New Airport Scanner Can Detect Liquid Explosives

It will be a couple of years before airports around the country have them, but Homeland Security officials are showing off some new technology.

At the Albuquerque International Airport, a new scanner was introduced that can detect wether a passenger is carrying liquid explosives.

The device is about the size of a small refrigerator and can measure chemical fingerprints in liquids.

It can even tell the difference between red and white wine and different types of soda.
