Why Is This Cargo Container Emitting So Much Radiation?

October 22, 2011 — 2 Comments

Mystery BoxThe November 2011 edition of Wired.com (magazine) features an interesting read on the question of ‘suspect containers’. Perhaps this sheds some credible light on the dangers of unregulated handling of radioactive materials; and no less the potential hazards faced by cargo handlers and port authorities in the course of their duties. The billions of dollars spent by governments every year  in maintaining national security across multimodal transport modalities and ports of entry are often questioned; nonetheless, it is stories such as this case in the Port of Genoa, Italy, that lend credence to the need for non-intrusive inspection and detection equipment.
