Area 51

Located near Groom Lake in Nevada, Area 51 is part of Edwards Air Force Base. Although it is reported that the base is used for experimental aircraft development, American folklore is full of alien and UFO stories that are associated with this base. Other conspiracy theories link Area 51 to government control of the weather and the location of a one world government.

When did area 51 take place?

'Area 51' is in reality a US government facility in Nevada, about 83 miles northwest of Las Vegas. As part of the Nellis AFB built in 1941, it's designated purpose is the development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapons systems which includes restricted airspace. The suspicion that the government had also been hiding more than military secrets began in 1955 when the CIA designated additional land area to test the U-2 and the Dept. of Interior withdrew and additional 60 sq. mile rectangle of land beneath the airspace in 1958. The speculation went into high gear in 1989 when a Las Vegas TV station broadcast a series of interviews with a self-proclaimed aerospace engineer, Robert Lazar, who said that he had been hired to help examine an alien spacecraft at the facility. He claimed that the government had recovered an extraterrestrial spacecraft which it kept stored in an underground bunker. That's how the whole thing started and since Mr. Lazar's interviews, there has been no end to the stories and speculation involving Area 51 and the surrounding area.

Is there such a place as Area 51?

Yes. Area 51 is located in the southern part of the east central area of the Nellis Air Force Test Range. Area 51 (so named because of its designation on a BLM topographical map) was a secret military test facility located on the Groom Lake Dry Lake Bed area, built after World War II. Famous aircraft, including the U-2, SR-71, F-117 Nighthawk (Stealth Fighter), and the B-2 were all flight tested there prior to activation for military and civilian use. The base has had many nicknames over the years, including the title Watertown. You can view the base from Google maps, though you may not see much activity in the shots as they shut the base down whenever a photographing satellite passes overhead. You may spot some interesting structures throughout the dessert facility though. Initial Radar cross-section tests were performed there on the F-117's initial design - the results were so astonishing that the program was immediately classified above Top Secret, code named "Have Blue", and existence of the program and its capabilities limited to only a handful of key personnel. As stated by former head Ben Rich, in his book about the Lockheed Skunk Works, which built the plane, the radar operator during the Groom Lake facility testing, who was doing the first tests on the first F-117 model initially believed there was an equipment malfunction, as there was no radar data coming back from the model. It wasn't until a bird landed on the model and reflected radar waves back that the officers in charge of the test fully realized the significance of the design - virtual radar invisibility. The USAF/US Navy's Foreign Technology Division within DoD also regularly used the Groom Lake facilities to test and evaluate captured Soviet aircraft. (Reportedly) The Groom Lake facility was recently "closed" however, without any notification to the public. Though not confirmed, the reason is believed to be one that was unforeseen during the Atomic Bomb tests of the '50's in that area -seepage of underground radiation to the surface, making it even more dangerous to work there. Other speculation is that toxic waste from exotic propellants and other classified material which was routinely burned there has caused the area to become an extreme toxic waste hazard. Either way, the area was (supposedly) no longer safe for human operations. The recent satellite images still seem to show the place in use though. In addition, even though for years the facility was routinely denied as existing by the Government, even though it could be see from afar and photographed, a now famous civilian satellite hi-resolution photograph took pictures of the facilities there in detail. It wasn't long after that the military did acknowledge the base did exist, but clearly plans have been underway to move the facilities and operations to another area of Nevada that is even more remote and secretive than Area 51. One day we may know where the new facility is, but I'm sure it's in a very remote area. The military have many remote facilities in order to keep safe and secret the new technologies they develop for war. Or at least, that is what we hope is true. Unfortunately, any large human organization tends to corruption, so who knows what really goes on in any facility. Other facilities used for government secret projects in the nearby states are the Las Alamos Labs, Edwards Air Force Base, The Antelope Valley, and the Tahachapi Mountains in California. And there are many more. If you are curious, just search. The truth is always waiting to be found. Answer Yes there is. Area 51 is a top secret restricted Military Base situated at Groom Lake Navada. There are many signs that says there is no trespassing. Also, sometimes you can go on a image search engine and if you type in "Area 51" or "Area 51 sattelite photo" you will be able to see pictures of it. Last time I checked, Area 51 is so public now that you can get the coordinates to it. Aha. But don't even think about going there. Military personnel are authorized to shoot trespassers on sight.

