    News now reporting the radiation spike last week was a failed nuke test.

    Large area being evacuated.

    Looks bad.

    The search feature sucks anymore. Just locks up.

    But today they are reporting it was more than some rocket test. Massive fallout. Evaluation.

    Yeah...the title of the original thread didn't make any referance to the subject...and I'm very guilty of doing stuff like that. But looks like the Ruskies are tryiing out some stuff on the edge of science fiction. Sure glad the USA didn't try that when we put men on the moon. Could be a real game changer after they regroup from this little hicough.

    Well they have Chernobyl experience to draw from -- I thought above ground nuke-tests were taboo??

    It was a boo-boo with a new missile propulsion system...not a bomb.

    There hasn’t been any testing at all for the super powers for many decades.

    I would not be surprised to find out Putin tested a nuke, just to twist some tails, all the while maintaining plausible deniability. The guy hates it when Russia falls off the front page for more than a few weeks.

    It’s Trump’s fault.

    It appears to be a nuke-powered cruise or hypersonic missile.

    After a few yrs they will probably ask us to pay for the cleanup.

    If you ever get a chance to drive through east central Idaho, you can see the prototypes of HETR 1 and HETR 2 sitting on the roadside outside of Arco. When you see just how big these nuclear-powered jet testbeds are, it's no surprise it went nowhere. HH
