Title: Airport baggage scanning technology makes flying safer for Americans

Abstract

Each time you step on a commercial flight, you can feel safer because of a researcher you've probably never heard of. His name is Harry Martz. He's a veteran scientist at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) who wakes up every day thinking how his research can advance X-ray imaging technology to thwart the next terrorist attack. "My job is to improve national security" Martz said. "That's why my research team exists. We have to outsmart the terrorists. It's a constant battle."
