Common sense isn't.
Although the general area was previously open to public access, it is clear that the visitor overlook has been neglected for at least a couple years or more. I last personally visited it in 1995, at which time the facility was in good shape, and the video equipment was still operating. This is clearly no longer the case, and has not been for quite some time.
They used to show a slide show on this screen, and there used to
be benches to sit on while watching.
The projection booth has been boarded over.
If I remember correctly, it was previously unattended, and one
would push a button to start the show.
At right is the overlook view towards the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility (HRIBF brief description).
The sign is no longer there.
Below is a panoramic view.
Scroll right if needed to see complete panoramic image.

|Quote of the moment|
|We have here a human as well as an economic problem. When humane considerations are concerned, Americans give them precedence. The lessons of history, confirmed by the evidence immediately before me, show conclusively that continued dependence upon relief induces a spiritual and moral disintegration fundamentally destructive to the national fibre. To dole out relief in this way is to administer a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit.|
|~ President FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT, annual message to the Congress, January 4, 1935.The Public Papers and Addresses of Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1935, p. 19 (1938). ~|