Area 51 does not exist, it is not on any maps, has been denied by the US Government and does not contain any aliens. It's a top secret location known only by a few high ranking officers and the President. So it's not in Nevada - 27 miles south of the small town of Rachel NV. See related link for a image of the not existing area.

How many people have seen a UFO?

User Avatar
There are numerous reports of people seeing a UFO. Unfortunately, too many to keep an accurate track of. According to the first United Nations international statistics report on the UFO phenomena in 1978, five percent of all Americans, more than fifteen million people, claimed to have seen a UFO. The UFO statistics registered only 1.2 percent of these cases. Then, a USA Gallop poll in 1996 showed the number jumped dramatically to 12% (roughly thirty-six million citizens specifically in the United States) of people who claimed to have seen a UFO. The Global number was then added up to about 50,000,000 (million) people. Since then, reports have been getting better and more numerous. The "claims" of sightings from polls seem more or less the same in number, however. There's no way to be certain; statistics vary slightly from each place. Photo and video recordings of UFO's have undoubtedly increased significantly, due to the much larger number of owned digital cameras and implementation of cameras in every day devices. Along with the rise of technology of course also comes the rise inevitable fakes and hoaxes, but there is no way to cancel out a particular percentage. For the moment, keeping track of the number of UFO sightings remains quite difficult. It's now expected be around 100,000,000 Worldwide today (in 2010). In 1946, there was a surprising 2,000 reports, collected primarily by the Swedish military along with isolated reports from France, Portugal, Italy and Greece. Around then, more reports, claims and documentations starting being recorded for each year and have been counting up since. The termination of Project Blue Book by the U.S.A.F. in 1969 left it with a collection of over 12,618 reports, with 22% of all cases, particularly the better-documented ones, remaining officially unsolved. In 1978, United Nations statistics claimed that there were over 63,144 reported UFO sightings worldwide between 1947 and 1978. The US Air Force investigated over 1,147 UFO sighting reports between 1948 and 1952. Their results showed 25% remained unexplained. The results of the top-secret UFO study, Project Condign, by the British Government's D.I.S. were compiled into a 400-page document that drew on approximately 10,000 sightings and reports that had been gathered by Defense Intelligence between 1997 and 2000. In 2007, France became one of the first countries to open its files on UFOs when the national space agency unveiled a website documenting more than 1600 sightings spanning five decades. Of the 1600 cases registered since 1954, nearly 25% were also classified as "type D", meaning that "despite good or very good data and credible witnesses, we are confronted with something we can't explain". Their National Space Studies Center (CNES) attracted so many visitors that it crashed their website within 3 hours. In Canada, a total of 9500 digitized documents spanning the years 1947 to the early 1980s were made available through the Library and Archives website. They first began to release the files in October 2007, where they quickly increased to its present level. Canada therefore also joins the select group of countries that have so far publicly released UFO files through government sponsored websites. The difference between these files and the releases by other countries is the. inclusion of departmental analysis rather than simply reports of the sightings. The Brazilian Government also declassified a set of previously secret UFO documents in 2009, this time covering the 80s after their releases of the 50s, 60s and 70s, all with very significant documents and information. So far over 4,000 pages have been disclosed. Russia did the same in July of 2009, except their reports varied slightly. "Fifty percent of UFO encounters are connected with oceans. Fifteen more - with lakes. So UFOs tend to stick to the water" - Vladimir Azhazha, former NAVY officer and popular UFO researcher. Water U.O.'s are commonly known, especially around the Bermudas, Caribbean Sea and the deepest parts of the Atlantic Ocean. In 2010, following the series of these international UFO sighting disclosures, the New Zealand government also joined the party and made public over 2,000 pages of UFO eyewitness accounts dating back to 1952. "Since the Freedom of Information Act arrived in 2005, this subject - UFOs - have become the third-most popular subject for people to write to