    I've heard of Oak Ridge TN. :) I even went to the museum there while I was a student at UT. ("How 'bout them Vols?!")

    Two things stand out most in my memory of the museum. One is a tiny yellow label with 12 point pica text warning folk to keep back at least 20 feet (6m). The other was the local "prophet" who foretold all the construction and excitement four decades before it happened.

    My father worked on THE MANHATTEN PROJECT at Oak Ridge,we could not leave
    until things happen oversea's. 5U4's were three stories tall, my mom asked my dad
    what was he doing there, (SOMETHING OUT OF THIS WORLD) was his answer.
