    Not entirely factual, that report.

    First the evidence that the facility had anything to do with a nuclear programme is pretty thin on the ground. It's actually close to zero, but it makes a good headline. You could find higher than background levels of radiation in many places, particularly tunnels. Ask anyone who lives in Aberdeen and has a cellar :)

    Secondly a substantial underground (tunnel) complex was investigated after the war, so at least some tunnels were known at the time. They comprised one of the sub-plants used in Me 262 production. They have obviously uncovered more of this complex.

    Cheers

    Steve

    Is this the long lost launch site of the Nazi nuclear far side of the Moon mission.
