Conspiracy Theory: Area 51

This Article was written by Claudio Paes De Almeida Neto, Year 9


Aliens: Something that everybody wants to see, yet nobody has any proof of their existence. However, some people speculate that aliens are actually already on Earth and some say they are being held in an American government ...welcome to Area 51:



Area 51 is a government base in Nevada. The US government has 800 military bases, however area 51 is the one that stands out from them all. The place gained awareness with the internet famous meme of “Storm Area 51;” an idea in which people would raid and enter area 51, running with their arms stretched on their backs ("Naruto running," as some people called it.) This didn’t actually happen- and only a few people actually showed up (I confess; I woke up early on the day of the raid, purely to wait for the countdown & yes, I regretted it when I saw that it was 'cancelled.')

But the myths still remain…


Some people started creating theories as to why Area 51 was so secretive. These people believe that the base, as said before, holds down extraterrestrial beings that have come to Earth. Maybe for experiments or maybe it’s just a prison for them... who knows?

Everybody has strong beliefs on 'aliens' and many people who believe that aliens exist would, presumably also assume that they stay somewhere. They arguably found A51(my personal nickname for it) to be a fitting place.



The whole area of Nevada, however, has been impacted by “aliens” and the supposed theories of Area 51.There are many items and places that reference aliens.There is a place called “Alien Research Center”, and the “Area 51 Alien Center.” Other places like the “Aliens R us” and the small store “E-T Fresh Jerky” who, as you probably guessed, sells 'alien” beef jerky's'(one costumer of the store even said “Prices high, but heck, we’re in Alien country!”) So, It’s safe to say that Area 51 has left quite a mark and remembrance in Nevada too!
