Model 47 Trinity diorama
Full description of the Model 47

The Model 47 is a measurable analog
of the Trinity Site and surrounding area,
as it appeared 6 July 1945.
As is well known, the land tells many stories;
but in this case only two can be found
embedded in the landscape-analog,
using the attached probe.

The official history of this site
was intentionally obscured,
and the physical terrain has changed,
since the configuration mapped here was a temporary one --
the results of the 'test' having been obtained,
everyone went home
(except rancher McDonald, ousted for the purpose),
with one small mess being left in the military desert.

'The map is not the territory'
situationists like to say
but sometimes that's all you've got.
