Walking down the fence-line, the author took a picture of a man in a dun-colored bucket hat and striped seersucker camp shirt taking a picture of "The explosion at.025 seconds." In that light, the Manhattan Project was an extreme recycling program: reused metallic refuse from the Big Bang propelled the US into sustaining a dicey global military-industrial dominance. Metals, elements with heavier nuclei than hydrogen and helium, were formed when stars ended their lives in supernovae explosions. The dynamics of planetisimal accretion distributed uranium unevenly across the globe. Production process diagram is abstracted for composition. Actual ponds are enormous and the tailings piles are windblown with erosion cracks running down their slopes, for instance. The impact of 15 uranium ore-trucks a day passing through the monument might be insidiously toxic.
