Mostly as advertised, really really cool to check out. This was a missile test site, not a nuclear missile silo. The missiles were stood up and launched from pads, not stored to be launched in case of nuclear war. The military didn’t store uranium at this facility, that’s actually much closer to Green River on the other side of I70 where there was a refinement facility. No need to fear radiation here, we weren’t in the habit of radiating places where people live and work. Having said that this place was used and abused by the military for decades, be careful.
