WHITE SANDS MISSILE RANGE (AP) — The southern New Mexico desert site where scientists set off the world’s first atomic bomb test in 1945 opens for tours the first Saturday in October.
All adults visiting Trinity Site on White Sands Missile Range must show a photo ID.
Visitors can take a quarter-mile walk to ground zero, where an obelisk marks where the bomb was exploded.
The fence surrounding the area displays historical photos.
Visitors also ride a shuttle bus 2 miles to a ranch house where scientists assembled the bomb’s plutonium core.
People can enter the range through the Stallion gate 5 miles south of U.S. 380 between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Oct. 2 or join a caravan leaving 8 a.m. from Tularosa High School’s football parking lot.
The atomic bomb played a huge role in Los Alamos history. It was developed by scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory in the 1940s.
