Deadly X-Ray Weapon

This week, the newspaper The New York Times reported about a curious incident that occurred to an American. The New Yorker planned to build a ray gun to kill the enemies of Israel.

Glendon Scott Crawford, a member of the radical of the Ku Klux Klan, and his co-defendant engineer Eric Fitt were arrested by FBI agents on Tuesday, June 18. Both are accused of creating an X-lethal weapons, the newspaper said.

In April 2012, the synagogue in Albany (NY), a man came and publicly announced its intention to make a weapon that will help get rid of the enemies of Israel. Crawford, a mechanic in the company of General Electric, was looking for willing to provide financial support. According to the police, he found the money, but from a different source: Crawford finance crazy idea by a leader of the Ku Klux Klan in North Carolina.

Is it possible to turn the X-ray machine into a weapon of mass destruction?

As is well known, X-rays used to photograph the internal organs. The usual dose of X-ray radiation used medical devices, is harmless to humans, but increased exposure to X-rays can cause damage to the body.

As the ultraviolet radiation coming from the sun, the high dose of X-rays can cause the formation of malignant tumors. The diagnosis of cancer for many may sound like a death sentence.


Standard radiation absorbed dose x-rays, for example, the chest is 1 rad. The absorbed dose of 5-20 rad as a result of intense ionizing radiation can cause damage to chromosomes. The defeat provoked a dose of 20-100 rad leukopenia – a temporary reduction in the number of white blood cells in the blood. The disease leads to a weakened immunity. Absorbed dose of 200 rad associated with the early stages of radiation sickness. Short-term exposure to a dose of 800 or more is almost always happy to have a fatal outcome. Crawford was planning to create a weapon that can generate lethal doses of ionizing radiation. Death in this case could occur within a few hours. An attacker urged to attack enemies at night when they are in a state of sleep.
Why the military does not use x-gun?

Before answering this question, we have to admit that the idea of ​​the X-ray of weapons of mass destruction is crazy. Not the fact that the X-ray generator Crawford confiscated during the raid, he was a worker.

However maintain their own military development of directed energy beam weapons. The experimental non-lethal weapons are used by the Department of Sheriff of Los Angeles for the suppression of a prison riot. Low doses of radiation directed affect some parts of the skin, heating it, which makes the rebellious inmates to obey orders.

Of course, increasing the radiation power can get weapons to cause death. But whether it is the military, which have a more efficient, inexpensive and proven alternatives?
