WHITE SANDS MISSILE RANGE, N.M. (AP) — The southern New Mexico desert site where scientists set off the world's first atomic bomb test in 1945 opens for tours Saturday.
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.
