Rethinking Nuclear Submarines
Nor did he give in the interview any indication that he believed that we actually had a mysterious fleet in space even though he earlier had professed that his goal to find factual data to prove his suspicions that the unregistered ships were actually manned spaceships.
Who’s to say that a particular type of nuclear submarine doesn’t venture out into the wide ocean, scan the area for other ships and then with “make it so…” orders from the captain, buttons are pushes and the propeller assembly becomes disengaged. Other buttons are pushed to engage the reactor’s turbine to divert power to a field-producing generator that encloses the entire ship in a charged field, creating a local region unaffected by gravity. The ship, in effect, has escaped the normal bonds of gravity, mass and inertia. Encompassed as such, it rises to the surface like a cork and on into the air if unrestrained, like a balloon. More than likely, of course, from its hiding place below the waves it would be instantly thrust upward as an immense, speeding bullet into space. Just exactly as frequently happens when an alien UFO bursts from the sea.

And the simplest and most obvious explanation to all this is that he found a treasure trove of honey pot material left as a trap for anyone trying to hack their way into NASA's servers. Even fake, he would still have to go to court for the hack. I say he found nothing, as boring as it sounds.
Other than that, it holds another record. It is the one and only military installation in the world that can support multiple operations for planes, ships, spaceships and submarines at the same time.
The US Air Force decided that it wanted an atomic powered bomber that could reach anywhere in the world non-stop without refueling. It dreamed of giant planes that could stay in the air on indefinite patrol, possibly only coming down every few weeks for crew rotation. Obviously an impossible dream, but they set to work toward that goal. Two B-36 bombers were dedicated to be modified to carry experimental reactors. ...As the saying goes, the air force went off half-cocked in their efforts. As an experimental unit, the reactor was hung under the belly of the B-36. It provided no power for propelling the plane.

That would have to be one massive aircraft to house a reactor like that, seems too much like science fiction than scrapped plans
