So you've been around the world and seen the best geek sites the major cities have to offer, from Boston to Berlin and back again. But what about some of the most fantastic, out-of-this world geek meccas in some of the most far-flung places on the planet? This extreme guide is designed to bring your geeky self from the manufactured mountain outside Berlin to the plains of New Mexico. We've included a mix of facilities, from high-tech factories to antenna arrays. We even threw in an entire city for good measure. (Good luck getting in, though.) So if you're up for a real adventure this summer, skip the local science museum and check out some of the world's weirdest, most wonderful attractions for the geeks at heart.
