ATOMIC MUSEUM TO DEBUT NEW EXHIBIT “THE BOMB WITHOUT THE BOOM,”
THURSDAY, DEC. 15
New Exhibit Answers the Question, “What Happened to our Nukes?”
Working Media Invited to Cover Event
The Atomic Museum invites working media to the official ribbon cutting of its newest, must-see exhibit, “The Bomb Without The Boom,” which answers the question, “What happened to our nukes?”
The exhibit will highlight the Stockpile Stewardship Program and how, with the use of innovative and exciting scientific-based experiments, the United States today can assure the safety and reliability of its nuclear weapons without underground testing in a post-Cold War world. Showing how data gleaned from the use of lasers and small amounts of explosives are fed into super computers, this exhibit will demonstrate how these practices give scientists both peace of mind and confirmation of the viability of U.S. nuclear weapons.
Brigadier General Stacy Jo Huser of the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) will officiate the ribbon cutting.
Thursday, Dec. 15
8:45 a.m. Media check-in.
9 a.m. Opening remarks by Rob McCoy and Brigadier General Stacy Jo Huser.
9:15 a.m. Ribbon-cutting ceremony. Media shoot photos and b-roll of new exhibit; spokespeople available for interviews.
755 East Flamingo Rd.
Las Vegas, NV 89110
