Holy Trinity

Today, July 16th is the Anniversary of the Trinity test at White Sands, NM. The first explosion of a Nuclear weapon... ever.

60 years ago at 15 seconds before 5:30 am (Mountain War Time) Dr. Oppenheimer's project gave birth to the atomic age.

So, happy birthday to the weapon that allowed us to avoid a costly (in lives and monies) ground war on mainland Japan, and the proliferation of which allowed us to spend the former Soviet Union into collapse, and which in the wrong hands could potentially be the end of civilization as we know it. The true holy trinity... Savior, Protector, Destroyer.
