                                      Area 51 Theory #1:
                                      The raid was actually successful, but one of their captured aliens had brought a time machine on their UFO, and became the property of the government when it was captured. At the very last minute, right before the Naruto Runners could talk it away, they used it to go back in time and find a way to stop us.
                                      Area 51 Theory #2:
                                      The government stole a vanisher from one of their captured aliens, and as more and more people signed up for the raid, they began to slowly vanish those who signed up.
                                      Area 51 Theory #3:
                                      The successful raid in inside of Area 51.
                                      Area 51 Theory #4:
                                      The raid was successful, but, using technology from the aliens, the government swept our memories clean.
                                      Area 51 Theory #5:
                                      All raiders secretly planned to trick the government and go on a different date, or the same date in a different year.
                                      But that’s just a theory...
                                      A PRETTY FRICKEN GAY THEORY!!!

                                          No offence but didnt Bill Nye know men that worked at Area 51 and had security clearance they seen no aliens space craft. Area 51 is just secret military installation for advanced aircraft technology.

                                            @Golden HD Question: Hey Bill. So there are many videos online claiming to be extraterrestrial sightings. It just seems that the government is aware of extraterrestrials yet they reject the idea. Possibly they’re hiding the truth from us in fear of the knowledge greatly changing our daily lives. Do you believe these aliens exist and if so would you tell us?

                                            Bill Nye: No I don’t believe the aliens exist coming to visit you and the government knows about it and hasn’t told you. No. Start with that. Two more things. First of all the whole alien thing really got revved up in 1947. There was a project called Sky Hook and the U.S. Government had these very cool super high altitude balloons and they were going to have a constellation of them or an armada of these balloons off the East Coast of the former Soviet Union with microphones tuned to listen for nuclear weapons tests. This was going to be big fun. And so they were testing the balloon in New Mexico and it was complicated and the winds blew the thing around and it crashed and it was impractical. The idea was kind of cool but it was a cold war idea that just didn’t work. Now this project was secret so yes, government people showed up. The U.S. Army swept up all the debris from the crash and took it away because it was secret.
                                            And they also experimented with parachuting dummies from very high altitudes in the same area. And this has led to all these fabulous myths about aliens and the government knows stuff you don’t. Now I look like nobody and I am but I had an engineering job, several of them over the years, and during one of them I had security clearance. And I worked on a secret airplane for a little while and I never went myself but I worked with several guys, they were all men, who went to Area 51 to Groom Lake which is an Air Force base in Nevada where we fly around these secret airplanes. And it’s a real place. And these guys went there and when I was doing it it was called level five security clearance. I only had level four. I never went to Groom Lake. But the big thing they wouldn’t talk about was how fast these planes could go. That was a big secret. But anyway these are people that worked on the F117, a stealth fighter. If you ever go to the Air Force Museum in Ohio you can see the Have Blue secret planes, very cool.
                                            As a kid I always asked myself why don’t they paint spy planes light blue to blend in with the blue sky. Well sometimes they do. Anyway you can see one of those there. So it’s a complete myth that the government knows. Just think how hard it is for the government to keep anything secret. With all due the government kind of sucks at keeping secrets. So they couldn’t possibly keep the secret with 10,000 people in on it. So let’s just set that aside. But with that said you may very well be alive when we discover life or evidence of life rather on Mars. This would literally be alien life. If we find it, if we find some ancient microbes still alive in some icy layer under the Martian sand it would change the world. It would change the way everybody thinks about being a living thing. Do these things on Mars if they exist do they have DNA or did they have DNA if they have been fossilized? Or are they a whole other completely different type of life that we’ve never thought of. Did life start on Mars? Mars got hit with an impactor and you and I are a descendent of Martians? That is amazing. It’s not crazy. It’s extraordinary but it’s not crazy. Then furthermore you may be alive when we send mission to the moon of Jupiter called Europa which has at least twice as much seawater as the earth. When you have seawater for 4.5 billion years is there something alive on Europa? Whoa like dude, that’s out there. It would change the world. It would utterly change the world. This would be real alien life discovered with tax dollars by people who are intellectually curious who decide to devote some of our intellect and treasure to exploring our nearby planetary worlds.
                                            And that’s the real stuff that I encourage you to support and follow. And for that of course I encourage you to join the Planetary Society. Think about that. You don’t have to, I’m just suggesting because we really do advocate for the real exploration of nearby worlds really looking for alien life. Also the James Webb space telescope is going to launch in 2018 and it may have the capability – it is hoped that it will have the capability of exploring atmospheres of extraordinarily distant planets by having sunlight from those stars that those planets orbit pass through the atmospheres. If we detect water vapor and methane it may mean some day that we’ve detected evidence of life on another world. Do, do, do, do – do, do, do, do. It’s all the real stuff is what I’m saying, the real exploration for alien life is more exciting than speculating about a nominally secret Air Force base in Nevada. Carry on

                                            @Golden HD Bill Nye is a highly respected scientist that does assiduous research work in the field of science don't get me wrong I believe in UFO's but aliens they have never came here in my opinion. UFO'S are something else and nor do I think the US Government has them it's pure utter B.S. Looking at those idiots at Area 51 just adds more skepticism. Too much Sci fi films and Bob Lazar B.S. stories for them. Roswell was a weather balloon.
