my best guess, they found some chinese virus or something thats been stealing scientific research as they are wont to do.

That's a pretty good theory. I still prefer my aliens theory because aliens.

It's not unheard of to shut down sensitive equipment ahead of a solar storm, but the involvement of the FBI pretty much debunks that possibility. You might be onto something with that malware theory.

This is one of those times you actually wonder if it's aliens.

It just doesn't make sense why they are being so hush hush about it. If they lied and said it was some sort of chemical leak or a possible terrorist threat, then most people wouldnt think twice about it.

I think they found Helios really is up there driving a chariot of fire.

You're right, it is a bit suspicious. Will be interesting to see if there are any updates.

The fact that they didn't invent a cover story suggests that it's probably beyond their ability sweep the truth under the rug, but they still want as much time as possible before the public learns about it.

What I really want to know is if the FBI shut the place down, or just took over operations...
