Over 30 years ago, Ed Grothus quit his job making "better" atomic bombs as a Los Alamos National Laboratory machinist.

He began collecting what he calls "nuclear waste", non-radioactive high-tech discards from the Los Alamos National Laboratory which are auctioned off cheap every month in a gigantic government yard sale.

As the self-appointed curator of an unofficial museum of the nuclear age called "The Black Hole", Ed reveals a history of government waste that was literally thrown in a trash heap.

By transforming his ironic junkyard into a genuine museum, Ed hopes to preserve the artifacts of Los Alamos' hidden history at the same time as being an activist protesting against the use of the weapons he used to help make.
