State gets closer to historical park

-A A +A

Legislation finally has been introduced in Congress to create a Manhattan Project Historical Park. New Mexico Sen. Jeff Bingaman is the prime sponsor.
The Senate bill is the culmination of a nine-year effort by Bingaman to recognize the founding scientific community of Los Alamos which forever changed the world. Some will say the change was for the worse yet it was a historically significant part of our nation’s history.
Bingaman’s bill isn’t about honoring the Manhattan Project or about the bomb. It is about the incredible effort the country put forth to remain free and the scientific advances made by unlocking the secrets of atomic energy.
Our scientists and policymakers were well aware that they were unleashing a dreadful power. But if we didn’t, others would. Germany, Japan and Russia all were working on a bomb in 1945. If any of them would have been first, the history of our nation would have been very different.
It is amazing that for over 60 years there has been no official recognition or interpretation of such a historic effort. The story is one of frustration, turf battles, obsession with secrecy and political maneuvering.
