Interactive video lesson plan for: US Builds Secret Base Under Greenland Ice Sheet

Activity overview:

At the height of the Cold War, the US military devised a plan to position a top secret military base within the ice sheet of Greenland. Camp Century was carved from the ice, bearing a remarkable resemblance to the Rebel ice base from the film, "The Empire Strikes Back". Powered by a custom-built nuclear reactor, Camp Century would have provided an ideal strategic location for hidden nuclear missiles. But two years after construction, US planners had a troubling realization. Snow and ice move across the surface much faster than they had ever realized, spelling doom for the isolated, frozen base. | http://www.ahctv.com/what-history-forgot/
