Subject: NTS projects frozen in time for past five years

Yesterday's Las Vegas Review-Journal had an article on the NTS and the
arrested state of tests that were in progress when the moratorium took
effect October 2, 1992. The article is at
http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/1997/May-12-Mon-1997/news/5307618.html.

There were also three photos with the article:
http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/1997/May-12-Mon-1997/photos/test1.jpg
shows the Icecap test emplacement tower and the huge crane used to lower
the test rack; Chuck Costa, field director for LLNL, is in the
foreground.

http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/1997/May-12-Mon-1997/photos/test2.jpg was
taken inside the tower, showing the test rack hovering above the doors
to the emplacement hole. For scale, the rack is seven feet in diameter.

And http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/1997/May-12-Mon-1997/photos/test3.jpg
is quite revealing, showing a mock nuclear device within the test rack.
This would have been a classified photo if testing was still being done.
