Recently a man created a Facebook page called "storm area 51, they can't stop us all, let's see them aliens" and over 2 million people said they're coming to the event on 20th of September. It started as a joke but got serious and the air force warned people not to go there. But, what is really there? Aliens? UFOs?
History of area 51:
In the early 1950s the US sent recon planes to the USSR but due to their low level they could have been spotted or shot down.
in 1954 the president started a project to create a high altitude advanced aircraft, they named it project aquatone, they needed a place that isn't easily accessible to civilians. Area 51 was the perfect location to start that project since it was in the middle of the Nevada desert, and it served in WW2 as a gunnery range.
In the summer of 1955 sightings of "UFOs" meaning:"undefined flying objects" were reported around area 51. That's because the air force started it's testing of the U-2 aircraft. The U-2 can fly higher than 600,000 feet. At the time normal aircrafts flew in the range of 10,000 or 20,000 feet, and military aircrafts flew in the range of 40,000 feet. So if a pilot spotted the U-2 he would have no idea what it was.
While military officials knew many of the UFO sightings were U-2 Aircrafts they couldn't really tell the public.
Could there be really aliens in area 51?
Could it have been that there was really UFOs around that area but the military made up the U-2 story to hide it from the public? In 1997 a man who claimed to work in area 51 talked on the radio and said that he saw aliens and they're planning to kill most of the population so they can control the rest. Others claimed to be abducted near area 51. So the possibility of aliens existing there is still something to consider.
Can they "stop us all"?
The state of Nevada has only 3 million people. If we add more 2 million people the traffic would be very rushed. And I don't think they can make it to area 51. If they did make it however there is guards that are patrolling the area 24/7. If they sneak all the guards or kill them, they have to find the area. The area is surrounded by a huge restricted area. The area itself is very small. If they made it there they might die of skinless without proper tools since the place is more like a chemical laboratory. But if they overcame all these obstacles could they really see aliens? Hopefully we will know!
