Area 51 stands out as an incredibly storied location in the desolate Nevada desert. Always mysterious, any kind of attention drawn to Area 51 immediately conjures up cries of conspiracy — particularly the claim that it is the site of the government’s experiments with extraterrestrials.
Those who believe the government is up to something at Area 51 will be incensed by a new report that a family is being forced to sell the property they own near Area 51. The U.S. Air Force has just made an offer of $5.2 million in exchange for the land, and if the property owners doesn’t accept this time, they say they will be taking it by force, reported Associated Press.
The battle for the property has raged for more than half a century, with the U.S. Air Force slowly snatching up all of the adjacent properties until the 400-acre chunk stood completely isolated by the advancing border of Area 51. Now, reports AP, the property isn’t even reachable without passing armed guards.
