Nice Story - to be honest, I used to have to fly with mine and it always went through the Scanner without much serious effect.

However, I remember once in the dim and distant past all of our nuclear source detection alarms went of in Aksai - we all panicked wondering what the hell had happened, as all the sources were stored in a secure bunker 1/2 a mile away (and we were 30km from the Lira nuclear site). After some time and several phone calls to Aberdeen/Houston (beam me up Scottie) we deduced (rightly or wrongly) that it was a severe solar storm which had set off the alarms - so I would suggest if you are nearer to the sun than me you may have a risk of a big dose (sic.) one day.
