Airport security has limited the amount of liquids passengers can carry on planes since the attacks on September 2001. Starting next year in the European Union and in Australia, rules will be relaxed thanks in part to a new liquid screening device developed by Battelle and Sellex International. The system can quickly test whether liquids are dangerous.
