NASA: Beautiful blood moon, when lunar eclipse comes Tuesday
Get ready for a total lunar eclipse on Tuesday that will turn the moon a luscious reddish orange. There will be four such "blood moons" within a year's time.

My family meet up here, a few of them had been before. According to them the quality of the exhibits went down. Having not been here before there was little I would have enjoyed had it not been for my family. The staff was wonderful however. Many exhibits I went to didn't function properly, ranging from simple quizzes to a robotic hand. There presentation was solid. If your in Oakridge I'd recommend it for some fun, don't come for it though.

There are very few places in East Tennessee where one can be educated and entertained at the same time. This is one of those places.

Not worth the trip off the interstate to this unfriendly town.

Good for a few hours of fun and learning. There is lots of information about the founding of Oak Ridge and the Manhattan project, but my favorite was the collection of puzzles on the round tables in the lobby.

I was very interested in the parts on the history of the land and the facilities, but there were several exhibits that as of January 2010 were very out of date. One was about the Cassini probe, and was written as it not having been launched yet. The probe had launched 12 years before my visit and achieved orbit around Saturn for about 5 years. There was another exhibit about nuclear waste disposal and the Yucca Mountain facility to be in operation by 2010, but which apparently is no longer considered a possible site. There were also some exhibits with broken buttons, lights, etc. The docent was very knowledgeable however.
