November 7: Science on Tap

"Science on Tap," a series of informal talks on a wide range of topics in science and technology, will continue on Thursday, November 7, 5:30 pm, at O'Niell's, 4310 Central Ave. Southeast in Albuquerque

Project AZORIAN

Imagine standing atop the Empire State Building with an 8-foot-wide grappling hook on a 1-inch-diameter steel rope. Your task is to lower the hook to the street below, snag a compact car full of gold, and lift the car back to the top of the building. On top of that, the job has to be done without anyone noticing. That, essentially, describes what the CIA did in Project AZORIAN, a highly secret six-year effort to retrieve a sunken Soviet submarine from the Pacific Ocean floor during the Cold War.

The talks are co-sponsored by the University of New Mexico, Explora! and the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History. Admission is free, and you must be 21 years to attend. For more information, please call 505-245-2137, extension 103.
