Remember your past or you're doomed to repeat it

This humble little building was the world's first full-scale nuclear reactor. It is about 20 minutes from our house. It produced plutonium for the world's first atomic explosion in the New Mexico desert and for the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki, Japan. It is currently being considered for national historic status. It stopped production in 1968. It is important to remember, to learn and never forget what man is capable of doing.

Truer words were never spoken. Unfortunately, we do have a habit of forgetting.....
