Short-term spike in radiation in city registered after rocket engine explosion - TASS


MOSCOW (Reuters) – A short-term spike in radiation levels in Severodvinsk was recorded after an explosion on a rocket engine at a military testing site on Thursday, TASS news agency cited a spokeswoman for authorities in the northern city as saying.

The Defence Ministry said earlier on Thursday that radiation levels were normal after an explosion involving a liquid-propellant rocket engine killed two people and injured six.


Russian military says 2 dead, 4 injured by rocket explosion


MOSCOW — Russia's Defense Ministry said two people died and four others were wounded when a rocket engine exploded during a test.

The ministry said the explosion occurred at a military shooting range in the northwestern Arkhangelsk region, causing a fire. It said a total of six servicemen and civilian engineers were injured, and two of them later died of injuries.

The ministry said there was no release of radioactivity or any toxic substances.



Gosh, slightly worrying especially as an earlier statement insisted there was no radiation and then shortly later a contradicting statement admitting there was a "short-term spike in radiation".

This explosion comes after an earlier explosion in Siberia.

Dodgy stuff...

Yes - two incidents:

www.bbc.co.uk...


But Russia has said radiation levels are normal:



During testing of a liquid jet engine an explosion and combustion of the product occurred," a statement by the defence ministry carried by Russian news agency Interfax said. "There have been no harmful chemicals released into the atmosphere, the radiation levels are normal," it added.


Very fishy.

Of course there's normal normal and then there's Russian normal.

Then there's "Normal - for Norfolk".

So, a couple of points here...

1. The Russians are notorious for lying / providing mis-information about all things nuclear.

2. Probably more importantly, Severodvinsk is an area where there are a number of aging nuclear submarines which are being decommissioned. The radioactivity is likely related to this, not a rocket.

Odd that it was a short term spike following this explosion though. Odd too that TASS reported the spike.

Not to mention the initial denial and then the revised statement.

3.6 Roentgen. Not great, not terrible.

Not really. If you read on this area, and some of the accidents they've had over the years it's not too surprising.

They began decommissioning subs there back in the 60's, and some of the methods they used were pretty shaky and dangerous, especially storage methods. This area is an area that Russia would just soon the world forgot about because of this.

You have to remember, breaking down a nuclear sub is one thing, but what you do with the material after you break it down is a whole other thing. Some of the facilities they used early on to break down the nuclear reactors and store the parts are now so contaminated they can't even figure out how to remediate some of the stuff. And the storage pools for the fuel rods often fall into disrepair and the cooling fails causing the water to boil off which causes fires and explosions. Radiation levels can spike while they scramble to get water and cooling back to the storage pools. This area has been a nuclear catastrophe just waiting to happen for decades. It's getting better, but it's a slow process (very).

Where did you get that number?
3.6 is the equivalent of several hundred chest xrays.
You would be hard pressed to find that kind of level anywhere but close to nuclear fuel.

I see. Looks like you are more knowledgeable about these things than me so thank you for your explanation.

It is a quote from the recent Chernobyl TV series.

I wonder if the USAF will send Constant Phoenix WC-135 up off the coast?

But that's as high as the dial goes....lol

Could be 100..

I saw this VIDEO yesterday on LiveLeak. I wonder if The New World Orders ANTIFA has entered into Russia. I cant look into it right now but here's a video and link


0 Catastrophic Explosion at Russian Ammo Dump Again? A massive explosion has occurred in Siberia, reportedly near the town Achinsk. The cause of the explosion is not yet known, though it reportedly took place at an artillery storage base. Thousands of people have been evacuated to “be relocated from a 20km radius around the site,” according to the Financial Times.

Is this what happens when you tear up nuclear treaties.
