Museum of Nuclear Waste

It's been on my must-visit list for years, but owing to my recent obsession with building Dr. Strangelove-style control panels, my need became more pressing. So at last, I made the pilgrimage to The Black Hole, a remarkable place in Los Alamos, New Mexico.

 

Run by a former Los Alamos National Laboratory employee named Ed Grothus, The Black Hole is an improbable combination military surplus outlet, pacifist shrine, and "museum of nuclear waste."

 

Ed was on hand when I stopped by, so I had the opportunity to talk with him, watch his presentation on the perils of atomic warfare, learn about his plans to erect a pair of "Rosetta Stones for the Nuclear Age" in Los Alamos, and, of course, wander the aisles.

 

Feel free to do the same, via the entire "Black Hole" photoset.
