How Military Base Area 51 Became the Heartland of Alien Conspiracy Theories

Article by Jayden Collins                                   September 4, 2020                                     (happymag.tv)

• A secret military base sits in the middle of the Nevada desert, about 82 miles northwest of Las Vegas known as ‘Area 51’. It has become the subject of endless pop culture references and memes, as well as the epicentre of the world’s most famous alien conspiracies. How did this Air Force facility become linked with extraterrestrial folklore, and are they really holding tea parties with alien lifeforms inside the base?

• The government used the desolate Nevada desert region as a weapons test range during World War II. In 1954 it was commissioned Area 51 by President Eisenhower as an Air Force base that tested spy planes, such as the U-2, far away from the public and Soviet spies. Perhaps today’s conspiracy theories are rooted in the base’s history of Soviet espionage.

• In 1947, there were reports of a weather balloon crashing on a ranch in southeastern New Mexico near a town called Roswell. But rumors abounded that the US military had taken a crashed UFO craft to Area 51. Then in the late 1980s, Robert Lazar came forward to claim that he had been one of the scientists reverse engineering alien spacecraft at Area 51. Lazar even claimed to have seen an alien himself. Lazar became a cult hero among conspiracy theorists, and while his credentials were pretty quickly discredited, it was his interview that would forever link Area 51 to the unknowns of outer space.

• The phenomena of Area 51 grew in the ’80s and ’90s, and took on a life of its own within popular culture. The science fiction television series The X-Files continually referenced the facility and the government’s agenda to keep the existence of extraterrestrial life a secret. In 1996, Area 51 was prominently feature in the film Independence Day, about an alien attack on Earth. In 2011, the comedy Paul depicted an extraterrestrial who has escaped from Area 51. The secret base was even referenced in the kids’ movie Lilo & Stitch, with the aliens in the film choosing to name planet Earth, Area 51. Barack Obama was the first US President to publicly acknowledge Area 51 in 2013.

• In June 2019, 20-year-old student Matty Roberts created a Facebook event called ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All Of Us’. The event was set for September 20, 2019, and quickly turned into a trending meme, with 2 million people clicking ‘going’, and 1.5 million clicking ‘interested’. What was initially intended as a joke turned into a serious issue for the US government. The military’s public relation office made a Twitter post with a photo of military personnel and a B-2 stealth bomber. The caption read: “The last thing #Millenials will see if they attempt the #area51raid today.” The tweet was later deleted. However, only 1,500 people showed up to the hastily assembled music festivals, while only 150 people ventured to the gates of Area 51.

• So, what is really going on at Area 51? Apart from the creation of U-2 and A-12 aircraft and an early spy mission, we don’t officially know. However, according to Annie Jacobsen, author of the book Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base, it’s a whole lot of reverse-engineering – and not just of alien craft. Foreign technology captured on battlefields is often brought back to the facility to be tested and re-created. Jacobsen believes that Area 51 is still the location used by military intelligence to create counterterrorism tactics, weapon systems, and surveillance platforms, all of which are hidden from the public.

• Yet in July of this year, the Pentagon released three videos of UFO-like objects moving quickly through the air. They were accompanied by a report which stated the objects were “off-world vehicles not made of this world.” Since then, the Pentagon has set up a UFO task force in an attempt to discover the nature and origins of these objects, further fueling the fire of UFO-related suspicions surrounding Area 51.

 

Located 134km northwest of Las Vegas is a dirt road leading out from Nevada’s ‘Extraterrestrial Highway’ and down towards Homey Airport, the home of a notorious US military base.

              ‘Storm Area 51’ revelers

What lies within this military base is mostly a mystery to the public. It goes by various names including Paradise Ranch, Red Square, Nevada Test and Training Range, and of course, the one most commonly used in myth and legend, Area 51.

This secret base sits in the middle of the Nevada desert and has become the subject of endless pop culture references and memes, as well as the epicentre of the world’s most famous alien conspiracies.

But just how did this air force facility become linked with extraterrestrial folklore, and are the United States really holding tea parties with alien lifeforms inside this bewitching base?

A Soviet spy station

Commissioned in 1954 by President Eisenhower, Area 51 was created in order to test spy planes far away from the public eye, with the ultimate goal of infiltrating the Soviet Union’s nuclear weapons program.

The area within the Nevada Test and Training Range was already used for nuclear weapon testing back in World War II, and as such, it was the perfect location to ensure the public would keep their distance. What came out of the espionage work done at Area 51 would ultimately be significant in maintaining the United States’ superpower status.

First up was the commissioning of the U-2 spy plane, an aircraft that could fly as high as 70,000 feet in the air (an unfathomable feat at the time), travel across the US without needing to refuel, and carry cameras that could spy on Soviet land below.

       The movie “Independence Day”

From its expeditions, the U-2 plane discovered that the Soviet military was not as advanced as what was claimed by its leaders, leading the United States to believe that they weren’t too far behind their military rivals. However, the plane was shot down in Soviet airspace in 1960. Both the pilot and aircraft were recovered, keeping them out of the hands of the Soviet Union; however, US authorities were forced to admit the purpose of the mission.

