A renewed sense of urgency drives well-known pacifist Edward Grothus to secure a site to erect massive twin monuments he designed to commemorate the historic role Los Alamos has played in the Nuclear Age.
Cancer has returned to the 84-year-old, recognized in Los Alamos and around the world for his political activism on the side of peace and nuclear disarmament. He is working harder than ever to find a home for what he calls his “doomsday stone” monuments.
“These Rosetta Stones for the Nuclear Age are important to the history of Los Alamos and the world,” Grothus said. “Los Alamos is rightfully proud of the work it has done at the laboratory. Their work ended WWII and saved millions of lives. Memorializing Los Alamos as the foundation of the Nuclear Age is a historical fact.”
Nearly two years ago, Grothus located a supplier in China. He commissioned the twin granite monuments, which rise some 42 feet into the air and weigh 40 tons each. They are topped with black granite spheres measuring 1 meter in diameter and inscribed with the hex-pent design that resembles the shape of the high explosive charges in an atomic bomb.
