Storm Area 51: A look back and ahead one year later

The event that began on Facebook as a joke quickly became known worldwide as Storm Area 51. The initial online proposal was to have throngs of people storm across the line into the world’s best known secret base in hopes of ending UFO secrecy. The tagline to the event was, “They Can’t Stop All of Us.”
