First of all, what is Area 51? We all have heard of it, whether we want to express this knowledge or not. Once you’re breathing air for the past couple of decades, Area 51 is a name that have been used in so many different situations. To express the craziness of someone’s claims about anything, not even related to aliens, or maybe someone’s impossible search for something, coming across as an Area 51 (or not, I could be making all of these claims up). The point is, it’s known. It’s even probably known to many that Area 51 has some correlation with Roswell. But, what is Roswell, where is it? Why does it have a connection with Area 51? Well, even more people can detail that Roswell was the infamous area of the alien aircraft crashing, and all the evidence is currently or supposedly, being stored at Area 51.
But what’s the reality? Area 51 is actually a military base that is located in the southern regions of Nevada. It is believed that Area 51, isn’t an airbase but rather a facility that’s a highly classified military special defense base, for the SAP, Special Access Program. Although these claims have not been verified by the U.S government.
All in all, Area 51 is as real of a place as anything and as real of a mystery to the masses. Upon approaching Area 51 and it’s surroundings, are signs that display it as a Restricted Area and not only that but photography of any type, is prohibited and deadly force is authorized. I am sure it’s not just me, but with that kind of warning, there must be something of great importance that needs to be kept a secret. Of course, this is where a lot of the UFO and other alien related conspiracy theories stem from. The great secrecy of Area 51.
Not clearly observed by the image, the word for word warning is as follows:
It is unlawful to enter this area without
permission of the Installation Commander.
Sec. 21, Internal Security Act of 1950; 50 U.S.C.797

Now the Roswell connection with Area 51 starts back in 1947, where reports of an extra-terrestrial aircraft along with its passengers crashed in Roswell, New Mexico. On July 8th 1947, Walter Haut, who is the public information officer for the Roswell Army Airfield provided a report to the media that the men of the 509th Bomb Group had recovered a crashed flying disk. Walter Haut’s report was the first provided to the media. Following his report, it was then communicated to the media, that it wasn’t an extra-terrestrial aircraft that was recovered but a satellite balloon, given by Roger M. Ramey.
It’s is extremely interesting that a public information officer, would make a press release of a recovery of an alien aircraft, to only have the Commanding General of the 8th air force, retract the statement and claim it was something completely different.
What makes this story even more interesting, is the fact that nearly 30 years later, Jesse Marcel, one of the original personnel to recover the UFO (which to them is identified, but is being used loosely in this article) debris, claimed that he believed that there was a military cover up of the discovery of an alien aircraft that crashed in Rosewell, New Mexico back in 1947.
