Photo by Scott Haefner: After the Bombs

Looking through the blast lock area (lit with a blue gel’d flash) towards the launch control capsule.

The heavily reinforced blast lock area, where crews descended 35-feet underground into the complex, was covered by a pair of 6,000 pound steel blast doors designed to protect the launch center from a nuclear attack or an explosion in the missile silo.

Thanks to Jon for lighting up the launch capsule for me.
