The U.S. Army’s Top Secret Arctic City Under the Ice! “Camp Century” Restored Classified Film – In the late 1950s, during the height of the Cold War, the US military constructed a secret base in the Arctic for “research” purposes. Some theorists claim that it was actually used as a covert nuclear weapons storage &/or testing facility as part of Top Secret “Project Iceworm” with the ultimate objective of covertly placing medium-range missiles under the ice sheet — close enough to strike the Soviet Union, while remaining hidden from the Danish government. Others have made even grander claims – that Camp Century was actually a weather manipulation experiment … or a U.S. Military administered Alien / UFO base! The whole truth may never be known. This video is the actual declassified US ARMY FILM documenting the construction process. What really happened there afterwards remains a mystery.

UNITED STATES ARMY RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT – PROGRESS REPORT NUMBER SIX – CAMP CENTURY – Department of Defense 1964 – – THIS IS THE STORY OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF CAMP CENTURY, GREENLAND’S CITY UNDER THE ICE. AFTER U.S. ARMY ENGINEERS SELECTED THE SITE IN MAY, 1959, NEEDED SUPPLIES WERE DELIVERED TO THE WORK CAMP IN A REMARKABLE LOGISTICAL OPERATION ACROSS THE ICECAP. CAMP CENTURY IS NOW AN ARCTIC RESEARCH CENTER.
