The Black Hole of Los Alamos.

Ed Grothus is a former Los Alamos National Lab employee. Now, he tinkers around his shop "The Black Hole," a marvelous scientific junk store with a huge collection of used scientific equipments, electronics, lab supplies, military surplus and "nuclear by-products" (I don't know what he means by that). It's called the Black Hole because "everything goes in and nothing comes out."

Its a great place if you're into techno junk. You can spend several hours looking at stuff, trying to figure out what it is or how you could use it.

I've actually been to this place when I lived in Los Alamos, although it was just a plain old grocery store at the time. After the store closed, I had just assumed that the place was being used to store junk until I saw an article about the place being visited by the local Hazmat team. Needless to say, most of the locals kept their distance.
