But because there is a shortage of detection machines and bomb sniffing dogs --airlines do have the option of just making sure that no bag is loaded onto the plane without is owner on board.

The Palm Beach International Airport has gone one step further in its security efforts. It's using cameras to scan people's faces. The new system, called "Face It" is designed to single out criminals and terrorists in a crowd. The camera compares facial features to those in a database and alerts security if it makes a match.

You might be shocked to learn you don't have to travel to the Science Museum of Virginia in Richmond to learn about electricity. The agency's first and only satellite center is near downtown Danville at the historic "Crossing of the Dan". From physics to biology to optical illusions, interactive displays explain the laws that make the earth go 'round.

And don't be surprised if a train rattles by just a few feet away. Since 1899 the building's served as an Amtrak station although now, passengers board only during the wee hours of the night. But even those who stay put can take a journey... into the fascinating realm of science. Shannon Young, News 7, Danville.))
