Bahnhof And Wikileaks In Stockholm
Once a nuclear bunker, this facility now houses the WikiLeaks servers. It’s safe to say the U.S. State Department won’t be pulling any plugs here in the near future — the facility is buried 100 feet beneath the streets of Stockholm and the servers are stowed away behind a 1.5-foot-thick steel door.
Home to 1.7 million square feet of vault space located some 200 feet below ground, Iron Mountain protects some invaluable artifacts and documents: the charred remains of Flight 93, the original photo of Einstein sticking out his tongue and Edison’s light bulb patent, to name a few.
Iron Mountain houses both government and private valuables, though it’s impossible to say who owns what’s inside the mountain — the identities of almost all vault owners are classified to the public.
