Area 51 and Roswell
Area 51 might just be the most well known conspiracy theory in modern history. Area 51 is a location in the Nevada Testing Range that is operated by the US Air Force. It has a history of association with experimental aircraft and black-ops. Among these sketchy programs, it is believed that Area 51 is a hub of research and testing of alien lifeforms. It is often tied into the Roswell theories which speculate that an alien craft landed in this area of New Mexico in 1947. The US military’s official stance on the Roswell incident is that the craft that made ground was nothing more than a weather balloon. That sent the HAARP conspiracy folks into orbit. You just can’t please everyone.
