Conspiracy? Area 51In southern Nevada, there exists a 575 square mile block of land that goes by many names: The Box, Paradise Ranch, Groom Lake, Watertown Strip and Dreamland. But most refer to this mysterious region as Area 51. Since the late 1950’s the skies above Dreamland have been home to an array of unidentified flying objects. Locals here know that sightings of curios lights and other unexplained phenomena are commonplace. In 1989, the revelations of Bob Lazar, a Las Vegas resident, brought the strange goings-on at Area 51 to a national audience. He claimed to have amazing inside information on the stark terrain 90 miles north of Las Vegas. Known as Area 51, this outpost is one of the most mysterious locations on the face of the earth, that until recently the government denied its existence.
Lazar wasn’t the first to claim that something out of the ordinary was happening at Area 51. Rumors about UFO sightings in the Nevada desert had been spreading for years. For those who defend Lazar and his accounts of testing UFO’s explains the extreme security over the military base. For those who discount his revelations believe there is a more plausible reason why the government had been keeping the activities at Area 51 from the general public. The base, built at the height of the Cold War, housed advanced military testing of cutting edge aviation technology. The secrecy wasn’t to keep the American public in the dark, but to keep Russians from spying on secret testing of this technology. Frequent sightings of these advanced planes may have been the source of the UFO sightings and experts assert that the government may have perpetuated these theories to disguise the their real activities.

And last but not least KLAS-TV, the CBS affiliate in Las Vegas. I-Team Investigative Reporter George Knapp, Nevada's best-known journalist, is the guy who first broke the UFO tales back in 1989, and broke the story of Bob Lazar. The UFO stories changed Area 51 forever, and spawned all sorts of spin-offs. For 20-plus years, Knapp has investigated and reported on many subjects, but outside of Las Vegas, he is probably best known to the general public for his work on various anomalous phenomena.
