Even though the US denied its existence, another top secret US military base was discovered.
The Google Earth images were revealed days ago showing the clandestine secret facility — known as Area 6 — which is located deep in the Nevada desert on the Yucca flat.
According to reports, the top-secret facility is run by the National Nuclear Security Administration which has worked very hard in keeping the secret and working towards hiding the existence of the secret facility from prying eyes. In fact, the base was considered so important that even defense industry experts had no idea the base existed until now.
The airbase has a 5,000 feet runway which is mainly used for aircraft tests for federal agencies such as the Department of Defense and Homeland Security.
Area 6 is where agencies intend to develop counter-terrorism techniques, including testing equipment with capabilities to detect radioactive material. So far, Area 6 is not connected to UFOs and otherworldly phenomenon like its neighboring facility, Area 51.
Interestingly, Area 6, which still has no ‘official name’ is located only a dozen miles northeast of the (in)famous Area 51, whose existence was acknowledged by the government of the United States on 2013. Area 51 is said to be the place to go for secret experiments, high-tech weapons, aliens, and UFOs. There, at Area 51, the government developed the first airplanes capable of flying great distances and at extremely high altitudes during the Cold War. But today, this place is anything but abandoned, and according to the newest satellite images, the government is building more buildings and expanding the area of influence of this “secret” military base. Satellite images show a giant hanger being built. Among other weird buildings, there is also a pyramid shaped object at Area 51.
“The purpose of this facility is to construct, operate, and test a variety of unmanned aerial vehicles. Tests include, but are not limited to, airframe modifications, sensor operation, and onboard computer development. A small, manned chase plane is used to track the unmanned aerial vehicles,” reads the report Energy Department contractor Bechtel SAIC prepared in 2008 for the Yucca Mountain repository license application.
