This website started off back in the mid-90s as the Area 51 Research Center running of free webhosts.
The first version of what eventually became AboveTopSecret.com consisted of about five or so pages, my main interest at the time being the Groom Lake,
Nevada facility known as Area 51. I also wrote an article about the Roswell incident and some aircraft-related pages.
It was all uphill from there, registering for the abovetopsecret.com domain name, adding more articles, implementing a rather simple chatroom and then
a message board system through ezBoard.
The name itself, Above Top Secret, was actually based on an albeit fake document I saw in a UFO magazine that had "Above Top Secret" stamped on it.
It wasn't until years later I started reading Timothy Good's books. To be honest, aliens and UFOs isn't a great interest of mine, but rather
military technology and aerospace projects.
Thanks to some extremely helpful ideas, knowledge and more importantly an interest in my website, SkepticOverlord has transformed ATS into the
powerhouse community it is now.
