Oh, lets not start this again. It's been beaten to death on at least several other ATS threads.
Area 51 is extremely active. The Air Force is continiuing to pour millions of dollars into the base for improvements and expansion of
infrastructure. Check out the latest satellite images.
Area 52 is Tonopah Test Range. There are classified programs (EW, UAVs, etc.) going on there as well. Other sites for classified programs have always
included China Lake, White Sands, and Point Mugu. In recent years, Lockheed Martin has conducted tests of some of its products at such places as Area
6 (Yucca Flat) and San Nicholas Island.
But Area 51 (Det. 3, AFFTC) is still the premier Air Force test site for Black projects. The base houses an entire Test Wing organization. It hasn't
closed down or moved away.
