Erlenmeyer Flask

Sploid talks about the satellite views of Area 51 captured on Google Maps:

In the 1990s, bizarre stories were told by shady characters about alien spacecraft being flown and “back engineered” at Area 51.

Here’s Groom Lake — a dry lakebed that is nature’s perfect runway — and the adjoining test-flight facility. That runway is 5 miles long. The Google Maps can’t compete with the 1-meter resolution images catalogued here by the Federation of American Scientists, but you can’t beat the convenience or the price.

Link. I wish there were a way to get a little pink tag to point directly at the alien bodies.
