I went as a tourist to Trinity site , New Mexico ... it was spooky , in more than one way ; but- especially from a health standpoint .
Breathing that low-level dust will kill a percentage of workers, I would guess .
I hope they don't put it ion some stupid place ... like above and close to a major river . I guess it's low level,though ... so - why worry ?
Thanks , S&F.
