Aliens – do they exist, and are they hiding from us? Or they being kept from us in Area 51? These are the pressing questions that plague us today. Two Dutch Youtubers were arrested on Tuesday for trespassing on this secret test location. Were they trying to find the answers to these questions? We don’t know.
Ties Granzier (20) is a YouTuber with around 735,000 subscribers and Govert Sweep (21) has around 307,000 subscribers. As they were Dutch, they could clearly read the “Do Not Enter” and “No Trespassing” signs that every visitor is greeted with outside of the Nevada National Security Site, a secured and militarised test location for the US Air Force.
They had already made it a few kilometers into the site before they were stopped and arrested by the police and detained in the Nye County prison near Las Vegas. After they found out that they were YouTubers, they searched their car to find cameras and a drone that already had some footage of the site.
Area 51: Storm it next Friday, according to the Facebook event
Were these YouTubers trying to find out if aliens were being kept there? Or were they trying to jump on the bandwagon, where hundreds of people have clicked “going” on a Facebook event to storm this mystery clad military base on September 20? So many questions, so few answers.
