The controversial venture scheduled to take place at 3 am on September 20. Attendants meet at the Area 51 Alien Center in Amargosa Valley, Nevada before going massively to the base itself.
The ill-advised plan was first posted on Facebook under the title ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us,’ which seeks to discover proof of aliens at the base.
There are 185,000 people registered for attendance at the time of writing and another 220,000 who have registered their interest, but it is unclear how many will actually appear on the day.
Because Area 51 is well known for its armed military patrols, it’s hard to imagine what would occur if even a small percentage of those who signed up tried to storm the base.
It is also extremely unlikely that any helpful data about the facility would be provided by the stunt.
