Area 51 is strange for a number of reasons, but one of the most glaring reasons it’s odd is so obvious we often can’t see it. It’s known as a secret, but it’s the opposite. It hasn’t been a secret since the 1950s, and even then it was a bit of a open government secret shrouded in mysterious coverups that have now been blasted apart. Whether you are a believer in alien stories or not, Area 51 has definitely invaded our imaginations to stay.
