Doomsday: 5 Minutes to Midnight

High Security sign

This sign at the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site is a stark reminder of how closely we could have come to destroying humanity.  This site in South Dakota was just one of over 1,000 missile silos in the Midwest and Great Plains.  Each silo contained a nuclear-tipped missile that could vaporize a city in the Soviet Union within 30 minutes.  Yet the threat of nuclear destruction is far from over.  Please check out our Minuteman Missile photo tour for more terrifying information.
