    I'm not following what's already known-knowledge and what was discovered.
    the Chinese are tunneling everywhere, and they tend to run it under their civilian construct budgets. reason #97 why people taking their "defense spending" numbers are false value are either clueless or complicit.

    The obvious riposte is that generally it is the conservatives who are doing the sparking.

    and see, according to your own political compass test, you are a leftist.

    If you think that looks like a woman, I'd hate to see your wife/girlfriend.

    At least I'm not dumb enough to post a link supposedly proving my point that plainly disproves it.

    Re: Georgetown Students Uncover Vast Underground China Nuke Complex

    All I was saying facetiously was that the US has Spy Satellites orbiting the earth continually watching the surface and some acting as an "early warning defense system." And that our military technology was probably superior to China and that their tunnels weren't very important. Our govn doesn't want other countries to know what we really have, do they?

    Satellites, Spy - Keyhole, SIGINT and ferrets, Radar Satellites

    Space-Based Infrared Satellite Systems. An important U.S. satellite system that is now in the process of development is the Space-Based Infrared Satellite System (SBIRS), which is intended to replace the aging DSP early-warning system. SBIRS is intended not only to detect launches, but also to provide detailed tracking information that could be used in antiballistic missile defense. SBIRS will have two components, SBIRS High and SBIRS Low. SBIRS High will consist of satellites in geosynchronous and highly elliptical orbits, much like DSP, but with increased sensitivity. SBIRS Low will consist of a constellation of low-orbit satellites—probably 24, like the SBR Objective System— that will use infrared sensors to track missiles' trajectories for the purpose of guiding defensive systems such as interceptor missiles. Whether the proposed antiballistic missile system of which SBIRS Low would be a part would be effective is technically controversial. The first SBIRS High satellite was scheduled for launch in 2003, and the first SBIRS Low for about 2008.
    Thermographic Infrared Multispectral Scanner (TIMS)

    Originally designed for geological research, TIMS picks up visible, infrared, microwave, and thermal data in a single shot and allows archeologists to examine potential sites in spectral bands best suited to their particular needs. TIMS units mounted onto satellites and aircraft and can detect and image patterns of disturbed soil at high resolution up to 30 feet below ground. This remote-sensing tool is particularly useful for showing buried geologic features, such as ancient river beds, along which people may have settled.

    Also they have a side-looking synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) that can 3-D map the earths surface. Not including Satellite-based GPR (ground penetrating radar).

    Sounding radars: these are low-frequency (normally, HF - 3 to 30 MHz - or lower) ground-penetrating Radars, used to acquire data about the planet sub-surface structure. Thanks to their low operating frequency they can penetrate for hundred of meters, or even kilometers, below the surface. Synthetic aperture techniques are normally exploited to reduce the ground footprint (due to the low operating frequency and the small allowable antenna dimensions, the beam is very wide) and, thus, the unwanted echo from other surface objects.
    The first radar sounder flown was ALSE (Apollo Lunar Sounder Experiment) on board Apollo 17 in 1972. Other sounder instruments flown (in this case around Mars), are MARSIS (Mars Advanced Radar for SubSurface and Ionosphere Sounding) on board the European Space Agency's Mars Express probe, and SHARAD (mars SHAllow RADar sounder) on JPL's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). Both are currently operational. A radar sounder is also used on the Japanese moon probe SELENE, launched September 14, 2007.
    I didn't think you'd even read the link to see that it disproved my x-ray infrared theory because I was yanking your chain half the time. I reached out my hand in friendship in the following post by admitting to BS and you spat at me. It's a shame we couldn't have had a chuckle about it.

    Since you are new, I'll give you the benefit of doubt.

    But here's a hint for future reference: Subtlety, sarcasm, and tongue-in-cheek comments don't translate well in forum posts.

    Re: Georgetown Students Uncover Vast Underground China Nuke Complex

    It wasn't my original intention to be sarcastic or cheeky to anyone in particular. I couldn't see China wanting any direct harm to come to their biggest customer at this time. I thought I was being obviously silly about the Star Wars type lasers and hypersonic missiles. I surely would never have mentioned it had I known someone would take such offense. My apologies

    ps. In my research of advanced weaponry info I stumbled somehow onto a site that listed military contractors all over the web and the stuff they offer to sell to governments I guess, was actually very spooky. It was way beyond my technical knowledge and beyond anything I even imagined they had. I got off that page PDQ and began wondering when men in black suits and sunglasses were going to show at my front door. I feel like Sargent Schultz from Hogan Heroes "I know nothing!"

    Yep, sometimes you can stumble onto sites that you don't really want to see and hope no one knows you ever visited.

    Ya, like random dialing phone numbers as a kid and getting a voice on the line saying "Langley secured, authorization code and id number?" Yikes the spook hotline!

    Good thing we're all smart enough by now NOT to engage in an arms race, right? Please?
