  1. Their nuclear propelled missile exploded, and immediately all Russian radioactivity monitors went offline.

    There is a radioactive cloud over Russia now. And they are ignoring it, just like in the bag old days.

  2. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](http://www.reuters.com/article/us-russia-blast-norway/norway-detects-radioactive-iodine-by-russian-border-days-after-blast-idUSKCN1V510N) reduced by 63%. (I’m a bot)

    > OSLO – Norway's nuclear safety authority is analyzing tiny amounts of radioactive iodine detected in the air in northern Norway in the days after a deadly explosion during a rocket engine test over the border in Russia.

    > Norway's radiation and nuclear safety authority DSA said it had detected the radioactive iodine at its air filter station in Svanhovd, which is by the Russian border.

    > Such radiation measurements are not unusual in Norway, as its monitoring stations detect radioactive iodine about six to eight times a year and the source is usually unknown.

  3. Russia cannot be trusted to have a nuclear program.

    You’ve fucked up too many times, in spectacular fashion. You’ve shown yourself incapable of harnessing such a technology.

  4. in a few month russia is opening a nuclear power plant in Astravec, Belorussia. Only 50 km from the capital of Lithuania. It is gonna be a real blast. everyone in my job has a potassium iodide tablets, just in case.

  5. Russia’s state nuclear agency, Rosatom, said on Saturday that five people killed in the blast were its staff members, and the accident involved “isotope power sources”, giving no further details.

  6. I really don’t think they could contain a *major* radiation leak. There is just too much information freely flowing and NATO allies will be monitoring it closely for the safety of their own civilians. I am curious as to how bad it is though.
