S2 E12: Area 51

This time, on Counting Cryptids:

We take a step back from cryptids and explore another mysterious topic, Area 51. Recently a Facebook event was created, detailing "We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens." But that is far from the beginning of the so called "Groom Lake Facility". Built in the 1950's for Black Projects (development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapons systems), the facility wasn't officially confirmed until June 2013, under a Freedom of Information Act request. In the late 80's, a man by the name of Bob Lazar came forward claiming to have been employed at a facility called "S-4", roughly 8 miles from Area 51, reverse engineering advanced technology. He claims that the craft that he worked on was not from earth, and was extraterrestrial. Lazar describe 9 different crafts seen at the facility, and claims briefing documents stated the craft came from a planet in the Zeta Reticuli star system called ZR-3. Lazar's credentials are soon brought into question as his alleged past is erased. His Masters from MIT, and Cal Tech, his employment history, and even his birth certificate, all disappeared. Lazar's story, coupled with countless UFO sightings in the area, have made the public suspicious of the area for decades, prompting the current movement scheduled for September 2019. Is Lazar telling the truth? Was the United States Government actually attempting to reverse engineer extraterrestrial technology? And how many of the almost 2 million "attending" will actually show? Join us, Cryptid Counters, in a desperate attempt for more downloads on another episode of Counting Cryptids.
