I'll make some allowances since English is obviously not your native language. Nevertheless, I can't help wondering why your lead photo seems to have been taken someplace in Arizona.

The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) did not decide to build the base in an existing area with the number 51. The number was assigned sometime after that section was officially added to the Nevada Test Site around 1958.The section gets its name, "Area 51," from Project 51, construction of the EG&G radar range.

The existence of the base was officially acknowledged by the AEC in April 1955 when it was first built. The name "Area 51" was officially acknowledged by the AEC in September 1959.

There is no subterranean complex.

There are no research labs.
