I saw a programme on the telly yesterday about Porton Down Military Research Establishment [100th Anniversary], which gave unpresidented access to the public gaze.

It was the place back in the early 1950s that cooked up agent VX, a nerve agent around 130 times more toxic than sarin, and that may only be made in amounts of around 4ml for experimental purposes. They are the only place in the UK licenced to handle and dispose of old chemical and nerve weapons.

They are heavy into research and development of means of preventing and combatting the likes of 'natural' plagues and military and terrorist attacks. As is the nature of such a 'beast', much that was/is controversial has taken place, even the likes of a political and military cover up of a human 'volunteer' who died after an experiment on him using a small trace of sarin. All the other 'volunteers' recovered.
