For years, conspiracy theorists have believed that the remains of crashed UFO spacecrafts are stored at Area 51, an Air Force base about 242 km from Las Vegas. It is believed that US government scientists reverse-engineer highly advanced technology in the labs. Apparently, the area is also prone to frequent UFO sightings. The signs outside the controversial regions prohibit people from photographing the place and also warns that security is authorised to use deadly force on those who insist on trespassing.
