  1. 1. AREA 51 Source:;init:.bmp
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION <ul><li>Area 51 is said to be a U.S. military facility dedicated to the development and testing of aircraft. However, it is thought (or hoped) to be a centre for top-secret UFO and supernatural research </li></ul><ul><li>The site is disclaimed as the place where the U.S. Military develops, tests and trains new aircraft (U-2, Blackbird and F-117). It is also affiliated with the development of experimental weapons systems </li></ul><ul><li>Followers of its supernatural connotations believe in theories ranging from extraterrestrial encounters to a faked lunar landing to the development of teleportation </li></ul><ul><li>The truth about the activity behind Area 51’s high-security gates is subjective and almost impossible to prove. However, its secrecy has spawned a sub-culture of UFO followers and has made the otherwise boring, dried-up lake a U.S. landmark </li></ul><ul><li>Source: </li></ul>
