From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Glenn Campbell, Las Vegas) Date: Mon, 3 Feb 1997 19:51:03 -0800 Subject: Explosive Tests at Soccoro and White Sands Picked this up on the IUFO mailing list, giving background on the northern end of White Sands. It is a response to a vague posting asking for information "south of Alburquerque." The geography on this posting gets a little confusing: It isn't clear whether he is talking about Stallion Site or the mountain above Socorro. Note reference to President Bush making a visit as VP. He was probably also checking up on the local flying saucer program, meeting with aliens, etc. Stallian Site is a complex of buildings at the far north end of White Sands. You can see it from the road you take from Socorro to Alamogordo. -- GC =================================================================== From: email@example.com (A G Barker) Date: Mon, 03 Feb 1997 12:51:21 EST Subject: Re: south of Albuquerque I went to college in Socorro, N.M. and know a (very) few things that went on there. For one, there are a few organizations in connection with N.M> Institue of Mining and Technology in Socorro. One is the Center for Explosives Technology Research, another is Terminal Effects Research and Analysis. Both of these are research/contractors that are involved in explosives/weapons research. When I went there in the mid-80's there was alot of things going on. There were missle tests, shock tube research, shape charge research, SDI research including plasma energy testing ( from what I heard ), depleted uranium shots (with 155 mm guns). They would set up plates of steel several inches thick and fire into then. The velocity would be timed by lasers. The shells would literally burn through the steel. There were explosions on the mountain overlooking the school on an almost daily basis. The mountain is full of Gov. Contracts such as General Dynamics and Mac Donnel Douglass, etc. Bush flew in by helicopter one day when he was V.P. I knew a guy who took part of a test which was to simulate above ground nuclear blasts. They built a town of houses, drive ways, sod lawns and mahoganey staircases (they simulated town was approx. 1/4 mile across). They proceeded to blow it up using a nitrate bomb. That took place at the Stallion Site at White Sands which is about 35 miles away and the entire town thought that there was a nuclear detonation. One summer we built a copy of a certain gov.t building and they blew it up with 3 shots from a large gun. Onther fun thing that happened was they had a captured Soviet MIG and blew that up with I am not sure what. They were very proud of this as they had photos of it in the public hallways.In the photo you could see molten metal shooting out from the impact site. It was very impressive. As fun as all this was, however, there were some darker things going on, however. In the testing areas there are towers that have red flags on them, which are put up if there is going to be any testing, so people stay out of the area. There were several occasions where students were blown up as a result of being sent into the area by mgmt. when there was testing going on. In each case the flags were not up. I myself was sent into such an area and I turned around. I knew a student who was nearly hit by a missle. Other things funny at that college are that the head of the computer system (at the time) was a Mainland Chinese student who was a member of the communist party in China,; there was a large laser in the Material Science Bldg. that used uranium for some reason and there were 2kg of uranium being watched by, get this, a Turkish student who was officially an officer in the Turkish Army. Also, there was a young man who was a very nice guy who became a campus police officer. He informed me, and several other people that there was a lot of funny stuff going on and that he was investigating these things. Then, on a hunting trip, while leaving the hunting area, a guy in the group was "unloading" his .45 and accidently (yeah) shot him straight through the heat, killing him instantly. There is alot of cloak and dagger stuff that goes on in the Central N.M. area, but wjo knows the extant? I'm sure that there are other things going on, and this is probably not what you were looking for, but I hope that this is intersting nonetheless.
