Alien seekers have begun to gather in southern Nevada, with two people detained on September 20 near the entrance of Area 51, a military base surrounded by myths of extraterrestrial visitors.

Since June 2019, two million people have responded to a Facebook invitation to “Storm Area 51.” Government officials have warned would-be trespassers against trying to enter, though stalwart travelers in smaller numbers have begun to arrive, hoping—if not to find evidence of ET—at least to partake in one of two “Alienstock” music festivals planned for this weekend.
People desire to be part of something, to be ahead of the curve,” said sociologist Michael Ian Borer. “Area 51 is a place where normal, ordinary citizens can’t go. When you tell people they can’t do something, they just want to do it more.”

Area 51 is an Air Force base used to test experimental aircraft, so we shouldn’t expect the Department of Defense to invite in the public to have a look around. The restrictions from entering Area 51 have only given conspiracy theorists more reason to question what’s inside. In turn, the lack of access provides a ready explanation for not being able to provide proof that extraterrestrials are already locked away in Area 51.

Scientists searching for signs of extraterrestrial life on planets orbiting distant stars need something concrete to scrutinize before they can make the astounding claim that Earth is being visited. They’re unimpressed by claims that extraterrestrials have already arrived.
