The Australian younger brother of Area 51, the Pine Gap is Australia’s only No-Fly Zone. According to myriad eyewitness reports, this base stretches for several miles underground and these are just support buildings. Governments like to dig all the time, tunnelling like Prairie dogs to avoid spy satellites. The location is strategically significant because it controls America’s spy satellites as they pass over the third of the globe which includes China, parts of Russia, and Middle East oil fields. This satellite tracking station is situated in the middle of nowhere because that makes it arduous for other countries to intercept the signals emitted from within. FYI, this facility tracks the communications of al-Qaeda and Taliban militants, making it one of the key facilities used in US surveillance, as revealed by Edward Snowden.
