SANTA FE (AP) – A group from Los Alamos, once the building site for an atomic bomb, is making an unprecedented trip to a country that was devastated by the weapon.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that Los Alamos Historical Museum representatives are traveling throughout Japan to gain that country’s perspective on the impact of nuclear warfare.
The team will visit several cities including the two that were targeted with the bomb – Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Museum director Judith Stauber says they will meet with a bomb survivor, researchers and leaders of two museums.
The trip has been in the works for two years.
It is partially funded by a $10,000 grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Los Alamos, known as Atomic City, is home to Los Alamos National Laboratory.
