wire.com: A Rare Journey Into the Cheyenne Mountain Complex, a Super-Bunker That Can Survive Anything

I took a tour of this place one weekday evening when I was in high school, a Church youth activity.

Just as I remember it:

“The tunnel curves ahead of us, a skew that will route nuclear (or whatever) material and send it out through the south entrance. The blast doors that lead to the complex’s buildings branch off from the tunnel at around 90 degrees, so any material will glance off rather than slam into them.”

“Because it’s not enough for the mountain’s welded-metal buildings to sit on springs that can take a nuclear or earthquake hit, which they do . . . “
