The Real Story Behind the Myth of Area 51

The Real Story Behind the Myth of Area 51 There are no aliens at America's most famous top-secret military base, but what is there is just as interesting. In the middle of the barren Nevada desert, there's a dusty unmarked road that leads to the front gate of Area 51. It's protected by little more than a chain link fence, a boom gate, and intimidating trespassing signs. One would think that America's much mythicized top secret military base would be under closer guard, but make no mistake. They are watching. Beyond the gate, cameras see every angle.

Claudia Figueroa of AZ Cactus Experts, a company that sells, straightens, removes and prunes cacti, told KSAZ the driver was lucky he wasn't killed.

"I saw the picture. That was so bad," she told the station. "I have never seen something like that before, but that can kill the person that was driving, and yea, they don't have to be too big to cause a lot of damage. That one right there, it could be one ton or 1,000 pounds."