the Ministry of Defence saying 'please could you release this file, or papers that you hold on this particular case'. - Dr David Clarke, National Archives UFO consultant, quote to the BBC in August 2010. The latest batch of UFO files released from the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defence to the National Archives shows that, in 1957, the committee received reports detailing an average of one UFO sighting a week. The hard part about gathering a number now is that most of the UFO files from that period had been destroyed. Many of the world governments in recent years have declassified hundreds of thousands of pages worth of UFO reports, as you can see. Demand definitely seems on the rise, as more people believe in the Alien-UFO phenomenon now than ever before. Other countries who have Disclosed or are Disclosing UFO Documents include Australia, Mexico, Spain, Chile, Sweden, Italy, Ireland, Peru, Finland and Uruguay. The only long-term, randomly-sampled information on how many UFO's are seen were in a series of Gallup opinion polls administered from 1966 to 1990. Unfortunately, these polls used slightly different terminology and in some years ruined the lead-in by preceding questions linking UFO's with extraterrestrial life. Also note the confusion of the questions commonly phrased, where "unidentified" may not be self-contained enough since on further observation or thought, one may conclude that what they saw was something identifiable in the end. Regardless, for what they're worth (typical error plus/minus 3%): Gallup Poll, May 1966: Have you, yourself, ever seen anything you thought was a flying saucer? - 5% Gallup Poll, November 1973: Have you, yourself, ever seen anything you thought was a UFO? - 11% Gallup Poll, May 1978: Have you, yourself, ever seen anything you thought was a UFO? - 10% Gallup Poll, May 1978: Have you ever seen anything you thought was a UFO? - 9% Gallup Poll, August 1990: Have you, yourself, ever seen anything you thought was a UFO? - 14% CNN/Time Poll, June 1997: Have you (personally) ever seen a UFO - 8% AP Poll, October 2007: Have seen a UFO - 14% About all you can say from this is that the number of people in the U.S.A. who have seen a UFO (that they still consider unidentified) is probably 5% to 8%. For lack of any other data, if one combines the two data sources, and apply the ratio from the CNN poll to the Roper Poll, and then compare it with the actual reports, you have, for the United States: Type --- Ever Seen --- Reported --- Ratio Seen:Reported All ------ 8% ------------ 0.0178% --- 450 NL/DD - 4.5% --------- 0.0138% ---- 330 CE1 ---- 2.5% --------- 0.0016% --- 1500 CE2 ---- 0.5% --------- 0.0007% --- 700 CE3/4 - 0.5% --------- 0.0017% ---- 300 With that, it seems that at most only 1 in 450 UFO sightings results in a report, a commonly known manner taken by people such as pilots who reportedly see strange things in the sky all the time but hardly ever bother to make a report unless it's an extreme case, either due to the inconvenience, potential ridicule or management warnings. The comparison of the ratio of the different types of sighting in the derived seen versus reported data indicates that the reports do indeed represent a pretty good cross-section of experiences. over the 60-year history of UFO's, there is no obvious trend in the poll numbers for numbers seen, which means the phenomena, whether mental or actual, occurs at a constant rate and rare rate, so that the same percentage of people believe they have seen something in 1966 as 2007, even though over half of the people alive in 1966 and responding to the poll have since passed on, replaced by people who were not taking polls or even born in 1966. To put it another day, on any particular evening there are around 1000 sightings of UFO's around the USA, including 100 close encounters with the objects (CE1 or 2), 80 encounters with "humanoids" (CE3), and 15 "abductions". Luke Ford You can read a list of thousands of user submitted UFO reports by country on the ufoinfo site. If you think you've seen something related, you may wish to report it there first. If UFO is defined as a flying machine engineered by beings from another planet, then the answer is 0. If UFO is defined as an unidentified flying object, the answer is millions.

The only way it would work (long term) to install a speedy sleeve is if the crank had a small groove in it from the old seal. These sleeves are designed to overcome that problem, not chipping or any other damage. They will work for a seal groove but they can be tricky to install. You might have to buy more than one to get it all the way on without crushing it. Take your time and be careful and follow the directions to the letter.

What happens if you get walked?

