  • PBS’ new special “The Bomb” tells the story of the most powerful and destructive device ever invented.
    Premiering on KNME-TV/New Mexico PBS, channel 5 from 7-9 p.m. July 28, in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the detonation of the atomic bomb.
    The show highlights how humans harnessed this incredible power and what challenges we have faced living with it for 70 years. “The Bomb” features newly restored footage of nuclear weaponry, some of which has been declassified only recently by the Department of Defense.
    “The Bomb” takes viewers behind the scenes of the first atomic bomb, revealing how it was developed and how it changed the planet, ushering in a new era and reshaping our lives even today.
    Rare footage from bomb tests through the 1950s and ’60s demonstrates the power and strangely compelling beauty of nuclear explosions. The film focuses on the choices society has made — and continues to make — to live with an invention that could destroy the planet.
    Included are interviews with Richard Rhodes, foremost atomic bomb historian, former Secretaries of Defense and State William Perry and George Shultz, scientists, weapons designers, pilots, witnesses and ordinary men and women who have lived and worked with the atomic bomb.

  • The Mesa Prieta Petroglyph Project announces Pláticas Presentations – Geology and Fossils on Mesa Prieta. The lecture will be by Scott Aby.
    The July talk is an ongoing series that will be 6:30 p.m. July 28 at Historic Los Luceros in Alcalde. Aby is a longtime geologist and fossil hunter.
    Like many mesas in New Mexico, Black Mesa is topped by a thin layer of lava, which is resistant to erosion. That is why these mesas stand high in the landscape — because everything else has eroded away around them. The lava on Black Mesa is between 3 and 4 million years old, and is a type of lava that flows easily, usually down valleys. In Mesa Prieta’s case, we know that the bottom of the valley was at the top of the mesa when that lava was erupted. This type of lava (called Basalt) gets a coating on it called “desert varnish” after a few million years. Petroglyphs are made by chipping the varnish off the rocks to reveal the lighter colored “fresh” rock underneath.   

  • Performance > Shocking story and adult subject matter is not suitable for kids

  • Arthur Miller’s tragic tale of a salesman with all the wrong dreams is currently playing on stage at the Santa Fe Playhouse and Ironweed Productions.
    Directed by Scott Harrison, “Death of a Salesman” is a gritty story with a reality check for the lead character of the exhausted traveling salesman, Willy Loman (Campbell Martin), who is going through an inner crisis with himself and his family, particularly his son, Biff (Peter Chapman).
    Willy’s family and friends grow increasingly concerned of his ailing mind, due to Willy’s recent car crash. Willy has become increasing disappointed with the neighbored in Brooklyn in which he lives and the fact that he is unable to plant anything. He feels “lost in the greatest country in the world.”
    Willy’s life is plagued with secrets, lies and uncertainty throughout, along with flashbacks of good days gone by. His actions reflect on the entire family. He is obsessed with being known and liked, yet his personality seeps with insecurities.
    Loman’s sons Biff and Happy are grown up and have issues of their own, mostly because of Willy’s antics.
