The Base With No Name

The truth is out there:

A mysterious, mile-long landing strip in the remote Nevada desert could be the home base for testing sensors on a top-secret fleet of drones, security experts speculate.

The asphalt landing strip is in Area 6 of the Yucca Flat test site, about 12 miles northeast of the infamous Area 51 that has long been the subject of conspiracy theories. ...

The area, which does not have a name, is fenced off and can be seen from the road by those touring the pockmarked Nevada National Security Site of Yucca Flat, where the military conducted hundreds of nuclear tests over several decades.

Unless Spinal Tap has taught us nothing, I think it is safe to say that Area 6 is 45 less important than Area 51.

Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week.
