Anyone near the internet has undoubtedly seen a peculiar, if exciting, bit of news: The Central Intelligence Agency finally acknowledged the existence of Area 51. The Nevada installation has been the subject of decades of speculation about what might be hidden there. Autopsied aliens? Spaceships? Jimmy Hoffa? OK, maybe not that one. It turns out Area 51 was... wait for it... a testing site for planes! Wha?

A testing site for aerial surveillance programs, mind you, not alien surveillance programs. Read more in Wired Magazine and watch the movie screen versions of Area 51.
