near Lake road, however, if you cross the borders of the base, then only security guards know what they will do with you. Use of deadly force is authorized so you have been warned. Security systems seen here along the top of the ridge, include cameras and sound detection equipment.
Does UFO exist?
5. Seeing UFOs
Area 51 has been a part of many UFO researcher's vocabularies for decades. Every military power in the world is aware of Area 51. As we said in point 1, some believe that an alien spacecraft was crashed in Roswell and that the government shipped the wreckage and a body to Area 51 for examination and study. The autopsy video of the alien was taped inside Area 51 is concrete evidence that the designated military premise has a strong connection with aliens.
Other people claim the facility has underground levels and tunnels connecting it to other secret sites, and that it contains warehouses full of alien technology and even living alien specimens. Air Force representatives have publicly denied that aliens have anything at all to do with Area 51, but that seems to have only strengthened conspiracy theorists' wilder suggestions. Few people claim even to have worked at many of the underground alien-government research facilities.
