How do you think you'd hide a rocket launched in our busy US airspace (particularly with the trajectory it'd need to achieve a stable orbit over Groom Lake??

Seriously though, if you were to get in there and out, what would you do with the info? Post it on the Internet and then get busted a short time afterwards? The fact that someone posted this on an open messagebaord was the 1st mistake. Also, if there was a group of you, could you REALLY trust them with such highly sensitive information?
Also, if you got in, where would you go? How would you avoid security people, cameras, locked doors? I'm sure a place like that would even use biometric security or even just electronic locks with numeric codes.
Lastly, the stuff in there could well be to do with homeland security and telling people about whats going on could be priceless info if it got into the wrong hands.

I have been thinking about this for quite a while and came across this thread. One thing surprises me: No one has mentioned the use of RC drones. You can use just about any kind of remote controlled vehicle, be it a car (mine fields!), a plane or helicopter (sound detectors) or aballoon lifter (cameras and you need sufficient power).
Sure, you wouldn't get very far, but you might be able to get far enough to get some good footage.
You would have to get the camera to directly transmit a video feed to recording equipment since the thing probably isn't going to live long and most definitely won't make it back.
The only remaining issue is how not to get caught. It's fairly easy to track a radio signal, so you would either have to control the vehicle via sattelite (if you're lucky enough to have at least partial control over it), use public radio transmitters or develop a propetiary system (perhaps based on cellular phones). The cell phone idea is neat because you can do it from practically anywhere.
Anyway, that's my 2 cents...
