OT - K-9 Explosives Detection Unit

I was looking at the Alumni magazine of one of the colleges I attended and learned that they are the only college in Massachusetts with their very own K-9 Explosives Detection Unit.

No wonder the tuition is now $80,000/year.



It would explain why ALL the students want to get around campus on a Hoverboard…

I toured University of Florida a few weeks ago (for the third time), but this was an in-depth tour and while walking through one building, the guide mentioned that they have their very own nuclear reactor in that building!

Yep. My alma matter had their very own nuclear reactor, too. But it didn’t have enough plutonium to create an explosion.

There was (still is? Don’t know) a small reactor at the U of MN in the Twin Cities. I saw it back in the late 1960s, and it was not new then. It was for the physics dept, I guess. Just looked online and it appears it was removed. No idea when.

Built in 1938, torn down in 2016.

A Van de Graaff would be an accelerator, rather than a reactor.
