The F series of Atlas missile silo complexes were the last type of Atlas ICBM bases to be built. The construction cost of just the basic concrete underground structures was approximately $15 million dollars each (in 1960 dollars!). Today's current value of the construction cost would be over $107,000,000! The Atlas F silo complex consisted of the main missile silo with an underground tunnel connecting to the LCC, or Launch Control Center. The LCC and silo were only accessible through an above ground entry way. There was an emergency escape hatch which could only be used from within the LCC. The Atlas F LCC was staffed by five man crews.

Yeah, I would've thought space would be the safest place to be too.
Also, for us poor folks, finding some really really deep underground caves to go to.
They are free!
