  • Society offers bus tour to Trinity Site

    On July 16, 1945, the first man-made nuclear explosion was detonated in the pre-dawn darkness in the high desert ranchland about 30 miles southeast of Socorro.

    It has been 67 years, but there are still some hale and hearty guys around who participated in that test, and a couple of them have agreed to accompany a bus full of Los Alamos Historical Society members to Trinity Site for the April 7 public opening.  

    This rare chance to rub shoulders with history is a fund-raising effort for the Los Alamos Historical Society as it is launching into major long-term enterprises in historic preservation and interpretation for the future.
