The Wagon Wheel Project: Lecture: The Wagon Wheel Project: “The Big Bang That Didn't Happen"

with Ann Chambers Noble
Thursday, February 5th
12 Noon & 6:30 pm


In 1968, an area 10 miles south of Boulder and 9,220 feet underground was proposed to be exploded by five nuclear bombs to release natural gas trapped in layers of sandstone. It was estimated that the five bombs would create a blast 25 times greater than the explosion that destroyed Hiroshima. Citizens from Sublette County and surrounding areas formed a local committee to research the effects of the project on residents and to bring their concerns to area lawmakers and eventually the nation’s capitol.

Local historian and author Ann Chambers Noble will give a talk about the Wagon Wheel project and "The Big Bang That Didn't Happen" on Thursday, February 5th at 12 noon and again at 6:30 pm. Don’t miss the chance to learn details about this fascinating piece of local history and its grassroots success story.
