August 1-4 - Albuquerque
The National Atomic Museum (on Kirtland Air Force Base, Albuquerque) has an eerie display of bombs, missiles, and the history of nuclear weapons.
Two hours southwest of Albuquerque is the VLA, a collection of 27
not-so-small radio antennas. A self-guided tour lets you walk up to one
of these antennas to get a feel for its size, and there's a little
museum, complete with a bit on the filming of the movie Contact
(and its embellishments).
