Trinity Site, New Mexico, marks the testing of the world’s first atomic bomb on July 16, 1945. Today the area surrounding the original test site is named the White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) and remains active in the steady advancement of increasingly sophisticated military technologies. Two days each year, WSMR hosts an Open House and thousands of visitors come to experience where the atomic age began.

 

From 2014 to 2019, Mary Kavanagh conducted interviews with over 200 visitors to the Trinity Test Site.
