The German idea of an underground missile silo was adopted and developed by the United States for missile launch facilities for its intercontinental ballistic missiles. Most silos were based in Colorado, Arizona, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and other western states away from heavily populated areas. They had many defense systems to keep out intruders and other defense systems to prevent destruction. One method used for storage was placing them vertically in underground silos, like the Titan I. They were fueled in the silo, and then since they could not be launched from within the silo, were raised to the surface to launch. Continue reading for more pictures of an abandoned facility.

German teen Andrej Ciesielski traveled to Cairo, Egypt with the intent to rooftop - hang off the edge of - one of the three massive tombs at Giza. So, he scaled the 4,575-year-old wonder, and managed to captured incredible photos of the desert landscape, and risked 3-years in prison doing so. "It took me about eight minutes to get to the top of the pyramid and I listened to music on the way up. After a few minutes climbing, I started to attract a bit of attention and some of the security shouted to me to come down in Arabic. I had asked locals what they thought of my attempt and they warned me that it was illegal to climb the pyramids, although I thought it would be fine, what with Egypt's dependence on tourists. It was absolutely surreal standing on top of one of the wonders of the world and something that I will never forget. When I got back down, the police were quick to take me to the station and question me. They also had a look at my camera to see what I had been up to. At first, they wanted to take me to the German embassy, but after a while I was released without anything further happening," said Ciesielski. Click here to view more pictures of the crazy stunt.
