Life Inside a Nuclear Missile Bunker

(Youtube Direktbunker, via Laughing Squid)

Die gestern von Joshua Topolsky (ehem. Engadget) gelaunchte Seite The Verge hat ein nettes Special über Leute, die in alten Raketenbunkern leben: Condo at the End of the World – Life Inside a Nuclear Missile Bunker. Falls Ihr NC schon länger lest, werdet Ihr vielleicht feststellen, dass ich fast alle dort vorgestellten Projekte hier schon verbloggt habe, aber ich bin’s ja langsam gewohnt, dass ich im Netz nichts wirklich neues mehr finde. Wie auch immer, Snip von The Verge:

The Survival Condo Project is a nearly 200 foot deep, nuclear blast-hardened hole in which contractors recently built a steel frame, not unlike that of a skyscraper. Once complete, the facility — located somewhere in the middle of Kansas — will offer half and full-floor residential units designed to withstand floods, electromagnetic pulses, and indirect nuclear strikes (among other things) for $2 million or $4 million, respectively. Features include “redundant infrastructure for power, water, air, and food; as well as ‘shared or common’ facilities for extended off-grid survival.”
