Declassified: Camp Century, Top Secret U.S. Army Arctic City Under the Ice

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 and/or testing facility. Others have made even grander claims - that Camp Century was actually a weather manipulation experiment or a U.S. Military administered Alien UFO base!

This is the actual declassified US ARMY FILM documenting the construction process.

Reddit Restores 87 yo Grandad's Navy Photo

My Grandad was in the Royal Navy in WWII, in the submarines. I went over to set up his new PC that I'd made for him a few weeks ago and he showed me a photo that a relative had emailed him, of him in his uniform back when he was about 20. The photo was in a bad state and I said I'd see what I could do to sort out some of the cracks, so emailed it to myself to see what could be done.

I went onto Reddit and posted it on Pic Requests ( to see if anyone could help out. Here's the original post:

The people on there were amazing and I ended up with some brilliant results, so I printed them off and framed my favourite one to give to him. My girlfriend kindly recorded it for me, so that I could share his reaction with the people who helped make it happen!

Boston Dynamics PETMAN Robot

The PETMAN robot was developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from the DoD CBD program. It is used to test the performance of protective clothing designed for hazardous environments. The video shows initial testing in a chemical protection suit and gas mask. PETMAN has sensors embedded in its skin that detect any chemicals leaking through the suit. The skin also maintains a micro-climate inside the clothing by sweating and regulating temperature.
