I was able to tour Trinity Site this past October at WSMR with my family. It was such a moving experience. Eerie and rich with history. If anyone ever has the opportunity to do so - do it!

This wasn't my question, but thanks for the info.

IIRC, you did not have a question, but a few erroneous opinions. And you're welcome.

IIRC, that it was the material used in the "Doomsday Device".

Specifically, the following:

" Besides, it's no secret that atomic bombs put out lots of contamination in the form of radiation".

Not according to the City of Hiroshima Web Site.

I visited Trinity in April, 2003. Despite the cold weather, sleet, and rain, it was a great time. It's one thing to read about it, write my senior thesis on the Manhattan Project, but to actually get to walk there was something I had wanted to do for a long time.

There are two other nuclear test sites in New Mexico that one can visit but of course they were underground. One is the test South of Carlsbad and the other is about 60 or so miles East of Farmington.

You consider statement below an erroneous opinion?

"Besides, it's no secret that atomic bombs put out lots of contamination in the form of radiation".

Try "dial an argument". You may find it enjoyable.

The Memphis Belle: A Story of a Flying Fortress - First Motion Picture Unit of the U.S. Army Air Corps
This film is a war documentary produced by one of the "Hollywood Colonels," William Wyler, who joined the Air Force Film unit and recorded the sights and sounds of the last mission of a B-17 bomber known as the Memphis Belle, named after the girlfriend of the pilot. A narrator told the story of the 10 crewmen as examples of simple average American boys doing a tough job. The men and plane were filmed during the bombing raid on the submarine plens in Wilhelmshafen, Germany, "just one mission of j...

Mandrake: "Uh, Jack, Jack, listen, tell me, tell me, Jack. When did you first... become... well, develop this theory?"

General Jack D. Ripper: "Well, I, uh... I... I... first became aware of it, Mandrake, during the physical act of love."

Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: "Hmm."

Yes I do consider the above to be wrong. It's incorrect and misleading. You are trying to imply that McGovern was subject to a considerable amount of radiation from contaminated material near ground zero. The problem with your scenario is that the city of Hiroshima was not at 5,000+ ft. and was not in the core of the nuclear air bust to create a great deal of radioactive contaminated debris. You are guilty of nuclear "gossip". You don't know what you are talking about.

Incorrect and misleading? Implying considerable amount of radiation?

This?:

"Besides, it's no secret that atomic bombs put out lots of contamination in the form of radiation. The fact is, no one will probably ever know if being in that area after the fact, was the cause of his death, many years later".

You have a very wild imagination.

I must have, I always thought that:

"..atomic bombs put out lots of contamination in the form of radiation."

Was the equivalent of: "Implying considerable amount of radiation?"

Are you dyslexic, ignorant of the subject, or just stubborn when your wrong?

Not so!! There are two others God called out early, Rumor is since the bible says it's appointed unto each man a time to die, that they will be the prophets at the wailing wall during the tribulation whom the anti-christ will strike down and they will lay in the open for three days then rise again!!!

ok... I guess.
