This is really cool

New techniques can now detect chemical signatures more sensitively and with more discrimination than a dog's nose.

Note to gun enthusiasts: This may also go positive if you have fired a weapon recently.

Yeah, not too long ago a buddy of mine who is in law enforcement was surprised the TSA didn't pull his luggage out of the line on a flight home from training in Nevada. They had been detonating explosives all weekend. Makes you wonder about the sensitivity of the screening equipment.
