Ad: Work at Los Alamos (Jan, 1956)
There is something weird about an advertisement looking for people to build nuclear bombs. I particularly like the fact that they describe the laboratory as having an “air of freedom”.
BARE PLUTONIUM SPHERE…
…NEWEST OF THE CRITICAL ASSEMBLIES AT LOS ALAMOS…
â€” where scientists and engineers, working with some of the Western World’s finest equipment and facilities probe the unknown and seek answers to tomorrow’s problems.
The Laboratory’s program for pioneering in nuclear and thermonuclear power and nuclear propulsion, ranks in importance with the Laboratory’s continuing and ever expanding achievements in atomic weapons research and development.
To top level scientists and engineers, capable of meeting the challenge of independent and original research, application and development work, the Laboratoryâ€”with its air of freedom … the exciting presence of new ideas … the stimulation of important things happening-offers unexcelled opportunity.
Los Alamos itself, nestling among the pines on the lower eastern slope of the towering Jemez Mountains, is a delightful small cityâ€”an ideal community and climate in which to live and raise a family.
