The Georgia Nuclear Aircraft Laboratory conducted research toward the development of nuclear-powered aircraft. The site occupied 10,000 acres and is now a wildlife management area. Remains of structures, including the hot cell, may still be seen.

Not the location I would expect to find a government lab. Sort of creepy... Like maybe the nuclear aircraft thing is a "cover" (where is the runway?) and really they were doing research into man-ape fighting zombies? I find the fighting zombie idea much more believable at this fairly remote location!

This is legitimate; I checked it out extensively. Take a look at CANEL (http://virtualglobetrotting.com/map/pratt-and-whitney-plant/) and at SNAP-50 (Strategic Nuclear Aircraft Program). Tests of a nuclear engine were performed in Idaho.
