How Did Area 51 Become The Site Of Alien Conspiracy Theories?

  • 5 years ago
Area 51 has been the focal point of alien conspiracy theories in America for decades.
The remote military base in the Nevada desert has a lot of history.
It has been associated with aliens almost since its inception.
In 1954, President Eisenhower authorized the development of a top secret, high-altitude recon aircraft program.
It required a remote location that wasn't easily accessible to civilians or spies and Area 51 fit the bill perfectly.
