Los Alamos and the Bradbury Science Museum

I used to be a physicist, so a visit to Los Alamos almost seemed like a pilgrimage to me. A lot of modern technology has sprung from physics, but there has never been a time where a single group of physicists have been so involved with setting the course of human history as when Los Alamos was formed.

The story of Los Alamos is really one of the most compelling ever. Unfortunately I was a bit dissapointed at the outdated and muted presentation at the museum. But it was still fun to see the town first hand.

This is an old supercomputer from the 1970s.
