I've been fascinated with the Aerojet site since my first visit in 1964 as a 7 yr. old fishing with a neighbors uncle who was a construction engineer there. Once I went into the silo with 2 friends on a dare and we camped under the rocket motor, although we were driven out by mosquitoes and some fumes that gave us headaches. I still go out there at least once a week (weather permitting) and occasionally haul trash left by the less considerate visitors. I've discussed the "mystery mound" with a few people, some think it may have been an observation post for NASA although the vent tubes are puzzling. East of the rocket silo is a site we always called the EOD site (Explosive Ordnance Disposal). I thought it had been scraped and removed since it was barely visible on Google Earth but recently found it again. It has a heavily fortified blast bunker and a concrete lined fire control basin, along with various pieces of old torpedoes and other items. Thanks for filling in a few voids in my memory, I'll be out there tomorrow morning again.

I enjoyed your story on the Aerojet plant. I live right down the road from the Thiokol plant that tested the other booster that competed against this one. My family has worked at the facility since it began. I enjoyed the history lesson you gave us. This location where I live is being looked at to be opened as a space port so I have been trying to look up some of the old photos and films I have but not much has survived.

Google Earth photos dated 3/6/2013 show some trucks parked near the Aerojet Cast and Cure Shed. I wonder what they're up to?
