Radiation at Singapore Changi Airport

Radiation at Singapore Changi Airport

During our short stay in Singapore we did a lot of sight seeing but there was no time to attend to our Gamma Scout. However, during our flight from Thailand to Norway, we got a second chance to make up.

While waiting for our connecting flight to Oslo, we had enough time to check on radiation at Singapore Airport.

11th August 2012. Singapore Changi Airport. Background radiation is below average at the check-in counter. Probably because the counter is sort of in the way, blocking the Geiger tube.

The other display on the violet check-in counter gives ‘kg’ instead of ‘micro sievert’. 22.3 kg is my bag.

We carry two big bags, each weighing around 20-25 kg. Perpetual travel requires judicious preparation and skillful packing. We have got one bag for my shoes and one is full of neatly folded dollar bills. That’s all we need really.

Still 11th August 2012. Radiation is doing fine at Changi Airport and we are off to (measure radiation at) London Heathrow, before finally arriving in Oslo.

You are probably wondering why the hell we are doing this and how to read those numbers on the Geiger. Lucky you, all is conveniently summarized right here.
