  • On December 7, 1962, President John F. Kennedy along with Vice President Lyndon Johnson traveled to Los Alamos.

    Their visit to the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory, as LANL was then known, was for a briefing on the details of the top-secret Project Rover, the Lab’s program at the CMR to develop nuclear rocket engines for space travel. After the tour of the lab, Kennedy went to Sullivan Field to address Los Alamos residents and then rode down Central Avenue in a motorcade.

    For many people who were there, it was something they will never forget. The Bradbury Museum is featuring some of the artifacts from Kennedy’s memorable 100 minutes in Los Alamos through August.
