‘Storm Area 51’ founder aborts mission

After months of hoopla leading up to this month’s planned “Storm Area 51” event, the California man behind it has pulled the plug.

Matty Roberts, whose tongue-in-cheek Facebook call to raid the secret government facility resulted in more than three million confirmations, says he’s called off the quest for alien secrets due to safety concerns. “Due to the lack of infrastructure, poor planning, risk management and blatant disregard for the safety of the expected 10,000-plus attendees, we decided to pull the plug on the festival,” Roberts says.

The group had been scheduled to convene in Rachel, Nevada on September 20th.

Had the event gone on as planned, do you think they would have discovered any alien secrets at Area 51? Would they even have gotten inside?
