Deep Underground Military Bases Exposed in The Superunknowns

Deep Underground Military Bases Exposed in The Superunknowns

In “The Superunknowns,” a novel by Austin Reams, Edith is forced to take a polygraph in a deep underground military base.

Edith Song

She and her twin Irene develop supernatural abilities when massive flying objects appear from the sun, and the government wants answers. With each question, the answer silently comes, but some questions have no answer and some answers are not what she expects. She has been told her father is dead, but he is alive in a debtor’s labor camp in middle America, toiling with masses of others in a zombified state, believing they’re still living out normal lives back home.

In a future imprisoned by lies, the virtual world seen through contact lenses has replaced reality. Edith and Irene, who is a Japanese sword master with telekinetic powers, fight to escape and destroy the system which has enslaved millions.


The story of “The Superunknowns” is fiction …. the reality of the deep underground military bases where Edith and Irene are imprisoned is not ….

The US Government has been developing technology to excavate deep underground military bases since at least the 1960s.

In 1967, the US Government obtained a patent for a “tunneling machine … for digging through” dirt and rock driven by a “rotary digging head.”


But conventional power sources of such tunnel digging machines was insufficient. The US Government looked to the nuclear laboratory at Los Alamos to solve the problem.

In 1972, US Patent No. 3,693,731 was approved, issued to the “inventors” from Los Alamos nuclear laboratory, with the “assignee” listed as the United States of America as represented by the United States Atomic Energy Commission, the predecessor of the US Department of Energy.


The new tunneling machine was capable of drilling tunnels by “melting” the earth with nuclear power, leaving behind a supporting wall of glass.


The 1972 invention also included a remote controlled nuclear reactor.


The glass support lining created by the tunneling machine practically eliminated the cumbersome need and prohibitive cost of removing debris created by conventional digging.


The initial designs of the tunneling machine, which would come be be known as the Subterrene, were still insufficient for the building of extensive networks of tunnels because the tunnels were too small for railed trains.

The next US Patent addressed this issue. Like the prior patents, it was issued to inventors from Los Alamos and assigned to the US Energy Research and Development Administration.


By its own terms, the US Government’s 1975 tunneling invention was designed to economically dig tunnels “between cities” for subways.


Key advancements of the 1975 tunneling invention included the ability to dig holes 40 feet across and create a strong “rock-glass” supporting tunnel liner. This essentially created a tougher support structure, and thus, practically eliminated the need for previously cost prohibitive necessity of building support infrastructure after the tunnel was built.


The reality of the production and use of these Subterrene tunneling machines was confirmed by a study by the Los Alamos laboratory, which discussed the problems of occasional cave-ins.


The Los Alamos study confirmed the existence of two types of Subterrenes, and by its assumptions of the capabilities of these machines, stated that each had the capability of digging tunnels over 40 feet wide, at a rate of 36 miles per day (although other estimates have suggested the average may be closer to 7 miles per day), while creating “structurally” sound glass support liners.


Aside from an article in the early 1980s in OMNI magazine, discussing the development of the Subterrene, the development and use of these machines was relatively quite.

However, images of Subterrenes have surfaced in the public. The United States Air Force notoriously developed and tested a tunneling machine.


Other images of unknown source, date and uses have also surfaced.



For the last 40 years, the US Government has continued to tunnel at miles per day, creating a vast network of underground bases in secret under the feet of unknowing Americans.


Underground military bases have been connected by underground rail systems.



While the particular place, time, extent, depth, capability and use of these Subterenes has not been confirmed by open source information, the fact that deep underground military bases have been built and continue to be used under secrecy is fact.

One of the most famous underground military bases is located in Pennsylvania, and believed to be connected to Camp David, which is 6 miles away.


Known as “Site R,” it is no secret that Raven Rock is a deep underground military base used as the alternative to the National Military Command Center, also known as the “underground Pentagon.” It has been speculated that leaders such as Vice President Dick Cheney and others were taken to Raven Rock during the chaos of 911 in 2001.

The existence of Raven Rock is not secret. The layout and use of this facility suggests how to locate and identify other above-ground locations that are also used as entrances to deep underground military bases.

The west entrance to Raven Rock is clearly visible from above.

Key features of the tunnel entrances include a helipad and pedestrian access.

Mt. Weather is also a known relocation site for high levels of US civilian and military leaders in the event of a national emergency. Known as Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center, located in Virgina, is is operated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Of particular interest are the clues at Mt. Weather telling of the existence of the deep underground military base below. The entrances to Mt. Weather are clearly visible from satellite images.


Similar to entrances at Raven Rock, Mt. Weather entrances to the underground base is equiped with a helipad and ample parking for transportation and loading vehicles near the shrouded entrance surrounded by sufficient drainage.

The east entrance of Mt. Weather is similarly designed.

There has been much speculation about where other deep underground military bases have been built in the United States and whether these bases are connected by underground trains. Suspected locations include 29 Palms, China Lake, Edwards Air Force Base, Area 51, McConnell Air Force Base and many others.



This is not speculation, however. Satellite images from open sources such as Google Earth provide clear evidence that underground military bases have been built at many of these locations, and their similarity in design and use shows a probable likelihood that they are connected.


An overhead view of 29 Palms, a secretive military base used by the US Marines, exposes the existence of underground bases. Entrances to the underground base are located at the north west part of the base. An loading area, where large buildings conceal entrances capable of handling heavy cargo, and an “anthill” where multiple pedestrian and lighter load entrances, are there.


The heavy loading area is mostly comprised of three huge buildings.



Similar to entrances at Mt. Weather, heavy loading buildings leading to the underground base are built with helipad-capable landing sites, excessive parking, drainage, and seemingly excessive security. Take a careful look at the size of this building and ask, Where are all the people from those parked cars going? Underground.

Moving northward, the “anthill” where pedestrians and other loading entrances are located for easy access to different levels below comes into focus.

Again, similar to entrances at Raven Rock and Mt. Weather, the entrances to the underground bases at 29 Palms are equipped with parking, security and helipads. Of particular note is evidence of excavation debris discarded from tunneling.

The helipad and pedestrian entrance, where buses can discretely drop off workers to enter layers deep below ground are clearly visible.



Heavier entrances with hanger-sized sliding doors and excessive security are located further north on the 29 Palms anthill.

China Lake is a notorious Naval facility for the testing of advanced weapons that is located north of 29 Palms in California, and is designed with similar feathers as other deep underground military bases.


The “anthill” and heavy loading entrances are located on the north and south sides of the base, respectively.


Pedestrian entrances, traffic signs for buses carrying workers to and from the entrances, and the entrances are clearly visible on the anthill.

Excessive parking spaces are seen around the heavy loading entrances to the south.

To the West, Edwards Air Force Base is also connected via underground tunnels to China Lake, and possesses all of the same indicators of the existence of underground military facilities.

Discrete pedestrian entrances on the Edwards anthill are also visible.



In Kansas, McConnell Air Force Base, which is connected by underground rail, has the same entrance design to the underground military base: accessible heliport, and pedestrian and heavy load entrances.

The existence of deep underground military bases is clear.

What goes on in these bases is a secret.

In The Superunknowns, Edith and Irene Song, are taken for questioning to the facility as 29 Palms. Edith sees first hand what secrets are being kept there. The extent of the type of weapons developed and the design and look of these bases is described in detail in The Superunknowns.



With her ability to know the answer to any fact-based question, Edith struggles to escape from the 29 Palms via the underground subway system to China Lake.
