Just an idea...but if you want to help the child explore the real and 'not scary' side of a scientific mystery, that could be a path in from a direction that doesn't require tin foil hats to enter. Why not point to something mysterious enough for even a kid to get lost in imagining....and let him carry himself into the area from there?

In my opinion, its pretty irresponsible of you to make claims like that around a malleable young mind. Your daughter is probably concerned about her son growing up believing in something that isn't true.
Kids cannot discern between truth and paranoid fantasy, particularly when an authority figure is involved.
Harry Potter has nothing to do with it. Harry Potter is a well established fiction, popular with kids. Pushing what are almost certainly false beliefs, without proof, on a young boy is far from any fiction.
As far as Area 51, I knew about that as a kid. Its a popular theme in TV and movies, so that is hardly surprising.
I think you need to be more considerate of your grandsons psychological wellbeing.
