Sandia Labs Conducting Explosive Test Today
Sandia National Laboratories is planning an explosive test today and says some booms from it might be heard in parts of the Albuquerque area.
The test is slated for between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. at Sandia's Coyote test field on the south side of Kirtland Air Force Base.
Lab officials say some black smoke might be visible above the base for a short time after the test.
Sandia says the experiment is in support of the lab's national security missions.
