Area 51 has been the place full of mysterious things about government secrets on extraterrestrials. The Smithsonian-affiliated National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas will hold the very first Area 51 exhibit on March 26, 2012. It is expected that the exhibition will showcase UFO and extraterrestrial-related items.
The exhibit titled “Area 51: Myth or Reality” will try to explain the history of the place which has long been surrounded with controversial and interesting stories.
CEO and executive director of the museum Alan Palmer said that CIA has released records on Area 51 between late ‘60s and early ‘70s and the exhibition will present them to the public.
Now that they know more about the place, Palmer said that they feel it is their obligation to share the real stories happening beyond public’s knowledge.
UFO conspiracy theorists have claimed that there is a secret U.S. military facility in Nevada dessert examining recovered flying saucers. The issue is fueled by people who claimed to have witnessed UFO hovering above the mountain that surround an actual military base near Groom Lake, located about 80 miles north of Las Vegas.
It is now widely known that U-2 and other Cold War spy planes were developed and tested at the base. Reputable news journalist George Knapp of KLAS-TV revealed the alleged alien technology at Area 51 in 1989.
Bob Lazar, who claimed to work as a physicist at one of the areas of the base known as Sector Four or S-4, met Knapp in 1989. Lazar alleged that several studies of alien spacecraft took place in this military facility. He said that the main objective of the study is to do reverse-engineering of alien technology to understand how it worked.
Prior to the revelation made by Knapp through the statement of Lazar, the public did not hear the existence of S-4.
The National Atomic Testing Museum decided to present both stories of people who claimed to work in Area 51 and speculative reports regarding extraterrestrials.
Knapp is being asked to take part of the exhibition because of his key role in disclosing detailed information of what is known the secret military facility. Knapp will have a special room exclusively for his collections including several documents, artifacts, films, photos and videos to be presented during the opening of the exhibition.
Knapp said that he obtained some unusual materials from the UFO that crashed in Mount Izvestkovaya, also regarded as Height 611, in 1986. Some called the crash as Russian Roswell, relating to it to the famous alleged crash of alien spacecraft in Roswell, New Mexico in which many believe the cover-up was made.
Many other things related to extraterrestrial secrets will be presented on the exhibition and the public has a chance to see them and then decide for themselves.