This lead to the creation of the Lockheed A-12, an aircraft that could fly across the US in 70 minutes at an altitude of 90,000 feet, photographing objects on the ground that were just one-foot long. With the number of A-12 flights coming in and out of Area 51, reports of unidentifiable flying objects grew in the area. The aircraft’s titanium body and bullet speed resembled nothing seen in the US before.

With the nature of these military aircraft, coupled with the secrecy surrounding these espionage missions, it’s easy to see why conspiracy theories arose around the goings-on inside the military base.

Does the Element 115 Have a Connection With UFOs?

Article by Nathan Chandler                                  September 2, 2020                                (science.howstuffworks.com)

• Element 115, or ‘moscovium’, is a super-heavy element, heavier than uranium, that was only added to the periodic table of elements in 2016. But in 1989, the former Area 51 employee, Bob Lazar, said that he had worked with element 115 at the classified Nevada military base. It was used, he said, in relation to reverse-engineering and flying the nine alien spacecraft that were being stored at Area 51.

• Those Area 51 spaceships utilized the characteristics of element 115 to harness the inherent power of gravity as a propulsion system. Lazar said that it would be impossible to synthesize such a super heavy element here on Earth. “It has to come from a place where super-heavy elements could have been produced naturally,” said Lazar.

• Jacklyn Gates is a scientist with the Heavy Elements Group in the Nuclear Science Division for Berkeley Lab in California. She describes element 115 as “a man-made, super-heavy element that has 115 protons in its nucleus.” Gates says that element 115 is an extremely rare element that can only be made one atom at a time in a particle accelerator. Furthermore, it exists for just a fraction of a second before it decays into another element. Gates reasons that Bob Lazar could not have known about element 115 because the element decays too fast to be used as UFO fuel. Therefore, she cannot see any connection between element 115 and Lazar’s claims.

• Gates agrees, however, that moscovium is an amazing element. She says that it is a sign that we’re pushing the boundaries of what we know about the universe. So far, moscovium doesn’t have a practical use outside of scientific study. But scientists predict that they will achieve an ‘island of stability’ where moscovium might exist longer than one second – perhaps months or years in the right environment. “That is long enough that we might be able to use them for practical applications,” says Gates.

• Element 115 was “officially” discovered in 2003 in Dubna, Russia when it was created at the Flerov Laboratory for Nuclear Reactions by a group of scientists led by nuclear physicist Yuri Oganessian. The element was eventually named moscovium because Dubna is located in Moscow. “To create a super-heavy element, you need the complete fusion of two lighter elements,” says Gates. This process produced four atoms of moscovium.

• Virginia Trimble is a physics and astronomy professor at the University of California Irvine who also finds element 115 exciting. These heavy elements “don’t always decay in the expected patterns, and where more than a few atoms can be produced at once, they don’t always have the chemical properties that you would expect from their position in the periodic table,” says Trimble. [T]heir properties provide stronger and stronger tests of our basic physical understanding.”

[Editor’s Note]  The University of California, Berkley is a notorious deep state institution. And Jacklyn Gates, a scientist in the Nuclear Science Division at Berkeley Lab, proves it again. Lazar spoke of element 155 and its properties in 1989. But the element wasn’t created on Earth until 2003. Lazar thought it would be ‘impossible’ to make on Earth because the super heavy element needed an alien environment. (Apparently, the Area 51 scientists obtained the element from an extraterrestrial source.) Just as Lazar had depicted, Gates describes the painstaking scientific methods required to make element 155 exist for even a fraction of a second before decaying.

Still, Gates says that she cannot see any connection between element 115 and Lazar’s claims. She refutes Lazar’s contention that the scientists at Area 51 could have been using a stable element 155 as a part of the spacecrafts’ anti-gravity propulsion… because she was unable to stabilize the element. This reminds me of the age-old adage about why a person could not have seen a UFO: “because UFOs don’t exist!” These deep state scientists are surely under mind control.

Element 115 is an enigma of sorts. It was only added to the periodic table in 2016, yet for decades it has

            Jacklyn Gates

attracted extra attention because of a supposed connection to extraterrestrial technology and alien lifeforms.

Intrigued? Before we answer whether there is a connection, let’s find out what element 115 really is.

“Element 115, or moscovium, is a man-made, super-heavy element that has 115 protons in its nucleus,” emails Jacklyn Gates, a scientist with the Heavy Elements Group in the Nuclear Science Division for Berkeley Lab in California. (As with all elements on the periodic table, the element’s

                      Yuri Oganessian

number corresponds to the number of protons in the nucleus of the element’s atom.) “That is 23 more protons than the heaviest element that you can find in large quantities on Earth, uranium.”

Gates says that element 115 is an extremely rare element that’s made one atom at a time in particle accelerators. It exists for just a fraction of a second before it decays into another element.

