You've read the nonsense. Tunnels going from Roswell to Area 51 with a stop off at Edwards. Let's look at a modern tunnel project, then try to
extrapolate if these interstate tunnels are feasible.
Caltrans data on the Devils Slide tunnel
OK, two tunnels less than a mile long. Total cost $439 million. That makes $219 million a tunnel. Oh, and this is in suitable soil, i.e. a mountain,
not just random soil as you would find between states. And fifteen thousand truck loads of dirt. Now bear in mind the so-called interstate tunnel
would have to offhaul this dirt in a covert manner (presumably possible through the tunnel itself) and then dispose of it (less likely to be done
Let's be generous and call it $200 million a mile. Of course you can say this price is inflated since the secret tunnel would have been done in the
1960s, but then again, the DoD budget was smaller then, so it all works out.
Roswell to Area 51 is about 580 miles in a direct path. Thus the cost of this tunnel. presuming a straight line, would be 116,000 million, or 116
billion dollars. I didn't bend the path to Edwards since the cost is already quite insane.
"Hello, Congress, I'd like $116 billion for a tunnel."
"Yes, I know we are the air force and have planes, but a tunnel would be so cool."
"Why do we need it? Well we don't, but you know how we like to waste money in the black budget world."
Podcast about the tunnel
The tunnel was not made with a secret nuclear rock melting device. Nope, just the New Austrian Tunneling Method, which is basic excavation and
Yep, decades later, we still use earth moving equipment.
If you listen to the podcast, unexpected soil conditions added a year and a half to the project. Oh, and they did test bores from above, which would
be required for the Roswell to Groom Lake tunnel project. Yeah, the test bore dudes could use a Texas accent and claim they are looking for oil as a
How about time to build the tunnel? The twin bore excavation ran from 9/2007 until 1/2011. That is 3 years and 4 months, or 40 months. Call it 20
months a mile. With just one crew, the tunnel from Roswell to Area 51 would take a mere 966 years. So to complete this project in a reasonable time
frame, they would need about 100 times the manpower and equipment to do the Roswell to Area 51 tunnel. [Projects over a decade long risk losing
Pretend the manpower wasn't a problem. Acquiring all that bore machinery would attract attention. If you recall the development of the U2, the fuel
was similar to an oil used for bug spraying. The U2 project caused a shortage of that bug spray oil until the manufacturers could ramp up production.
Acquiring material for secret projects is always an issue. Not just for black projects, but in the "white" world as well. If you are Apple and you
order a certain number of LCDs, people can predict some specifications of your next iphone.
