An event titled: “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us,” on Facebook, that has seen over 250,000 people pledge participation, with another 250,000 people checking off as ‘interested’ plan to raid Area 51 in Nevada to “see them aliens.”
The group of alien hunters plans to convene at 3 AM on September 20 near the top-secret US Air Force base, called Area 51, in southern Nevada.
So how will all these alien hunters storm such a well guarded military facility? They believe that their sheer numbers will make them unstoppable.
Technically known as Homey Airport, its primary purpose remains classified. Area 51 is a remote outpost of the larger Edwards Air Force Base that is located roughly 120 miles from Las Vegas. In 1955, the area was chosen by the Central intelligence agency (CIA) as a testing site for the then-secret Lockheed U-2 high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft.
What goes on or has gone on at Area 51 is still shrouded in secrecy. As such, it has been the subject of conspiracy theories for decades. It wasn’t until 2013 that the CIA declassified documents that detailed the history of the U-2 aircraft and the OXCART projects, and in doing so, officially acknowledged the existence of Area 51.
Still, there are numerous rumors and theories about what the true purpose of Area 51 is. Here are a few:
The Facebook group of alien hunters believe that if all half-million people show up, the Air Force wouldn’t be able to stop their overwhelming numbers. One plan is to throw pebbles. That’s right – pebbles.
Another plan suggests that the Air Force would need at least 500,000 bullets to stop them all from getting in. It is safe to say that the Air Force can probably stand up to the challenge. But would they really gun down all those people? Of course not.
However, these alien hunters are forgetting some of the very conspiracy theories associated with Area 51. If the government has developed psychotronic energy weapons there, they would easily be able to disable the huge crowd.
Let’s not forget what isn’t conspiracy theory… The government has developed numerous nonlethal weapons, and they are certainly something you don’t want to have used on you.
There’s the already well-known Active Denial System (ADS) which was specifically designed for crowd control, perimeter security and area denial.
They could also choose to use “directed energy weapons” such as sonic weapons, electromagnetic weapons, weapons that use light and repetitive visual signals and others that can cause disorientation, nausea, difficulty breathing, pain, vertigo, vection or visual sensory illusions, motion sickness, induce epileptic seizures and others.
