June 15 - Mine Storage

The potential for storage in this huge mine became known in 1959 and the mine now houses movies, costumes for movies, and all sorts of other things.  There once was a plan to put nuclear waste in the mine and let the mine seal itself shut but the plan fell through when scientists discovered that it would take 500 years for the mine to close just 1".
