The Man who Spilled UFO Secrets Helped Launch The Area 51 Stampede
On May 15, 1989, KLAS-TV aired a live interview with a shadowy man who didn't use his real name. The story he told was pretty outrageous, but 30 years later, it is still causing waves. Bob Lazar's allegations about alien technology being tested in the Nevada desert ignited worldwide interest and put the then-secret military base known as Area 51 on the map. The I-Team has a look at how far the story has spread in the three decades since that interview.
For the live interview, Lazar didn't want his real name used. So, he was referred to as "Dennis" during the interview. That turned out to be the name of his boss at a place called S-4, a facility built into the side of a mountain, disguised to look like natural terrain. It would be another seven months before the world learned the guy's real name was Bob Lazar, but the public didn't wait. The race to Area 51 was on, and the cultural ripples are still being felt.
In 1989, physicist Bob Lazar broke the story of Area 51 and the US government's work on alien spacecrafts. He blew the whistle, shocked the world, then went silent - until now. Narrated by Oscar Nominee Mickey Rourke.
