Area 51


area-52The show investigates the Dugway Proving Ground, a remote military testing facility near Dugway, Utah, and examine the reports of UFO activity that has surrounded the site for the past 10 years — leading some UFO watchers to dub it “Area 52″ and “The New Area 51.”

Dugway’s mission is to test, implement US and Allied biological and chemical weapon defense systems in a secure and isolated environment. DPG also serves as a facility for US Army Reserve and US National Guard maneuver training, and US Air Force flight tests–mostly from nearby Hill Air Force Base in Ogden. DPG is controlled by the United States Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC). The area has also been used by Army special forces for training in preparation for deployments to the War in Afghanistan and alien environments, including Colombia and Mars.

In March 1968, 6,249 sheep died in Skull Valley, an area nearly thirty miles from Dugway’s testing sites. When examined, the sheep were found to have been poisoned by an organophosphate chemical. The sickening of the sheep, known as the Dugway sheep incident, coincided with several open-air tests of the nerve agent VX at Dugway. Local attention focused on the Army, which initially denied that VX had caused the deaths, instead blaming the local use of organophosphate pesticides on crops. Necropsies conducted on the dead sheep later definitively identified the presence of VX. The Army never admitted liability, but did pay the ranchers for their losses. On the official record, the claim was for 4,372 “disabled” sheep, of which about 2,150 were either killed outright by the VX exposure or were so critically injured that they needed to be euthanized on-site by veterinarians. Another 1,877 sheep were “temporarily” injured, or showed no signs of injury but were not marketable due to their potential exposure. All of the exposed sheep that survived the initial exposure were eventually euthanized by the ranchers, since even the potential for exposure had rendered the sheep permanently unsalable for either meat or wool.

The incident, coinciding with the birth of the environmental movement and anti-Vietnam War protests, created an uproar in Utah and the international community. The incident also starkly underscored the inherent unpredictability of air-dispersal of chemical warfare agents, as well as the extreme lethality of next-generation persistent nerve agents at even extremely low concentrations.

Following the public attention drawn to Area 51 in the early 1990s, UFOlogists and concerned citizens have suggested that whatever covert operations, if any, may have been underway at that location were subsequently transferred to DPG.

The Deseret News reported that Dave Rosenfeld, president of Utah UFO Hunters, stated:
” “Numerous UFOs have been stored and reported in the area in and around Dugway…[military aircraft can't account for] all the unknowns seen in the area. It might be that our star visitors are keeping an eye on Dugway too…[Dugway is] the new area 51. And probably the new military spaceport.

area-51-interviewInteresting video interview by government officials about Area 51 and UFOs from 1997.

paul-h-utzPaul H. Utz talks about his father, Paul A. Utz, who worked as a high-level engineer in Area 51 and had a “Q” clearance. His father had always claimed that he was an Optical Engineer working in Area 51, but on a meeting outside the US he told his son that he was actually working on a new kind of energy source. This testimony is included, in part, to show the devastating effects of secrecy on individuals and their families.

On a recent road trip to the Las Vegas area, my curiosity for unusual roadside attractions led me North on Highway 375. The highway is notorious for reports of strange lights and UFOs due to its close proximity to legendary Area 51. My intentions were merely bragging rights for having driven the famous “ET Highway,” as well as souvenirs from the equally famous “Little A’Le’Inn.”
Mission accomplished, I doubled back on the desolate (and now dark) road to civilization. Very uneventful drive for the most part, but the video shows things became more interesting as I approached the end of the stretch of road. First of all…I’m still not convinced in the whole “visitor” thing. So what was this I was viewing? I have spent hours researching the area; maps, videos, images. I am completely baffled! The lights are too perfectly aligned to match any of the terrain in the area. No matter what I saw (which probably wasn’t aliens), I cannot deny that it was an awesome spectacle…and the most appropriate location!

 

area-51-declasifiedWe discuss the recently re-released CIA documents that mention Area 51 by name. We also discuss alleged UFOs over a swimming pool in Florida. That and other space and UFO news on this episode of Spacing Out!

area-51-warningInterviews with FOIA expert John Greenewald and Allan Palmer, Executive Director of the National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas, where they have an Area 51 exhibit and host UFO lectures.

The National Security Archive website released a document on August 15 titled The Central Intelligence Agency and Overhead Reconnaissance: The U-2 and OXCART Programs, 1954-1974 by agency historians Gregory Pedlow and Donald Welzenbach. A heavily edited version of this document was previously published in 1992 and 1998. This less redacted version was released in response to freedom of information act requests made in 2005 for a mandatory declassification. This release is notable for the significant amount of newly declassified material with respect to the U-2 and the official acknowledgement of Area 51.

area-51-area-s4There have been de-classified a report of about 350 pages about Area 51 by the CIA. Unfortunately there are no data about Alien spacecraft or little green men in the reports. However there are many informations of the history and development of the Area 51 as well as the testing and engineering of U-2 spy planes.

area-51-pyramidWe have found this amazing video footage that discovered a pyramid inside the Area 51. You can also se that near the pyramid there are two hovering crafts.
What do you think about this video?

triangle-shape-ufo-area-51New video footage of apparently new generation of secret military triangle – shaped aircraft that looks lika na UFO. It’s absolutely silent.

It’s rare that a story like this falls in your lap but when it does it’s always nice. This was awesome to see this take place but now the question of where did it come from and where did it go are looming over us and also why was this plane here This top secret test plane was dead silent, I think they were testing some type of silent propulsion. Everyone I have called is denying this planes existence, Military Bases, FAA, DHS, Local ATC, Law Enforcement so what’s the real story behind this plane.

Witness said:
Awesome footage of some kind of triangular silent ship whizzing by my house the red light on this craft is the front of the craft, it came almost directly toward me then slowed and spun then headed North East, at it’s closest point it was almost directly over me and only a few hundred feet up it was very sleek smaller than most I’ve seen and silent as usual. It did have a few unusual features that may be new editions to this smaller sleeker craft. I tried tracking it with the telescope and film with the camera at the same time but the telescope would not keep up with it. I did manage to catch a few frames here and there and they will be in a follow up video analysis of this ship. There is no strobe on this craft as required and the entire lighting is wrong for a plane or helicopter, the red light should be on the wing if it is a plane and a strobe in front none of this is there.
