The U.S. and Russia maintain top-secret underground
bunkers designed to protect government leaders during a nuclear attack. Now you
can tour two of them.

To accompany a new article
by CNS expert Jeffrey Lewis, the Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) has
modelled the U.S. Raven Rock Mountain Complex and Russia’s Kosvinsky Bunker in the
video game Minecraft, creating a virtual world for players to interact with and
explore.  In his article, Lewis evaluates
the enormous scale and cost to sustain these elaborate facilities, and he raises
important questions about each country’s attachment to nuclear deterrence. Lewis’
article also contains two 3D models of the facilities for readers to examine,
right on NTI’s website.
