Cleaning up things at work this morning and I found this magaine:
That’s the January/February 2005 issue of American Scientist, and I thought I’d share the cover with you, which I found very interesting. Here’s what it says inside about that image:
Using an electronic metal detector, a technician attempts to find land mines placed near the thousand-year-old Banteay Srei temple in Cambodia. Ground-penetrating radar and mine-sniffing dogs are also frequently employed for such dangerous work, but some mine-removal experts may benefit from equipment based on nuclear quadrupole resonance - a phenomenon that is similar to nuclear magnetic resonance, which forms the basis of MRI imaging.
