Papazian, G. R. (n.d.). The New World of the Nevada Test Site. Retrieved from

Excerpt: The Nevada Test Site (NTS) has been an integral part of many Los Alamos National Laboratory programs for more than 50 years. In 1951, Los Alamos conducted the first nuclear event at the NTS. It was the atmospheric shot Able, an airdrop of 1 kiloton in Area 5 (referred to as “Frenchman Flat”). Many weapon tests, both atmospheric and underground, were conducted until the 1992 moratorium on nuclear testing. The Divider event carried out by Los Alamos in September 1992 was the last underground nuclear test. The moratorium challenged us, the Laboratory staff, with the task of maintaining the capability to return to nuclear testing, should that be necessary, and of identifying and nurturing a niche where we could be relevant to the emerging stewardship mission while maintaining close ties with our proud past.
