New Device Protects U.S. From Nuclear Attack

A new device could play a big part in protecting the United States from a nuclear attack. It was developed right here at home. A research team at the University of Nebraska Lincoln came up with the device which is used to detect neutrons, radioactive materials, that should not be found in our environment. It is a hand-held device that will signal when neutrons are found. Which some say will be a good tool for security officers to have, especially in our airports.
