You stated above; "I thought the triangular space craft object
was solved years ago. I read the explanation in Popular
Mechanics."

Satellite imagery in the 70s had outed Groom Lake's existance.
Popuar Mechanics always manages to come out with some fresh
'new' data which is usually years old for the uninitiated
usually written by someone who had little or no credibility but
since those who read the magazine don't know anything about the
subject to begin with it is easy to make the information appear
fresh.
