So Independence Day might not have been too far off after all! After years of speculation, the CIA has begun publicly acknowledging Area 51's existence. According to a CIA report obtained by George Washington University's National Security Archive, Area 51 served as a testing site for tools and weapons.
Just like the 1996 Will Smith movie depicts, Area 51 is a located in the desert of Nevada however there is one major difference: according to the recently released reports, there are no aliens at the secretive government test site.
The reports make no mention of aliens, crashed spaceships or anything else extraterrestrial.
Sorry, science fiction fans. Keep the theories coming.
