This is where the worlds first nuclear explosion took place in New Mexico. It was the trial test of the devices made to drop on Japan, which were exploded a week before the Hiroshima bombing. The heat generated in the test was so hot that the sand turned to glass and made a substance dubbed Trinitite which you can still find lying on the ground.

Twice a year the government allows people in to ground zero to view a small monument to the test. Also a replica bomb sits on view on a trailer just for the day.
