    1945: The United States exploded its first experimental atomic bomb in the desert of Alamogordo, New Mexico; the same day, the heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis left Mare Island Naval Shipyard in California on a secret mission to deliver atomic bomb components to Tinian Island in the Marianas.

    Iíve been there in New Mexico, sort of... Thereís a small pullover by the side of the highway, but the actual site is miles away, perhaps for good reason. You might glow if you get too close.