User Avatar
In baseball statistics, a base on balls (BB), better known as a walk, is credited to a batter and against a pitcher when a batter receives four pitches that the umpire calls balls. It is called a "walk" because the batter is then entitled to walk to first base, or more specifically (as defined in the rules of baseball) he is "entitled to first base without liability to be put out." Any baserunner who is forced advances as well. Receiving a base on balls does not count as an official at bat for a batter but does count as a plate appearance. A pitcher can also choose to intentionally walk a batter. This is usually done for the purpose of facing a different batter that the team feels they have a better chance of getting out, or to allow a double play possibility if first base is open with less than two outs. A hit by pitch is not considered a walk, though the consequences are often the same for both.

You need to till up the area and place good soil down to level out area after you have tilled it. Make sure it level for prper drainage. Then as you place the new sod down you need to pull at the ends of each sheet of sod to allow it to want regrowth. Make sure when you lay it down you lay it where ther is no gap in-between.

Do people begin to go downhill physically or biologically after age 21?

User Avatar
The human can go into decline at any age. The factors that determine decline are nutrition, disease and body maintenance. If nutrition is not good, the body will go into decline (at any age). If a disease process is in effect, the body can go into decline (at any age). If the body is not given proper maintenance, the body will go into decline (at any age). It is common to see body decline with aging, but that effect takes place generally in the 40s. However, people in their 40s can actively improve nutrition, body maintenance and avoid disease process, thus minimizing body decline.

If there aren't any, then why are they being so secretive? What do you mean by "secretive"? If they have no aliens or alien debris, what are they supposed to say except "we don't have any"! They have other secrets to keep; never been any reason to think aliens are among them. As it says below, "the only thing the government could say and be listened to, is that aliens and alien spacecraft are real... and there is no scientific reason to think this is the case." ___________________________________________________ Of course not. No aliens are known and proven to exist, let alone have the tech and poor taste to come here. Just a bunch of tall tales. ---------------------------------------- yes there are aliens in area 51 according to rumors. But the government never tells you what its doing in that forsaken place. Its O.K. , they all have green cards. ------------------------------- No, there are not UFO's in area 51. Im tired of people saying there is aliens and ufo's in area 51 just because the Government doesn't let us in. They dont let us in because they don't want foreign countries to know what kind of technology we are working on not because they are hiding aliens. --------------------------------- We don't know. There have been some alleged "whistle blowers" who claim (without proof) to have worked at Area 51, such as Bob Lazar, who claimed that they back engineered alien craft. Some others claim to have seen captured aliens at Area 51. What is more possible, is that dead alien bodies that have been recovered from various crash sites have been stored in Area 51. These bodies would come from such famous crashes such as Roswell, if they really occurred. Until the US government clearly discloses all that they know about UFO's and aliens, we will probably never know. Until we hear otherwise, we have the choice to be skeptical or to be open-minded to the fact that there may be aliens in Area 51. Actually, being skeptical is not being close-minded. It just means you are picky about believing things that aren't proven... like anything UFO buffs say about Area 51, a place they have never set foot in. Lazar has provided no proof that he has, either. It doesn't do the government a bit of good to reveal all it knows about UFOs. They spent untold time and money tracking down Project MOGUL, HIGH DIVE and EXCELSIOR data, which were clearly and obviously the source of the Roswell myth. Rather than accept this, grow wiser, and move on, the UFObuffs simply ignored the fact that Roswell, as an alien crash event, has been completely disproven. This argues strongly that the only thing the government could say and be listened to, is that aliens and alien spacecraft are real... and there is no scientific reason to think this is the case. I suspect that if the government ever said UFOs were alien spacecraft, people would stop believing that UFOs are alien spacecraft. It has become "cool" and "trendy" to pretend the government never tells the truth, although *always* lying would make the truth of any given notion obvious. That is why we have historically and ballistically ignorant people pretending Oswald was innocent. That is why we have astronomically and photographically ignorant people believing Apollo was a hoax. That is why we have Al Qaeda apologists trying to push the blame for bin Ladin's admitted 9/11 actions, against the government victimized by those actions. And that is why there are those who will believe every blob of light in the sky is a spaceship from the planet Koozbane, until the government says so.
