Although it seems to be made of myth and legend, the secret military installation tucked inside Archuletta Mesa in Northern New Mexico remains a mystery.
Tales of alien experimentation, torture, and genetic experiments have echoed through UFO lore for decades. But is it true?
In the beginning of 2009, I was asked to produce and write a one hour episode of UFO Hunters on The History Channel on this very base. I thought to myself, what could we find, if anything? I knew it would be a challenge.
In the research phase, I called my friend John Rhodes who was instrumental in offering his research into the base, and how the technology to make a near 5-mile base in a mountain was possible.
He detailed the Subterrene, a piece of equipment that rather than drilling and excavating a mountain where you have tons of dirt leftover, this would bore through with a super heated process that would melt through the dirt leaving little trace behind.
As fantastic as the technology seems, I filed FOIA requests for documents relating to this machine. And even though John Rhodes found evidence it was tested, I wanted to see what else I could find.
As of this writing, only one document was found. But you can tell by the pictures - the technology works.
