An excavation team earlier this year dug down to the blast doors of a decommissioned Minuteman II missile control center near Holden, Mo. To the great relief of owner Russ Nielsen, the doors did in fact open. Since then, crews have cleared out the rest of the concrete and rock that buried the facility, pumped out the water, plugged the leaks and put in some lighting and a ladder. And Nielsen has put the property up for auction on eBay.
