#809: Los Alamos
[[Three stick figures stand in front of a few graphs and scientific looking pictures. One of them has hair.]]
Los Alamos, 1945…
Middle Figure: We have a decision. If we’ve done our math right, this test will unleash heaven’s fire and make us as gods.
Middle figure: But it’s possible we made a mistake, and the heat will ignite the atmosphere, destroying the planet in a cleansing conflagration.
Left figure: Wow. Um. Question: Just to double-check - although I’m 99% sure -
Left figure: Is it “Soh cah toa” or “coh sah toa”?
Middle figure: Oh, for the love of… can someone redo Steve’s work?
Right figure: I don’t want to do the test anymore.
