Nike Launch Pad A long exposure of the launch pad and its dedicated guard shack. In the middle of the base is a tall antenna which was part of the MARS program during the Gulf War. The MARS program helped connect calls between deployed soldiers and their families. Similar Images ...based on the tags: antennae, black&white, guard-shacks, lights, long-exposures, trees... There are 700 of these storage bunkers. Their design was to funnel explosions upward, rather than toward other buildings, to minimize secondary explosions.

Raab A heavy steel rail door to help funnel explosions upward, rather than outward. A yellow house above the mineshaft. The last of four radar domes on the base. The great entrance to the Service Building shows the detail once present in the old hospital. Old conveyor belts are draped over the sides of the ore chutes to cut down on the noise and wear of the dumping trains. Looking up at the LEMP malting plant elevator. Look at that BRICKWORK!
