A photo essay by Randy Montoya
Last year, we celebrated Sandia’s 70th birthday with pride, honoring the Labs’ response to seven decades of challenges. At the time, we had no idea of the dramatic world events that would be in store for us in year 71.
Throughout major world events like the Cuban Missile Crisis, the 9-11 attacks and the current COVID-19 pandemic, Sandians have continued to serve the nation, completing their mission-essential work wherever they need to be, from remote parts of the world to dusty test sites and isolated laboratories to the kitchen table at home.
This abridged photo essay provides a peek into Sandia’s response to this new threat: keeping each other safe as we move forward together and continue our mission.
