Have you ever thought of living in a bomb-proof space station? No, right? I mean, I don’t want to judge anyone, but I don’t think the majority of us ever dreamed in owning a nuclear bomb-proof space station.

Jamesburg Earth Station received the first images from the moon in 1969 and it can be bought today for $2.95M. Isn’t it hard to believe? According to Curbed, the “Cold War-era building was designed to withstand a five-megaton nuclear blast, plus it can transmit data worldwide, provided the buyer has a satellite already in orbit. For more terrestrial uses, the complex consists of 103 acres, the 11-story dish itself, the adjacent bomb-proof building, a good old-fashioned barn, a helicopter landing pad, a three-bedroom house, and even a basketball court.”

I ask… Can anyone buy something like that?

Now, you take a good look at this place and tell me if you think it’s Cool or Fool to own a bomb-proof space station. Believe me, I never thought I’d ask you this!


She’s a Beauty. Or is she?

Can you imagine if you start dating a person and he/she invites you over for the first time and you see THIS as you enter the “property”? Would you do get in? 🙂

I See the Moon

It’s hard to believe you can actually own the place that receive the first images from the moon! Out of this world. Yeah… literally!

Call Me



The station.

Spider Web

I’d love to know who will buy this place.


I can picture a person buying this for its history and creating a museum here.

From the Movies

This place would be for a movie.


Please, don’t touch anything!

Lost in Translation

Continue not touching anything! Don’t move! Don’t breath. Stay still! 🙂

Out of Place

A red barn? Are you kidding me? Why would these people build a barn? Really odd.

What are your thoughts on this place? Is it cool or fool ?

* “Cool or Fool” happens every Friday. I’ve started this section where I post “different” and controversial things that I know some of you will love and others will not. The point is to tell us what you really think, regardless of anything. It’s a space where you speak your mind and analyze what you see. Have fun with it and laugh along the way!

    It’s fool for me but if my hubby had the money he would buy this in a heart beat. He loves all the out in space stuff.

    How have you been? It’s been awhile. How is Matthew? As you know I went to Sao Paulo last year to help my sis with her baby and I love him so much. He’s huge now, adorable.
    Hope your new year is great so far!!

    Well….it would make sense if they were aliens! Or serious league scientists really invested in their work…just trying to think of the postives, lol.
    Very bizarre, no other words….I mean can you imagine the look on your kids friends faces when they bring them “home” for a playdate!!!
    Hope you are all doing GREAT!

  4. Stacy said,

    Fool! How depressing would that be to come home to, or worse yet, work from every day!? Hope you are well and having a blast with Matthew!

    Congrats to Kathy on her win! Great giveaway and have a great weekend!

    Congrats to Kathy! I’m thinking this is for someone who is a total space buff…maybe no wife involved to care about how it looks – just a man who loves this kind of thing and doesn’t care about the asthetics! 🙂 Or, like you said, for a museum…!

  7. Karen said,

    Congratulations to Kathy! No, would not want to go near this “station”. But the red barn on the other hand……have a super weekend!

  8. Kathy said,

    Yipeee I won…I am so excited can’t wait to pick out something very *cool* !!! Thank you so much Luciane!!!!!

  9. Taylor Greenwalt said,
