Most of us have seen the movie Koi Mill Gaya starring Hrithik Roshan, Preity Zinta and Jaadu as leads. Well, Jaadu was the only character which kept me glued to the movie. The same goes for many of my friends and maybe you too.
Though it was not the only movie showcasing aliens and certainly not the best, but it was definitely something that intrigued me to know more about such creatures.
Do they really exist?
Where do they live?
How do they look?
And this inquisitiveness brought me to research about the place- Area 51.
Area 51- located in Nevada, west USA- is a military airfield where US secret agencies and Air Force have been carrying out their oh-so-secretive missions and operations. The agencies are functioning there since the time of the Cold War when their secret missions used to be spying on the Soviet Union. (Heard of keeping the enemies closest?)
But now the Cold War is over and so is the need to keep the place so secretive. Well, anyone with military experience or not for that matter, does understand the need to keep military operations secretive but the level of secrecy is what turns the heads on. It was only in 2013 that CIA acknowledged its presence. Such behaviour and some stated events have given rise to the speculation that aliens grace the soil of area 51.
All the speculations about the presence of aliens started after the sighting of a UFO while routine testing of aircraft around area 51. The officials denied of any similarity between the “weird” aircraft and the ones they were testing area 51.
Some people have claimed that they have seen aircraft like UFO’s flying in the sky. Also, several military personnel assert that they have seen aliens around the place while working in area 51. (Either they got lucky or their eyes just deceived them).
The above is a video of the back gate of area 51, in which a group has captured an alien on lenses. (though that alien looks more like a mummy walking or rather posing for the camera). While filming, they suddenly spot an alien and the next second its gone. How did that happen? As far as aliens are concerned, one thing is sure that they are living creatures and not some ghost. So, how did they disappear?
All these instances do give us an insight into what may be true. But these are definitely not enough to point fingers on the U.S government. But again, there is no smoke without fire. As it is the US is quite famous for carrying out large scale secretive operations. You never know, what is actually true.
But the question still persists, do aliens even exist? From the point of view of science, there is a possibility of life on other planets in this galaxy or may be somewhere in 200 billion galaxies that exist in the universe and we may be able to find them some day. Till then we have got only movies and half-cooked truths to quench our thirsts.
