    EAmbulances covered in protective film transport six Russians who suffered severe radiation poisonin

    Ambulances covered in protective film transport Russians 'who suffered radiation poisoning' in blast | Daily Mail Online

    The part of the title that didn’t fit: o:
    in mystery explosion during 'test of new hypersonic missile'

    A: Why was this missile armed and apparently going to fly?
    B: Was it being fired?

    Today, reports surfaced in Russia claiming the spike in radiation may have been caused when one of Vladimir Putin's top secret Zircon hypersonic missiles exploded during tests.
    There are better Russia watchers than me on this board, but this sounds like:

    A: hypersonic missiles are deployed and armed.
    B: Putin hoaxed it to make it look that way.

    WTF?

    So much for hyper-sonic missiles! Hope they can contain what ever radiation has escaped!!

    Well we already know that Russia has a history of denying nuclear accidents.
    Apparently it is quite possibly a fact of human nature.
    I am forced to wonder if our own country would be 100% forthcoming if an accident like this happened here.
    But we know for sure that the Russian response is to tamp down concerns.

    The explosion allegedly took place at a Russian Navy proving ground near the village of Nenoksa which is located ~30 mi west of the city of Severodvinsk. The accident occurred on a barge or ship and killed 3 and injured 15.

    According to Greenpeace, radiation levels in Severodvinsk briefly reached 20 times normal levels before returning to normal. A good possibility is a test of the new Burevestnik nuclear-powered cruise missile.

    Russia has tested the Burevestnik at least 6 times now and all tests have failed. A turbo-jet engine is used at launch before it then switches to nuclear propulsion.

    This could be a launch failure on the test barge. DARPA scientists assess that a nuclear-powered cruise-missile is neither practical nor dependable.

    I'm thinking the world shouldn't let Russia play with anything radioactive anymore. They can't seem to handle it.

    GREAT! MORE radiation forever in every ocean in the world. That's what the earth and all of us need. For our oceans and seafood to have MORE radiation.

    This was the test setup on the day of the Nenoksa accident.

    The unidentified ships are possibly involved with test telemetry.

    A "Serebryanka" is a ship primarily designed to handle liquid nuclear waste. It is unclear why this asset is in place.

    Knowing what I know of weapon testing procedures, this is actually very easily explained.

    When conducting weapon tests beyond the "proof of concept" phase and starting into the "Operational Test" phase, it is common to use a dummy warhead of the same size and weight of the real deal.

    And when you are talking about a nuclear carrier, that generally means that the dummy warhead has a uranium core.

    And no, not the U-235 that is used in making of actual atomic bombs. But U-238, a still radioactive but non-fissile isotope. The weight and mass difference between the two is fractional, so all testing with the U-238 equipped warhead is just as valid as if an actual live U-235 warhead was in place.

    So this is likely what has been observed. a conventional explosion, where part of the debris was radioactive U-238.
    War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. - John Stuart Mill
