Dig Up Dugway

A long-term project to dig up all available information on Dugway Proving Ground. DPG is a fairly secret facility located in the west desert of Utah. Its official mission is to evaluate, test, and develop biological and chemical agents for the US Army. UFOlogists have hinted that the base's secret status, underground facilities, and low profile make it the perfect place for sequestering of "alien artifacts" and other items of extraterrestrial origin. This claim is nearly impossible to verify given the secret nature of the installation and the dearth of publicly available information on the facility.

The facility includes Michaels Air Force Base, an emergency landing facility for the space shuttle. This facility was to have been a test landing location for the X-33 advanced spacecraft. However that program was over budget, over schedule and eventually killed.
