By Special to the Monitor


As part of the Los Alamos Historical Society’s 2012-2013 lecture series, “History and Science,” John A. Andersen will present, “Hiroshima and Nagasaki 2010,” at 7:30 p.m. March 12 at Fuller Lodge.  

“Hiroshima and Nagasaki 2010” is a pictorial tour of the peace parks and museums at the locations of the two U.S. atomic bombings of Japan in August 1945. 

The epicenters are visited, numerous monuments and shrines are shown, and some impression is given of the groups of Japanese people in visitation. Local travel arrangements and the reception as a visitor and the hospitality accorded are noted. A brief view of the Japanese cultural icons in Kyoto is added as an adjunct to the primary trip destinations.

Andersen joined Sandia Corporation as a mechanical engineer early in 1955 and within two weeks volunteered for Operation Teapot in Nevada, where he was a microbarograph operator close in to some large detonations. 

Upon return to New Mexico, he began working with Los Alamos on the W25/MB-1 nuclear air defense emergency capability project. A 50-plus year career ensued, including many joint projects with people on the Hill.
