The Plan to Allow Liquids on Planes Again

The Plan to Allow Liquids on Planes Again

New Technology Promises the Return of On-Board Liquids, But Not Anytime Soon

Remember those days when you could bring a bottle of water or cup of coffee through airport security and onto your flight?
Unfortunately, those days are long gone for many fliers, after fears that terrorists would try and use explosive liquids to take down a plane.
But some time in the not-so-distance future passengers might be able to bring liquids on planes once again.
Currently, government security screeners have no technology to accurately tell the difference between soda pop and an explosive liquid. However, a team of scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico is working on the next generation of scanners that promise to be able to differentiate between a bottle of red wine and white wine.
