Inside the Cheyenne Mountain complex

Postposted on Mon Aug 13, 2012 10:37 am

The local NBC affiliate jumped through the requisite flaming hoops to both get a tour inside of Cheyenne Mountain and be in possession of a camera while doing it:

Regrettably, no captions. Some of the mongo blast doors and spring-loaded shock barriers, I had heard about before. Also, no longer capable of fully resisting a modern warhead yield, I've heard, which is part of the reason they no longer keep it quite as secret as they used to. Pretty interesting photos though. It's a classic example of the 1950s/1960s engineering ethos: if at first you don't succeed, use twice as much material and then bolt it down into solid bedrock.

But...is there a Stargate there?
Being an adult doesn't mean you have to know what you're doing. It just means you have to look like you know what you're doing.

Also famous as Crystal Peak fallout shelter for the terminated, it will soon be renamed VAULT S5 in honor of the classic Japanese robot anime.
