    "The efforts of the Manhattan Project finally came to fruition in 1945. After three years of research and experimentation, the world’s first nuclear device, the “Gadget,” was successfully detonated in the New Mexico desert. This inaugural test ushered in the nuclear era."

              We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.
              Old guy here in town claimed that the weather in NM changed after the blast, historically the Mountainair they dry land farmed pinto beans, very few people had wells, they would come to town and fill up their tanks for household water. That changed in the 1950s the rains quit coming lots of people just had to pack up and leave, story goes that the local stores peole just walked in and signed deeds over to their property to pay the bills. We are still in a drought, you can drive by places and see where it was marshy at one time.

                not the first time he quoted hindu text either.

                it's got to be a total mindfuck to know that what you're about to do has the possibility of destroying the entire planet, but that if you don't do it the entire planet as you know it will be destroyed anyhow.

                certainly he felt guilt, as he later stated that the physicists knew that they could never undo their sin.

                  I wonder if the folks that created disco had the same apprehensions.

                            Find Papoose lake on Google maps, it’s south of Groom lake (Area 51). Look to the west of Papoose lake you will find a shit load of craters from testing

                              And there is also a site with concentric rings that looks like target from satellite view.

                              Havent looked for it in almost 20 years so unsure where to point for others to see it.
