Titan II Missile in Silo, from Level 7
12 December 2009. Titan II launch site 571.1, near Tucson, AZ.
Looking up from the bottom of the missile in its silo, 7 levels below ground. For some reason it was at this moment that the reality hit home that these missiles, and their successors, are not mere strategic abstractions, but are actually pointed at something. And there were, and still are, similarly deadly missiles pointed at us.
