Area 51′s Top Secret Man: Edward J. Ruppelt
One of the mysterious facilities in the U.S. is the site called Area 51, located near Las Vegas, Nevada. Whatever lies inside this facility is unknown to the eye of the public. In fact, many have tried to pull the curtain but they went unsuccessful. The stringent security at the facility makes it harmful for anyone who wants to trespass.
But for the man named Edward J. Ruppelt, information about secrets at Area 51 might be transparent. Ruppelt worked as an Air Force Officer of the United States from 1953 to 1959. He spearheaded the agency’s project Blue Book and wrote a very controversial book in 1956. Ruppelt is claimed to be knowledgeable of the confidential activities in the Las Vegas facility, attributing to his work as an investigator of incidents related to UFO appearances. He was highly appreciated by the agency for converting his unorganized public office into a much improved Air Force division.
The Blue Book project started as a one-man mission under officer James Rogers. It then became an operation consisting of ten people with an aim to investigate unusual activities similar to that of Area 51. UFO sightings are already common in 1950s. The number of witnesses never came low as claims continue to exist. This has also fueled the growing interest in Ruppelt’s controversial book, whose copies became in demand after his death in 1960 due to heart attack.
