We’ve been telling you in our top of the hour newscasts today about the Perseid Meteor Showers, which are currently at their peak.  Didier Saumon, a Los Alamos National Laboratory astrophysicist, says the sky show is actually pieces of Comet Swift-Tuttle hitting Earth's atmosphere at more than 133-thousand miles an hour mph and burning up.  Saumon adds that tonight’s lack of moonlight will help people see the Perseids, which keep a regular schedule of sorts.

It is a well-established fact that radioactive fallout from nuclear testing can cause cancers and other deadly diseases, and Congress has established compensation programs for "downwinders" affected by tests in  Nevada and the Marshall Islands.  But the New Mexicans who lived downwind of the world's first above-ground nuclear test at the Trinity site, between Socorro and Alamogordo, have been left out, given neither recognition nor compensation, despite ample evidence of dire health effects.  Santa Fe investigative reporter Dennis Carroll told KSFR'S Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE about some of the downwinders he's interviewed, including a woman who was attending a dance camp near Ruidoso when the bomb went off.
