    What was the X-10 reactor?
    The X-10 reactor was an original part of the Manhattan Project in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. It went critical on November 4, 1943. The reactor acted as a pilot reactor, creating the first significant amount of plutonium for the project. Officials were able to see that creating the plutonium worked and built the site in Hanford, Washington to produce the Plutonium needed for the Atomic bombs.
    Did Los Alamos scientists go to Oak Ridge?

    Today 

    The Zone is now open after school, 3-5 p.m. weekdays. It’s open to all school age kids, and a relaxed attitude to noise applies, so if kids want to listen to music, watch a video, or chat with friends, nobody’s going to come by and say “Hush.” All other library policies apply.

     

    Downtown Dogs. A weekly walking group for dogs and humans. The walk starts from Pet Pangaea at 6 p.m. for a stroll around downtown Los Alamos. Bring a leash, no longer than six feet.

    LA Genealogical Association holds first meeting

     

    The Los Alamos Genealogical Association will meet 7 p.m. tonight at the Mesa Public Library. This is the first meeting for this year and will present and discuss several news items and announcements, including updates on the Guaje Pines Cemetery and its status on the FindAGrave and the Billion Graves websites, a report from the FGS Conference recently held in San Antonio, Texas and a short clip from the “Who Do You Think You Are?” TV series on The Learning Channel.

    There will also be a no host dinner, 5:30 p.m. prior to the meeting at China Moon in the Central Park Square. The public is invited.

  • The Mesa Public Library is featuring artwork from a New Mexico artist that is simply “the bomb. ”
    “Detonography: The Art of Evelyn Rosenberg” can be viewed by the public from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. in the upstairs gallery through Sept. 30 and is displayed in conjunction with the Los Alamos ScienceFest.
    Rosenberg will be signing her book demonstrating her technique, “Detonography: The Explosive Art of Evelyn Rosenberg” at 7 p.m. Sept. 11 at the gallery. The signing and talk will be a part of the Authors Speak Series.
    Rosenberg invented the way of making sculpture by forming metal with plastic explosives. She said she has found a way to transform weapons into an artistic creation. “The technique is very dramatic,” she said.
    Originally from Washington, D.C., she was a student of philosophy and English Literature. That background, she said, resonates in her artwork.
    She moved to New Mexico with her husband who worked at Sandia Laboratory. She earned her degree in fine arts and printmaking.
    While studying in Jerusalem, she met a man who was an explosive engineer and so sprung the idea for a type of artwork to explore.

  • Less than a decade after he helped craft the weapons that helped bring an end to World War II, Robert Oppenheimer was stripped of his top security clearance. In a public display played out in the nation’s newspapers, he was removed as even an advisor to the Atomic Energy Commission. Learn more about “Oppie’s” fall from grace when Dr. Jon Hunner, interim director of the New Mexico History Museum, speaks on “Broken by Secrets: Robert Oppenheimer and the Early Atomic Age.” The Free First Friday Evening Talk will be 6 p.m. Oct. 3 in the Meem Community Room.
    Museum admission is free from
    5-8 p.m.
    Hunner, a history professor at New Mexico State University, is author of two books about the Manhattan Project and its aftermath, “Inventing Los Alamos: The Growth of an Atomic Community” (University of Oklahoma Press, 2004) and “J. Robert Oppenheimer, the Cold War, and the Atomic West” (University of Oklahoma Press, 2009).

  • See colors change on the Cumbres

    Anyone in search of the colors of autumn should hop aboard the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad for the best viewing of the fall foliage in the Rocky Mountains. High levels of rain in northern New Mexico and southern Colorado have contributed to the fall leaves changing colors adding to the scenic views. “Thanks to a particularly good monsoon season, we anticipate that this fall will be one of the best years to see the gorgeous colors bursting,” said John Bush, president and general manager. “Autumn is when a ride on the Cumbres & Toltec becomes even more memorable and breathtaking — alight with vibrant reds, oranges and yellows.”
    “People get closer to nature on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad,” Bush said. “The rhythm and speed of the train allows people to slow down and fully enjoy stupendous colors and those ‘aha’ moments. Riding the train and being outside in what I consider to be the most beautiful landscape in the country at this time of year is very rewarding and relaxing. We invite all of you to jump on the train at either of our depots in Chama, New Mexico, or Antonito, Colorado, for what is sure to be a beautiful fall day.”
