(US Department of Energy)   Those low-flying helicopters hovering over DC? Just the National Nuclear Security Administration doing a routine check of background radiation levels. Routine. Nothing to worry about. All is well   (nnsa.energy.gov) divider line 42

There's a secret missile silo under the Eisenhower putting green?

No missing radioactive monkeys to be seen here citizen.

If you think all they're doing is a radiation survey, I've got some yellow cake HEU that's stored in Iran to sell you.

I actually prefer that they do these kinds of checks over major US cities.
 
2013-01-04 10:23:39 AM  
It probably provides a baseline so they know if any new radiological hot spots show up.
 
2013-01-04 10:23:53 AM  
I thought maybe someone had lost a contact, and they were helping to look.

It's just a training exercise....

It's just swamp gas from a weather balloon that was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Welcome to the new age, to the new age.

Meh. They need a baseline in the extremely unlikely scenario of a dirty-bomb attack, so they can figure out where the worst contamination is. Another make-work project of the military-security complex, keeping DC safe from gorillas and polar bears at vast expense since 2001.

Oh, and the low-flying helicopters are mainly traffic, cop and presidential transport. They're everywhere, all the time.

I am (unfortunately) in Upper Marlboro today, and it appears that we are being surveyed right now.

Not sure if I'm hoping they find the Tesseract or the Hulk, tho.

It's simple. They've developed invisible chem-trails and applying them at close range for a strengthened effect.

Might be amusing for anyone who has just had a radio-technitium stress test. For two days, you emit detectable quantities of gamma rays.

Technetium.

helicopters flying low over the DC area has been going on almost daily, usually just after dark, since last summer at least.  When I am walking my dog or playing softball or tennis and they are directly above me i look right up at them and give them the finger.

farking leave us alone.  its sketchy as hell.  sometimes they shine their spotlight right on us.

I work in a Virginia office building that sits on the banks of the Potomac. The constant helicopter and plane traffic over the river makes it look like an airborne I-95.

I live about a block and a half from the expressway. The farking traffic copters hovering overhead at 4am makes me wish I had some shoulder launched stingers.

You should get one of those quadcopter drones and hang a sign on it reading "Go the fark away, I'm trying to sleep". Send it up to hover in front of the helicopter's windscreen.

/actually you shouldn't, as I'm sure all kinds of federal agencies would jump on your ass for it

Seems to be working though.

mbillips: figure


Actually they have been doing these surveys for over 20 years, and it's the same people that do aerial surveys and monitoring for radioactive spills or accidents (like what happened at Fukushima), and do monitoring for NASA. In fact, it is exactly the same people (NNSA contractor) who did surveys for the Japanese who did not have the capability in place. But I guess polar bears come in all shapes and sizes.

ex-Navy nuke here. We were doing "safe and effective" long before these pogues came along.
