Question :
What's Area 51? and Where is it located?
Answer :
Area 51 is a top-secret military test facility located 85 miles north of Las Vegas, NV. The name “Area 51” came from old maps that labeled the land “Area 51.” When the military established the facility there in 1955, the name stuck. The current official name is now the Air Force Flight Test Center, Detachment 3, or short for AFFTC Det. 3.
