From: email@example.com (guest login) Date: Mon, 10 Feb 1997 22:31:06 -0800 Subject: Secret government stuff - Port Chicago Explosion On the subject of the secrecy maintained around the Manhattan Project, that information did eventually come out. Something else that has never been publicly disclosed (that I'm aware of ) is the so-called Port Chicago disaster. Port Chicago was a naval port in Cal. and as I understand it, a ship lying at port in the harbor suffered a collosal explosion, one that seemed of unusual interest to gov't investigators. The speculation is that this event, which happened before Hiroshima, was actuallly an accidental (or intentional depending on how paranoid you are) atomic detonation. I know this sounds wacky and I did first read of it in Nexus (grain of salt with every page). If anybody has any hard data on this event I'd love to hear it.
