As the drama continues in WGN’s new series, “Manhattan,” there was another great turnout for the Los Alamos Historical Society’s viewing of the third episode.
“Manhattan” presents a fictionalized look at life in Los Alamos during the Manhattan Project. Below are some of the common questions that we heard that night and on social media. Every week the Society will be updating a bulletin board in the Museum to continue exploring questions and reactions as the 13-episode series continues.
Previous episodes are discussed on the website, losalamoshistory.org, on our Facebook page, and in the museum.
Join the Los Alamos Historical Society Sundays at Time Out Pizzeria in Los Alamos from 8–9:30 p.m. for a viewing and discussion of Manhattan (TV-14 rating).
Were they swimming in Ashley Pond?
Most likely Colonel Cox was not swimming at Ashley Pond since the Pond was closed early on during the project due to a fatal accident that occurred. He could be swimming at a pool that was located near Anchor Ranch (today known as S Site).
Did the Project use polygraphs?
