By Phil Patton

There's a position within the Nevada desolate tract the scale of Belgium that doesn't formally exist.  It is the airbase the place try flights of our top-secret experimental army airplane are carried out and --not coincidentally--where the conspiracy theorists insist the Pentagon is hiding UFOs and aliens.  This is Dreamland--or region 51.  For Phil Patton, the assumption of writing a shuttle account of a spot he couldn't actually  visit used to be irresistible.  What he came upon was once a global the place Chick Yeager and the key planes of the chilly conflict converged with the Nevada try website and alien landings at Roswell.

A imagine tank for aviation engineering, Dreamland should be obvious from a summit outdoor the base's perimeter, 100 miles north of Las Vegas.  On Freedom Ridge, teams of aircraft buffs assemble with their camouflage clothes and binoculars.  These are the Stealth chasers, the Skunkers, men with code names like Agent X and 0, hoping for a glimpse of the rumored raylike shapes of planes like Black Manta and "the mom ship."  The so much mysterious craft is Aurora, the successor to the mythical U-2, acknowledged to run on methane and fly as speedy as Mach 6.  Scanning an analogous horizon, the alien craft buffs are trying to find the soaring lighting and doughnut-shaped contrails of alien aircraft.  Are they taking a look at whatever sinister and mysterious?  Imagined?  Or extra terrestrial than they think?  Dreamland indicates how a lot we'd like secret within the details age, and the way the cultures of nuclear strength and airpower merge with the folklores of extraterrestrials and earthly conspiracies.

Dreamland is an exploration of America's so much mystery position: the bottom for our experimental airplanes, the fount of flying saucers rumors, an offshoot of the Nevada try out Site.  How this "blackspot" got here to exist--its historical past, its creators, its spies and counterspies--is Phil Patton's tale.  He tunnels into the subcultures of the conspiracy buffs, the genuine believers, and the aeronautic geniuses, making a novelistic journey de strength destined to make us all reconsider our convictions approximately American know-how--and alien inventiveness.

Sample text

A fourth-century colossal head of Asklepios was found in a cave on Melos, which also contained a statue base and figurines of Hygieia, as well as a votive bone inscribed with the names ofboth. 23 In Athens there was a sacrifice for Asklepios and Hygieia on the day of the Dissoteria. 24 Votive thank offerings are commonly dedicated to the pair. This is not to argue that Hygieia's importance is equal to that of Asklepios-on the contrary, her cult is almost entirely dependent on his. The point is that while we think of Asklepios as an individual healing figure, the experience of the person actually participating in the cult would have been of a pair or a family group.

These scenes, of course, lack such heroic attributes as snake, horse, and armor. 59 54 55 ICONOGRAPHY A N D HEROIC CULT Heroines in Votive Reliefs Heroines in Votive Reliefs In general, then, the "hero feast" is not shown on vases, and even the stereotypical scene of the banqueting "husband-wife" pair is avoided. A striking exception to this rule is a cup by the Kodros painter, dated 450-425. 60 It shows five divine couples in the familiar banqueting pose. In the central position are Persephone and Pluto, who holds a large cornucopia, the symbol of his ability to grant abundance.

2 The shape of the relief itself is significant; sepulchral reliefs are usually stelai, tall and relatively narrow, while votive reliefs for gods or heroes, including the Totenmahl reliefs, are oblong and wide, often intended to fit into the wall of a shrine. 3 Inscriptions on Totenmahl and other heroic reliefs are rare, suggesting that they generally were not used to commemorate the recently dead. Moreover, the few inscriptions we have show quite clearly that 42 43 Heroines in Votive Reliefs Heroines in Votive Reliefs the Totenmahl reliefs were dedicated primarily to heroes, and sometimes to deities with similar cults, such as chthonic Dionysos, Zeus Meilichios or Philios, and Asklepios.
