Thanks for the Apollo 18 info, first i'd heard about that...love to learn new things like that.
Then you are not aware of the massive infrastructure in place that it took to launch the Saturn Vs, not just the pad, but you need the vehicle assembly building and it has to be vertical, any 400+ foot high huge buildings out there at Area 51 or any desert Air Force base? Nope, not a one. Besides shipping the main body from Huntsville Alabama to a Nevada desert, really couldn't be done very secretly.
You have to think laterally mate.
Many reports of underground bases exist on record, on camera, from identified and credible witnesses (sorry Vince) and not from an anonymous poster on an anonymous website forum.
There have been many that report HUGE MASSIVE cargo type platform / elevators that descend many levels...this could easily be a launch platform..under the surface.
NOT saying it is, or even if the things exist, i have no proof personally, but that IF they did and are as described in other more credible reports, this could be their function.
Underground launch pads, with vehicle assembly alongside them.
The extra Apollo missions could have easily have been launched from Soviet/Russian territory under the guise of being Mother Russia missions. We could have shipped the components of the Saturn V via the pacific or they could have been fabricated on their territory. Just research how exactly (and even better) they duplicated the Space Shuttle concept known as the Buran. Check out Slayer's thread for more info. The Russians aren't exactly stupid.
What happened to Russia's Space Shuttle program?

A "what if" scenario by last poster.
Of course the black budget allows for clandenstine spending, and secrecy- one needs to look no further than Oxcart, which became the SR-71.
Thinking any "objects", either manned or unmanned have to be launched either from Vandenburg or FL is shortsighted. Who knows, the giant underground hangars at 51, or elsewhere could be opened in the middle of the night- launch a large rocket (which may now have the capability to diffuse/disguise propulsion) into space/orbit) without thousands of prying eyes.

There's an area here near the Air Force base in Albuquerque, NM called Four Corners.

Well yeah I guess I was wrong - when I started posting it seemed like people hadn't posted in a while. Nevertheless, thanks for adding nothing to the conversation.

You seem really certain this is all a lie... Where is your proof?
