Does anyone have any information regarding this site:

37.13354215618161, -116.0545054475232?

All I can figure out from the images on Google Earth is:
1.) It's near Groom Lake
2.) It looks like it's had the crap bombed out of it. (look around the general area; you'll see lots of craters - there's an especially big one at 37.17941553403784, -116.0463289085676)

I can't look at the area you're talking about but there are a lot of bombing ranges out there. Groom Lake is right next to Nellis AFB, which is home of Red Flag. Red Flag does tons of bombing competitions and live fire training. They have simulated SA-2 sites, and airfields out there for training.

That Yucca Flat.

Its part of the NTS and used for the testing of nuclear bombs. Most of them are exploded underground i believe.

Theres some info here.

i can't decipher your coords but that is most likely the nevada test site.

the largest crater there is sedan crater which was a nuclear detonation to test whether it was feasable to use nukes on public works projects ie: canals and such

If you go onto the google video website, and type into the search bar on there "underground nuke". In the results you will get like a nine minute compilation video of quite a few of the bombs (even the really big one!), its quite amazing.

Im not a scientist, but now watching one of the videos of underground nukes tests, made me wonder. If where they tested all the nukes underground, they were able to construct the underground bases? or would the soil be to radioactive for anything to be built for underground construction. But not in those area's of where you see the explosions.

It just made me think from watching that, im probably wrong but it seems like it could work in a way.
