Left of Bang



The weapons and tools lab was particularly neat.  Great mixture between applied science, getting to shoot guns for testing, and solving puzzles.


Rockets, bombs, bullets, science.  C’mon.  This isn’t even a real job.


If you get shot in the chest by an AK-47, don’t keep the bullet for a souvenir after you get off your backside and pick the bullet out of your plate.  Give it to these guys and maybe they can match it to a weapon, and maybe they can match that weapon to a fingerprint.

The processes involved in this important weapons and tools lab were complex, and as with the other labs, you’ve got to be a smart cat to be any good at this work.


Weapons leave their own “fingerprints” on bullets and casings.


DNA lab.  This is where you get neck deep in mitochondria.  We couldn’t go into the lab because they wanted to keep contamination down.

An NDS boss asks the (female) DNA expert if it were possible to match if, say, ten men raped a woman.  Would this lab be able to figure out who did it?  She said it would be difficult but possible.  I got the idea that he had a case in mind and wanted to crack some heads.  The NDS does not play.


Staying left of bang is serious business for serious people.  This is one of those unsung corners of the war that delivers big bang for the buck.
