|Nuclear polar base|
a covered operation
Parte del progetto, non era segreto; la 'copertura' era data da un progetto scientifico in cui gli americani avevano fondato il Camp Century, una base artica, scavata sotto terra a circa 30 metri sotto i ghiacci.
Di seguito, un video della costruzione di Camp Century.
Quello che però gli americani non avevano detto, é che dalla base di Camp Century sarebbero dovute partire delle gallerie che avrebbero dovuto portare a dei silos di lancio di missili nucleari.
La verità si seppe solo nel 1997, anno in cui il Governo danese chiese delle spiegazioni.
Project Iceworm was called , and it was a secret project to the north of Greenland 600 miles from the North Pole only to a field strewn with nuclear missiles and below the permafrost could get anywhere in Russia.
Part of the project was not secret , the ' coverage ' was given by a scientific project in which the Americans had founded the Camp Century , an Arctic base , dug in the ground about 30 feet below the ice.
Here is a video of the construction of Camp Century .
But what the Americans had been told was that the base of Camp Century would be due from the galleries that should have led to the silos to launch nuclear missiles .
The nuclear reactor was put under the ice and started , but after one year they realized that icebergs are mobile, and tunnels built under the ice collapse with time , so the Project Iceworm was abandoned.
The truth was known until 1997 , when the Danish government asked explanations
