Except, you're alone.

So, I'm alone.

You're alone too.

Yeah but, I mean, I've had

plenty of experience.

And who says I haven't?

You don't know your

ass from your armpit.

You mean elbow, don't you?

- Are you always so friendly?

- When I feel like it.


You're thirsty...

You came into the canyon

with no water?

- I forgot it.

- Here.

Hey, easy, easy.

You'll get sick.

So, what's your name?

Uh, you can call me...


Is that a first name

or a last name?


Let's get going.

I gotta be somewhere

in an hour.

So, go.

You're going with me.

Guess again.

To be called up by

Search and Rescue later, ok?

I got other things to do.

Do you live around here?

Do you live around here, Wolf?

The harder time you're going

to have climbing.

And next time,

bring some water

and a friend with you.

- It's safer that way.

- I don't have any friends here.

Well, maybe you should

make some.

So, uh...

So, what's your name?

You can call me...



Is that a first or a last?


And over here are duplicates

of the first atomic bombs,

"Fat Man" and "Little Boy".

They were detonated over Japan,

in August, 1945.

Now, these are the only two

atomic weapons

ever used in warfare.

They represent

one of the greatest

scientific achievements

of all time.

And both bombs were designed,

fabricated, and assembled

right here in Los Alamos.

They killed a lot of people,



And in the next room...

How many people did they kill?

It was something like 220,000.

Okay, thank you.

Sarah's dad got blown up

in a war

and now he has a metal brain.

Uh, does anyone have

any questions?

Does Uncle Walter make bombs?

Uncle Walter is involved

in Research and Design

for National Security.
