How much faith should I put in an "Area 51" youtube video that contains nothing but Google Earth imagery of the Nevada Test Site, but fails to
actually show Area 51. The answer would be "not much."
The NTS (N2S2 or whatever they call it these days) has their radioactivity under control, thank you very much. Most of the range is no hotter than
All underground tests had instrumentation associated with the test. They build large tower to hold the instrumentation, then run cables back to
logging gear. The tower for ICECAP is still there, as well as a tower at the DOE facility in North Las Vegas My assumption is they just leave the
cable there after the test. For a new test, they got new cables. Failure is not an option when you are exploding nukes, so they probably avoided
recycling the cables.
Not well known unless you have been on the NTS, but there are areas where underground nuke tests have been done without craters forming. They have
signs that indicate potential crater site or something like that.
You can go to Project Faultless near route 6 and walk around an underground nuclear explosion site. There is no crater, but the ground does look a bit
distressed. Basecamp started out as the staging area for Project Faultless. When the AEC gave up on the Central Nevada test site, the USAF took over
Should anyone every ask you where Area 58 is located, well now you know!
