Interactive map of the U.S. Nuclear Weapons Complex

Last week the staff at the Union of Concerned Scientists released an impressive interactive KML that shows facilities around the United states that are involved in the production and maintenance of nuclear weapons.
The map shows off dozens of sites across the country, including the lab in Los Alamos seen below:

When you zoom in closer, the information becomes more detailed:

There is an amazing amount of information in this file, all of which was pulled from public sources. You can view it for yourself by downloading this KML file, or you can read more about it on this page on the UCS website.
