    Seeking records of American facilities in the Canary Islands

    Ismael Rodríguez Wayfarer

      Dear colleagues, I am currently researching to publish an article about the American facilities in the Canaries between 1960 and 1970. Particularly, the facilities that I am looking for are two: the first one is the NASA station established in Maspalomas (south of Gran Canaria island) to follow the Mercury project. The second one is the radio station established on the island of La Palma in connection with the Sound Surveillance System (SOSUS). In essence, this radio station had the function of processing the data from the Polaris and Poseidon missiles falling in the Atlantic in the context of the Cold War.  I would be very grateful for any information that could be provided. Thanks for everything.
