Boeing Images, Patents of Mothership Appear to be from Area 51
Since the public became aware of the clandestine Area 51 installation at Nevada’s Groom Lake, it has forever been associated with secret advanced technology and extraterrestrials. And now, Boeing’s release of several concept drawings showing a reusable “mothership” spacecraft have provided a glimpse into the type of skunkworks projects developed there.
The Drive’s WarZone, first picked up on the release of these illustrations in January, before dissecting them in a post published a few weeks later.
By analyzing the landscape and apparent model year of a car in the drawings, the two determined the mockups came from the late 1980s or early 1990s. They identified a Ford Bronco and the distinctive hills of Groom Lake, saying these resemblances are almost certainly a depiction of Area 51.
What makes the photos so fascinating is the advanced technology of the spacecraft and its similitude to reports of triangular UFOs seen numerous times in the area over the years.
The illustrations seem to match perfectly with one of Boeing’s patents for a “two-stage-to-orbit” system and depicts a mothership carrying a smaller craft in its undercarriage. The craft’s description says it would be launched on unannounced missions to space and deploy payloads into orbit, before landing at any number of airfields around the world. These capabilites would have been unattainable through standard rocketry, not to mention its design far precedes modern reusable rockets like SpaceX’s Falcon 9.
The mothership appears to be propelled by air-breathing jet engines, while the smaller jet contained within it appears to have a scramjet engine – an advanced propulsion system capable of achieving hypersonic flight into space. The craft also seems to have a heat shield on its undercarriage similar to those found on the space shuttle.
Those in the UFO community have pointed out that the smaller, “parasite” craft depicted in the illustrations has a similarity to the infamous TR-3B craft witnessed countless times over the past decades.
According to The War Zone, the craft was likely an experimental product of the Cold War and the government’s desire to gain an edge on the Soviets. But they also said it wouldn’t be a surprise if a concept like this was being revived and updated with modern technology, given recently expressed desires for a space force and the paranoia around space warfare. There have also been pictures that recently surfaced, showing a new hangar at Area 51 without a roof or with a retractable roof, sparking conjecture as to whether some new technology is currently under development.
While the release of these drawings is certainly fascinating, there are still numerous questions left unanswered.
Did this project ever even come to fruition? Is this some type of reverse-engineered alien craft from Area 51? And could this have been the culprit behind decades of mass sightings of a black triangle UFO, a.k.a. the TR-3B?
Furthermore, could this have anything to do with the mysterious triangular object hovering past the ISS earlier this year?

Controversial Characteristics of Fractional Reserve Banking
Chances are, if everyone at your bank decided to withdraw the entirety of each of their bank accounts, the bank would not have enough money at its disposal to meet the demand. This is because banks commonly operate under a fractional reserve banking system. In other words, the bank uses your money however it wants, banking (ahem) on the fact that its account holders won’t protest. Unfair? It sure sounds like it. Stealing? The banks prefer to call it “borrowing.”
What Is Fractional Reserve Banking?
Many people believe that when they deposit money into a bank, the bank keeps all of their money on hand, in a vault, in cash. But this isn’t the way most banks work. According to Investopedia.com, fractional reserve banking refers to a system where banks only back a fraction of bank deposits with actual cash on-hand, available for immediate withdrawal.
This means only a fraction of the money you deposit into your account is required to be available for withdrawal at any given time. For most banks, that fraction is a mere 10 percent of your deposit. So, instead of putting $100 into the vault when you deposit a $100 check, only $10 goes in. That $10 is known as “reserves.”
Surprisingly, many banks are not required to even keep 10 percent on hand — and some aren’t required to keep any reserves at all. Any bank with less than $15.2 million in assets is exempt from keeping any reserves, and those with assets between $15.2 million and $110.2 million are only required to keep 3 percent.
There is an incentive, though, for your bank to keep more of your money in the vault: The Federal Reserve pays out interest on all reserves and excess reserves. The interest is called IOR (“Interest On Reserves”) or IOER (“Interest On Excess Reserves”), and since 2009, it pays out 0.25% at an annual rate.
