Experience history coming to life when Dr. M. Jimmie Killingsworth presents, Nuclear New Mexico: The Tour, on Friday, October 20, 7 p.m., in the San Juan College Little Theatre.

First there was eco-tourism. Now there is nuclear tourism. The two have more in common than you might think. When the first atomic bomb exploded at Trinity Site in July, 1945, Robert Oppenheimer invoked his famous phrase, “destroyer of worlds,” the destiny of the environmental movement, “saving the planet,” also sprang into being. The power to destroy and the power to save the earth, once allotted to the Gods, fell into human hands for the first time in history.

This presentation offers a meditation on the new status of humanity and a virtual tour that mixes still photography with a talk based on the book that is still in progress by Dr. Killingsworth and Jacqueline Palmer with photography by James Frost.

The Chautauqua performances are free and funded by the San Juan College Foundation, and presented by the San Juan College Encore Program, KSJE 90.9 FM, and the New Mexico Humanities Council.
