Question:
As mentioned in the IVLV Email newsletter this week, the Nevada Test site successfully set off a sub critical nuclear experiment. Since the test site is only 85 miles away, does this bother you or make you not want to visit or live in Las Vegas? Why or Why Not?
 
Reader Poll Replies:

I don't think it matters to me because those tests are conducted under ground and watched very carefully.  So I will continue visiting Vegas without any worries.  Barb C  Florida  

This ought to be good.  Can't wait for someone to say its fine to detonate atomic bombs near where I live. are you crazy. its scary is what it is. less that 90 miles from your home and work. ever hear of venting?  Like the human body any object inside comes to the surface usually. they have the ability to sent the these tests into space but don't because of the costs. but what the heck, humans have been ignored forever when it comes to science. for the greater good is a good saying. and answer me this?? we know they work, why test them anyway.  Ralph

 I am not afraid of a small test site. Nevada is not going to be the cause of the end of the world.  JoAnn Jodar

Whenever my husband and I visit LV we know we are going to have a good time. If anything drastic were to happen on our trip (we will be in LV 3/8/06 to 3/14/06) hopefully it would be at the end of our trip. We are not worried at all, in fact if my husband and I were to depart this earth at the same time our children and grand children would reap great rewards! My husband and I really would rather be together should any of these tests go haywire!  Cindy Kocol

* These tests make you a little leary of visiting Nevada because of the radiation produced from these tests. I don't think I for 1 would want to visit the area, yet alone live there. You must know what affect this has on the water in the area.  Sincerely,  Gene Krings

* Where can I get observer tickets?  A "sub-critical" test is one that doesn't go "boom". They've been making things that go "boom" 85 miles North of Las Vegas for decades. I would be more concerned if they were still doing it above ground. Nuclear testing is not an issue for me planning trips to Las Vegas. What does concern me is price and availability of drinkable water in the casinos and hotels (yeah I know, if I want water, buy a well drink); electrical shortages due to increasing flow for the salmon runs in the lower Colorado river (or is that the Snail Darter?); Nevada residents opposition to letting me send my spent
nuclear waste through your state to Yucca Flats for long-term storage. We're so scared of this stuff that we built a park around the "temporary" storage lagoon, and families go there to picnic on sunny days.  Man and his structures were never meant to exist in the fragile environment of the Nevada desert. Is it ethical for one intolerable intrusion to suggest that another should not be there? The Nuclear Test Facility is just one part of the grand mosaic that makes Nevada interesting.
