Date: Tue, 13 May 1997 09:52:53 -0700 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.
