Scientific advances are being made in laboratories across the country that stagger the imagination. An instrument has recently been perfected, that will measure time to the hundredth million of a second. Another instrument will reveals the exact chemical properties in a fragment of material smaller than the tip of a needle. Those advancements and others like them, are important to every person in the country, because science is now a direct contributor to the fight against crime. The FBI laboratory in Washington DC is the largest crime lab in the world, used by special agents and local police in every part of the country, and is integral in solving cases that only a few short years ago would have remained mysteries. The case chosen for dramatization today is proof of that statement.
