Trinity siteTrinity

Trinity is a DOE facility for 1945, 1952, 1967 and workers are eligible to file Part B and Part E claims.

The Trinity test was the first nuclear weapons test, which took place in July 1945 at the Alamogordo Bombing and Gunnery Range. It was designed to determine whether the implosion method could be used to detonate a nuclear weapon composed of plutonium. The Trinity test involved the open air detonation of a nuclear device placed on a metal tower.

  It is located in the northern part of White Sands Missile Range bout 30 miles west of Carrizozo, New Mexico.
