Now, a documentary crew is looking to see if the urban legend is true. Canadian-based Fuel Industries won the approval by Alamogordo, New Mexico to excavate the location to find the carts. The crew will be aided by a former garbage company owner, Joe Lewandowski, who claims he knows the location of the carts.
Meanwhile, Alamogordo is pleased to have the attention, "I hope more people find out about Alamogordo through this opportunity that we have to unearth the Atari games in the landfill," stated Mayor Susie Galea. She is probably eager to not be constantly overshadowed by Roswell.
