I know that Edwards AFB was mentioned, but it wasn't stated that the old Rocket Test Site has a labarynth of underground tunnels in the mountain. I
grew up within sight of it in Boron and remember the days when they tested all of the rocket engines to see what kind of stability and thrust they
produced. It was very loud when they did and fire shot out of the side of the mountain...very cool!
My grandfather worked there at the time. I remember asking what he did there and I never got an answer from him. He wasn't a rocket scientist or
anything that advanced.
Today, the mountain is still in use, but I have no idea what they do there now. I don't think they test many rocket engines anymore.
When the issue of the dirt that comes out of these tunnels is brought up, you have to wonder where it could be taken to. If there is tunneling
between Edwards and Nevada, then a probable place to put the removed dirt would be the U.S. Borax mine just outside of Boron. A mining operation
would be a great cover for millions of tons of earth being piled up somewhere. It wouldn't be hard to work some things out with mine company
corporate execs for a separate operation on or near the mining site that our government could operate. There would be plenty of free trailings
brought out that the mine might have use for.
I have no reason to believe that there are tunnels between Edwards and Nevada, but I wouldn't doubt it much either. I still live in the desert and
don't see signs of it. Of course, I'm not sure what kind of signs to look for.
