William Tenn's "Project Hush" (short story, satire): On military secrecy

"Project Hush" is a top-secret project of US government - to build some sort of anti-nuclear-weapons system. It involves being the first to go to moon, & to set up some sort of military base there. And doing so in complete secrecy.

All goes well with the landing. A little scouting around their base's ("dome") location reveals yet another, already existing, dome! A scout is sent to find out more, & finds something astonishing...

Fact sheet.
