Why is the Navy in the Desert?
The last time our area had an ocean anywhere even close was a billion years ago but, since 1946, Navy personnel have been stationed at White Sands Missile Range.
Today is Atomic Bomb Day!!
Today, July 16th is the anniversary of the first atomic bomb test. Conducted at White sands in 1945, the bomb went off without destroying the fabric of universe (which was reportedly a thing that some of the physicist thought could happen).
