Get ready for transformation week: not the moment when everything changes in the nuclear weapons complex, but a critical week when sides line up and offer varying, and sometimes emotional, accounts about what should or should be done in the next decade.Los Alamos National Laboratory hosted the first of two bus tours Wednesday, looking to explain a program of consolidation outlined in a Department of Energy environmental statement – and hopefully gather support. A small group of community leaders were taken behind the fence to four nuclear facilities under discussion in next week’s public hearings about transforming the weapon’s complex.They caught a glimpse and heard from top officials about what the lab sees as its most essential needs and its greatest prospects for the future. Another group is scheduled to take the tour on Friday.The visitors included business and educational leaders and heads of community organizations.
