What are some things invented in New Mexico?
Who knew New Mexico is a place with lots of ingenuity and genius behind it? Well, we did, and we’re excited to share this information with you! There were some pretty significant things invented in New Mexico, such as:
The atomic bomb. The Manhattan Project took place here, in the Land of Enchantment, and we’re not exactly sure if we’re proud of that one so much as afraid of it.
Another weapon of war, though a much more helpful one, was invented here as well: the Disrupter is a machine that shoots a “blade” of water at targets, and it was used to detonate roadside bombs by the US Army in Afghanistan with much success.
