That is not a picture of Area 51. It is a picture of the Radioactive Waste Management Site in Area 5 (Frenchman Flat) of the Nevada Test Site. This is a 790-acre site for storage of low-level radioactive waste generated by military and DoE activities. The material is packed in boxes of uniform shape and size, and buried in even rows in excavated pits. The inventoried and bar-coded boxes are stacked four deep and arranged in an alpha-numeric grid within the pit in case they need to be retrieved or accounted for.
