Russia mourns scientists killed in missile test

According to reports, a failed missile test that ended in an explosion killing five scientists last week on Russia’s White Sea involved a small nuclear reactor. The blast occurred August 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. The Russian Defense Ministry has not mentioned the nuclear element.

He should mourn the people who will suffer hundreds of years of effects and the White Sea and wherever its currents go now becoming far less exploitable. Test your missiles outside of Russia if you have any care whatsoever for the lands you govern you bumbling stupid fool, especially when you know they are loaded with the nastiest of shit possible! The hell are even the benefits of a nuclear engine on missiles? If it's space, fuck off to space with your dogshit testing then.
