As of today, it is believed that the death toll has risen to seven. The victims were described as suffering from burns, and most were thrown into the sea by the explosion; they all likely suffered from radiation burns.
A liquid rocket engine exploded, but radiation burns? Logic, where are you?

"highly likely" again

It is a nuclear engine. Uses liquid to move the heat from the core to the application I guess. I think I read it was liquid mercury.

Liquid metal fast reactor. Used where size and weight must be minimized. Higher heat transfer density of liquid metal

Exactly what other countries have peer rated militaries?

Which have blue water Navys? Which have a military airlift? Which can move a Division sized force to another continent?
Which other countries can project military force against a well defended nation?

The United States would have real trouble defeating China or Russia if we were fighting them at home. But we would have no trouble at all kicking their ass in North America, or fighting them in a third party location.

The word is Logistics.

Yeah a military like ours which kicked out all the patriotic vets and replaced them trans gender confused power point idiots. Yep....

Wouldn't need much to take us out. You eliminate the power grid and step back . 90 days and people will beg for help.

I see you meant “peer” and not ”pier”.

Still...peer to peer isn’t happening either. First, they have to get here, or wherever, and we can do that far better than they can. Second, there’s too much money and influence to be won in proxy fights.

And you are wrong, the nuclear option is alive and well. Satellites and comms aren’t as vulnerable as you think, and the boomers are set up for their loss anyway.

Any nuclear reactor is "liquid"
But in this case, it is a liquid rocket engine.

Yeah. That's why all major players develop satellite killers.

Ah yes. I would trust the precise wording of the press release on their secret military missile accident.

https://time.com/5649826/russia-nuclear-accident/

"The failed missile test that ended in an explosion killing five scientists last week on Russia’s White Sea involved a small nuclear reactor, according to a top official at the institute where they worked.

The institute is working on small-scale power sources that use “radioactive materials, including fissile and radioisotope materials” for the Defense Ministry and civilian uses, Vyacheslav Soloviev, scientific director of the institute, said in a video shown by local TV.

The men, who will be buried Monday, were national heroes and the “elite of the Russian Federal Nuclear Center,” institute Director Valentin Kostyukov said in the video, which was also posted on an official website in Sarov, a high-security city devoted to nuclear research less than 400 kilometers (250 miles) east of Moscow.

The blast occurred Aug. 8 during a test of a missile that used “isotope power sources” on an offshore platform in the Arkhangelsk region, close to the Arctic Circle, Russia’s state nuclear company Rosatom said over the weekend. The Defense Ministry initially reported two were killed in the accident, which it said involved testing of a liquid-fueled missile engine. The ministry didn’t mention the nuclear element."

The initial statement was changed to a small nuclear reactor explosion.
Bear in mind that a liquid fueled rocket would likely not have the range to cruise at low altitude to hit the US.


https://time.com/5652052/russia-nucl...ion-arms-race/

If it was a nuclear thermal reactor engine, it would heat a liquid propellant and eject it for the thrust. But that is very old technology. Not sure how this new one would work. But this article outlines the known possibilities.

In Russia, you no explode rocket. Rocket explode you.

BTW, no one remembers this unexplained incident from 1980. Something radioactive was in use in this instance, ya?

Maybe the Soviets have come up with something better? Kinda? Or not at all?

Someone said that the engine exploded from a rocket that was supposed to reach the United States?
It could be an engine from any tactical and strategic missile.

The report was that they thought it was the new nuclear powered cruise missile that Putin was extolling not too long ago. Low level high speed cruise missile that could fly around the world and hit a target. They showed it hitting the US while Putin was speaking.
https://www.vox.com/2019/8/13/208033...losion-skyfall

"That weapon, known as the Burevestnik in Russia or the SSC-X-9 Skyfall by NATO countries, would be the centerpiece of Moscow’s ability to threaten faraway targets like the US."

Russian Alfa submarine uses lead-bismuth in their primary reactor plant. They had to run external power to keep it molten in port. A couple slagged up.
It was the fastest and deepest diving boat in the world. But it was noisy and blind as a bat at speed.

Nope, been there done that... I could probably remember the real numbers not what Janes Fighting Ships put down.

Janes ran about 70% correct, and copies were in the control room so the OOD could pretend they knew what we were talking about.

And Jones (Red October) had nothing on me I was a TMA demon and fire control would use my solutions rather than the plotters...

So now 60-some doctors nurses and medical aids have been dragged into that mess

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ent-tests.html

First, it's nothing to be worried about. Then agents descend on the little village and force evacuations. Then this report.

But everything is just A OK, точно?
