Radioactive polls have beefed up some security measures around the 125 marathons.
This morning a Department of Energy helicopter flew over the cities and eastern suburbs of Massachusetts, surveying radiation ahead of the 125th Boston Marathon. The flight is part of security preparations to identify first aid donors with potential "dirty bombs" and other terrorist activities before their death.
Background radiation is very important in this situation because the Earth constantly emits different levels of radiation. Some types of rock emit more than others, and when they are close to or above the ground, they can cause spikes that cause early and distracting detectors. For example, the National World War II Memorial in Washington is made of large amounts of granite and emits enough radiation to be specifically mentioned in the radiation survey report at the 2009 presidential inauguration.Advertising Zoom/Map prepared by NNSA for the 2009 presidential inauguration. Note the 'point of aim' pattern on the memorial for World War II. US Department of Energy A fully loaded helicopter can fly for two and a half hours to need refueling. The helicopter can also fly using helium 3 sensors used to detect neutron radiation.
The entire AMS fleet consists of two Bell 412 helicopters and three Beechcraft BN-350 Andrews has a joint base in Maryland and Nellis Air Energy Base in Nevada Boston Marathon Three people were killed and more than 250 injured when two homegrown terrorists detonated homemade pressure bombs at the finish line in 2013 The operation led to a days-long manhunt that culminated in shootings near Watertown.While the AMS investigations It may not be able to identify the types of explosives used in the 2013 bombing, as it is part of a larger effort to secure the event. The Commonwealth has designated the route as a "drone-free zone" and police are deployed throughout the race. Checkpoints are dotted in crowded areas where officers can check bags and air conditioners for weapons or explosives. I crossed the finish line less than an hour before the 2013 bombing and converged on the following days of quarantine. I still run races to encourage runners, and every year I am happy to see federal and state law enforcement prepare for a wide range of potential accidents, no matter how far-fetched.
