The front of NASA verified the fact that there is extraterrestrial life, but aliens are not secluded in Area 51.
NASA administrator, Major Charles Bolden, told British schoolchildren that he believes scientists could find life outside the borders of Earth.
He was asked by a 10-year-old girl if he believes in aliens and he replied that he does believe in the fact that humankind is able to find another form of life outside our solar system.
He said: “Today we know that there are literally thousands, if not millions of other planets, many of which may be very similar to our own earth. So some of us, many of us believe that we’re going to find evidence that there is life elsewhere in the universe.”
Major Bolden also confessed Area 51 truly exists, but that it is not the location where US government hides aliens. Instead, he described this area as a place for research and advancement only.
Area 51 was always a place that was kept as a secret, even though everyone knew about it, and fed the creativity of conspiracy theorists and UFO believers all around the world.
The Central Intelligence Agency in 2013 declared the precise area in Nevada, near Groom Lake, in the records discharged as a part of a Freedom of Information request.
Their records portray how this place was used in the Second World War as aeronautical artillery for the Army Air Corp pilots.
Later, President Dwight Eisenhower approved this segment of wilderness, known by its map classification as Area 51, to the Atomic Energy Commissions Nevada test site and training range.
Major Bolden also cited that one of the reasons why men haven’t stepped foot on Mars is the deficiency of suitable toilet facilities.
NASA has its hopes for finally sending humans to Mars in 2030 if they manage to beat their technological barriers.
However, their objective is not landing, but doing an orbital mission like the first time they went to the Moon. The arguments justifying this are that they have to get ready for the Martian surface for human residence first.
“We’re not going to send humans down to the surface of Mars to build the habitats, the houses; we’re probably going to use robots.
“Our technical abilities are not what we want it to be now. We need better life support systems, we need a toilet that’s not going to break on the way there, then when we get to the Martian surface we need (a toilet) that’s going to work over and over again. Toilets are a big deal.” – said Mr. Bolden.
Mr. Bolden also talked about the conspiracy theories which say the famous Moon landing was a hoax. He said that it’s understandable people to have lack of faith, but he, himself, doesn’t have doubts that they really went there and that they are going to go Mars in short time too.
