From the Manhattan Project's top-secret laboratories to the elaborate mannequin "Doom Towns" of the Nevada Desert, Vegas PBS' "The Test" follows the development of the atomic bomb during the mid-1900s, when political stakes were high but understanding of nuclear capabilities and consequences were low. Join us as we go behind the scenes to visit those small communities that were affected by nuclear fallout, and reveal the turbulent struggles of Nevada's Atomic back yard.
