Following the recent internet publication of numerous satellite
photos of the ultra-secret Area 51facility,
we now add these new

I have some older 8x10 photos of this same
Pine Gap base site. They
have been available since 1980 (see Desmond Balls' book, "A Valuable
Piece of real Estate"). Your photos are definitely a later or more
current vintage. There are about four more dishes (balls) and a heap
of newer buildings. These new photos also show one of the many
surface entries to the base which is located deep underground and to
the west of the apparent location.
The above ground portion is nothing more than a superficial - almost
movie set - decoration. The real base has a concentric arrangement
in which the central area is set on a massive set of springs for
shock absorption in case of nuclear attack or earthquake.
The R&D which has been done below ground at the real base site is
truly remarkable.... The base has had an average of 1200 employees
over the years since 1964 when it was first commissioned. These have
been divided into three work areas concentric to the core platform.
Each area is tightly controlled by security systems.
Persons working in one area must wear a certain color of ID meant to
match the color ribbon running along the walls everywhere. Persons
working in the outer area "C" never get into the areas "B" and "A".
Australian personnel at the base never get past area "C" and usually
have menial jobs. Former prime Minister Gough Whitlam was deposed
because he was going to try to get the base closed. He was mainly
angered because he couldn't find out what was really going on inside
A number of well known aerospace companies including
and Texas Instruments of Dallas Texas have had facilities there....
It was the cream of postings in the seventies. IBM,
Collins, TRW and
E Systems were the primary contractors to start with but the group
grew over time.
