Celebrating Alienstock at Area 51

Fans of life-forms from other planets turned out for AlienStock at Area 51 in Rachel, Nevada, following the internet's call to "storm Area 51", the secret U.S. military installation.

Priscilla Huff reporting.

Two million people promised on social media to show up at the gate to Area 51, the secret U.S. military installation, to find out if aliens are real.

In reality, only a few thousand showed up.

Sydney Norling is a tourist from Sweden.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) SYDNEY NORLING, TOURIST FROM SWEDEN, SAYING: "When this was trending on the internet, all of my friends in Sweden was talking about it." About 100 stayed for Alienstock - a celebration of all things out of this world.

For some, it was an opportunity to show off their Naruto run - a reference to the Japanese anime character Naruto who flings his arms behind himself.

For others, it was a chance to meet other like-minded people.

Samantha Schueler traveled from Omaha, Nebraska.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) SAMANTHA SCHUELER, TOURIST FROM OMAHA, NEBRASKA, SAYING: "I think it's going to turn into something consistently every year with the type of people that I've met here, they are pretty cool.

The fact that everyone just on a whim came here too and this many people showed up, that was kinda cool." Connie West is the co-owner of the A-LE-INN in Rachel, Nevada.

She organized Alienstock.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) CONNIE WEST, CO-OWNER OF A-LE-INN, SAYING: "Only thing I don't want to do is disappoint my community, because my community means everything to me.

As long I can walk away with this and they are ok with me, then I'm good...then I'm good!" The event started as a joke, a Facebook page titled "storm area 51, they can't stop all of us." It ended with local officials noting, that if there's a similar event next year, it needs to be better planned and funded.

Scientists in Nevada are the latest to report a likely case of COVID-19 reinfection. They seem to have genetic evidence backing up their claim, as well. It remains to be seen whether reinfection will be a common phenomenon, says Gizmodo. This newest case suggests that a second infection can cause more severe illness than the first. This is true even in young and seemingly healthy people. However, the report about the reinfection hasn’t undergone the typical peer-review process as of yet.
