I don't recall the movie ever specifying the exact location of the SHIELD/NASA base. The tie-in comic book also featured the base, but I think it only placed it outside Albuquerque. Anyone else remember?

The comic also explained how the Destroyer armor fell into SHIELD's hands. After Thor defeated the Destroyer and returned to Asgard, Hawkeye and a team of agents found the armor abandoned in the street where it fell. Coulson had it hauled away to an airfield and flown to a SHIELD facility, where it was studied for a year before they figured out how it worked. Once Coulson saw the energy beam fire, he ordered the main scientist to "shrink it down and put a trigger on it". That's how he got his BFG.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
