AN ENTERPRISING surfer has found a way to harness Google's new mapping facility to uncover the secrets of Area 51.
The American military base, in the Nevada desert, is steeped in history and rumour - allegedly being the place where all of Uncle Sam's work with extra-terrestrials and physics-defying technology takes place. The place is so heavily guarded, it's almost impossible to get within miles of it.
However, with satellite map technology, you can uncover some pretty spectacular pictures of the base, including some interesting structures in and around it that can't quite be identified.
If you want to go take a peek around Area 51 for yourself, have a look at this illustrated guide here. It's a fascinating read.