“It is special because it is near a predicted ‘island of stability’ where some super-heavy nuclei might have much longer lifetimes. Instead of living for less than a second, they could exist for minutes, days or even years! That is long enough that we might be able to use them for practical applications,” she says.

Element 115 was discovered in 2003 in Dubna, Russia at the Flerov Laboratory for Nuclear Reactions by a group of scientists led by nuclear physicist Yuri Oganessian. The element was eventually named moscovium because Dubna is in Moscow.

Look at These Images and Tell Us You Don’t Believe in ETs

Article by Ashley Maaike                                      August 26, 2020                                        (filmdaily.co)

• Are we alone in this vast universe? Will we encounter other intelligent forms of life in our galaxy or our own planet for that matter? We may think we know what’s out there – but the truth is we haven’t even scratched the surface. Could it be that aliens are real and the government is hiding it? Here are some intriguing pictures that may just convince you that extraterrestrial beings are already here.

Dead Alien in Russia – A video showing what appears to be an alien corpse was captured by two Russians who shared it on YouTube a decade ago. The rotting corpse was discovered near Lake Baikal in Siberia. With the large black eyes and bulbous head, it has the iconic alien look. Residents say they also found a crashed UFO near the alien corpse. (see below)

Los Angeles UFO – This photo was taken in 1942, shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Early in the morning, someone noticed a UFO in the skies above Los Angeles. Believing that the craft was another Japanese attack, military forces fired over a thousand anti-aircraft shells at it. But somehow, they hit nothing. The flying saucer in the photo is illuminated by multiple military searchlights, and it looks unearthly. The government passed off the event – saying that it was a weather balloon.  (see below)

Boyd Bushman’s Photos – Boyd Bushman was a scientist at the aerospace company Lockheed Martin and at Area 51. After his death, an interview appeared of Bushman where he describes in-depth his interactions with aliens while at Area 51, and revealed the photos like the one above as evidence. Bushman claims that over a dozen aliens are currently working for the US government. Of course, the video has been condemned as a hoax. But others find the photos and interview to be quite real.  (see below)

Martian Petroglyphs – NASA launched the Curiosity Rover on Mars in 2011. On a UFO blog, someone noticed a rock on Mars with a strange etching that looks like petroglyphs inscribed on columns from ancient Egypt. Is this strange carving of a humanoid just a coincidence, or could it be evidence to suggest humanoid aliens had once been on Mars?  (see below)

Hiding Behind the Sun – NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) has been observing the Sun for over a decade. Studying the Sun helps scientists understand the influence of solar flares and the Sun’s magnetic field on the Earth. On UFO Sightings Daily, an image that was captured by the SDO hints at a strange sort of figure or craft that orbits the Sun. Could life or alien technology exist that close to the Sun? (see below)

 

                 Dead Alien in Russia

Are we alone in this vast universe? And even if we aren’t alone, will we ever get to encounter other forms

                    Los Angeles UFO

of life in our galaxy or our planet for that matter? It’s impossible not to wonder about this possibility, because earth just can’t be the only place that harbors sentient life.
We may think we know what’s out there – but the truth is we haven’t even scratched the surface. But could it be possible that aliens are real and have in fact encountered earth? Could the government be hiding it? Here are some intriguing pictures that may just convince you that aliens have already made contact with Earth.

Dead alien in Russia
A video showcasing what appears to be an alien corpse was captured by two Russians who shared it on YouTube nearly a decade ago. The rotting corpse was discovered near Lake Baikal in Siberia.

              Boyd Bushman’s Photos

In the video, the supposed alien seems to be missing a leg along with those large black eyes & bulbous

                 Martian Petroglyphs

head that has been the iconic alien look. The Russian new agency also claims that these residents encountered a crashed UFO nearby the body. Is this a real alien or very well-done special effects?

LA UFO
This photo was taken in 1942 – shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour. Early in the morning, someone

               Hiding Behind the Sun

noticed an unidentified aircraft in the skies above Los Angeles. Initially believed that the aircraft was another attack from the Japanese, military forces fired over a thousand anti-aircraft shells at it.
But somehow, they hit nothing. The flying saucer caught in the photo is illuminated by multiple military searchlights – but it’s impossible to deny that it looks rather unearthly. The government passed off the event – saying that it was likely a weather balloon.

Boyd Bushman’s evidence
Boyd Bushman was a scientist at Lockheed Martin (an aerospace company) and supposedly at Area 51. After his death, an interview appeared of Bushman (or a man claiming to be him) where he unveiled his experience working at Area 51. In the video, he describes in-depth his interactions with aliens and offers photos like the one above as evidence.

More Bushman photos
Bushman’s claims & collection of photographs are wild. For example, he claims that over a dozen aliens are currently working for the U.S. government. Of course, the video has been condemned as a hoax – some saying that these photos are unconvincing. However, others find the interview and the photos to be realistic – truly believing aliens are real.
