Some strange place near Mercury - it looks like an alien.

Mercury is a place in Nye County, Nevada, USA, northwest of Las Vegas. It neighbours the Nellis Air Force Range and Nevada Test Site. Mercury includes numerous housing areas for the staff of the test site.

In 1957 in the proximity ( 36°40′0″N, 115°59′0″W) of Mercury several Asp rockets were launched to study the explosion clouds of the atomic bombs in Operation Plumbbob.

Air service is provided at Desert Rock Airport KDRA/DRA.
