Los Alamos app for 1940s ‘Atomic City’ now on Android

LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) – An app that lets users experience Los Alamos during the nation’s top-secret World War II nuclear development program now is available on Android phones.

The Los Alamos Monitor reports that the “Los Alamos: The Secret City of The Manhattan Project” recently was released for Android months after the iPhone app was made public.

The app allows users to enjoy “augmented-reality” while seeing the place as it was in the 1940s. Los Alamos National Laboratory created the app.

During the Manhattan Project, Los Alamos scientists worked to develop the atomic bomb that was dropped on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The program also involved facilities in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and Hanford, Washington.
