‘We’ve all heard rumors of secret government underground facilities such as Area 51 or Cheyenne Mountain, but how many of these facilities could there be, and what is taking place at these bases that is so secretive?
Approximately 83 miles (or 134 KM) north-northwest of downtown Las Vegas, Nevada, exists a top secret U.S. military installation dubbed by pop culture as Area 51 but insiders refer to it as Dreamland, the Nevada Test and Training Range, Watertown, Home Base, Homey Airport, or specific sites such as S-2, S-3 and the infamous S-4. The number 51 is only significant to land surveying, since the site exists in the dry bed of Groom Lake on grid square number 51 near the intersecting boarders of three counties in southern Nevada: Clark County, Lincoln County and Nye County.
The nuclear testing site located just to the north is, for example, called Area 13, also named for the stretch of land it occupies. Within grid square 51 is a6-by-10-mile block of land, at the center of which is a large air base the government will not discuss. This air base has the longest air traffic runway on planet Earth, but that’s just what is on the surface.’
