 The Department of Homeland Security is releasing dead bacteria into Boston’s Subway System to test its new bio-terror sensing detector, the Business Insider reports.

Scientists will release Bacillus subtilis, a non-toxic bacterium found in soil, water, air and decomposing plant matter, as part of a simulated biological weapon attack.

It can’t cause disease, according to the Business Insider.

The idea is to monitor the spread of the bacteria for the next six months, according to the Business Insider.
