* Clarksville Base 'ghost town' comes into the light:

In its heyday, the base was an information black hole, though a few clues inevitably surfaced, forming the basis of stories embellished by imagination in the absence of actual knowledge.
Rumors sprang up about a Navy nuclear submarine stored in one of the bunkers, of UFOs landing in fields inside the compound and near-catastrophic (as well as highly improbable) incidents involving armed H-bombs triggered in a careless moment and disarmed just in time before detonation, amid a host of other hair-raising tales.
The reality was less dramatic, if you remove the fact that the place maintained - in a quietly professional and entirely orderly manner - the tools to initiate the end of civilization.
