I have an offbeat question for anyone that can provide an answer: how far in distance is the largest hangar at A51/Groom Lake to the nearest mountainside? Looking at the PRC AF and the North Korean underground hangars, I can't dismiss the possibility of there being one or more of these facilities at A51. JB
Also, is it possible to detonate a small (clean?) thermonuclear device to excavate an area for aircraft storage, or would it be too radioactive to consider that possibility? Wasn't Edward Teller an advocate for using nukes in this manner?
