When men were men. I don't think we could build anything like this again.With the low testosterone in men today and the feminist training sessions that the military has to go through every month I don't see the military able to do this sort of workWe did so much with so few menNow we have ten thousand men and we can't get even a tenth of this doneLooking at all of the bunkers that were built in Europe and the United States during the 40s and 50s even into the 60s, it is mind-boggling how much was accomplishedOne of the biggest projects was excavating almost a mile across and 250 ft down.in two years time using onsite concrete plants they were able to build a 15 story structure and cover it with 60 ft of soilthere were several of these built that I know of that are still in use todayThere were many more smaller structures, numbering in the 100sMost of those are still in use todayAnd they were built with almost no one knowingNot to mention the missile silos that were builtThose were impressiveseveral of the silos are still in use today is private residences and the bunkers are in use as storage for large data centers

The nuclear core was removed shortly after the camp was decommissioned. As for the "political controversy" promoted by the nuclear power source, it is bunk. Danish liaisons were not only part of the planning, but also took part in the environmental monitoring. What everyone got worked up about was the vertical ablation of the camp into the ice. By 2090, with earlier projections, what is left of Camp Century will be 67 meters below the surface. There are several areas where future liquid meltwater can mix with some PCB's from insulators and other electrical materials (like transformers) left behind to pollute the water, long before it could be detected. However, due to the current warming trends at the northern pole, the ice sheet melt will soon overtake the vertical ablation and begin to expose the camp materials to the surface. Under the NATO treaty, the waste products are solely owned by the US Government and they will be responsible to remove it. At the moment it is being used as a barometer for the lifecycle for certain man made products in long duration cold.

I was stationed at Thule in 1989. Little was left of the ramp and only the rocks outlining the buildings of Camp Tuto were left. Except for a flagpole, there was nothing much above ground. My job was to make certain the contractors that ran the flightline complied with the contract. I went to camp Tuto multiple times dropping off survey teams, ice coring teams, scientists, etc. Tough job! Got to see a lot of the history of the area.Running the flightline has it's perks.When you arrive at Thule and exit the aircraft, you look around and realize that man is not in charge here, mother nature runs the joint. Impressive beyond belief.

THIS had to be highly classified when it was made. Portable Nuclear reactor in 1960? Did you notice the lack of protection being worn by the people working IN THE CORE? WOW.

I was lucky enough too work in a bunch of these sites that had been built in the 50's 30/40 years after they had been built most were still functional.

The camp was abandoned about 1966 because underground facilities cant withstand shifting ice.
