The remnants of the Manhattan Project Prototypes.
Wendover Army Air Base was involved in Project Alberta一the final engineering phase of the Manhattan Project. Over seventy non-nuclear “test shapes” of both Little Boy and Fat Man bombs were dropped as part of the work conducted in Wendover. Some of these components have been recovered and preserved to help tell the story of the atomic missions and the efforts of the Manhattan Project.
