Like they are going to announce that their nuclear powered missile test was actually weather balloon.

There's likely to be trouble, however, when the fallout hits the anus.

Never believe it until the Kremlin denies it.

Like they are going like and subscribe to your nuclear weapon test.

Looks like they're Putin this on someone else.

Like they're going to announce that their success is nuclear-powered...

All the power stations are working as usual. The nuclear powered cruise missile just does that. Nothing to see here.

Did you hear Noway put bar codes on all their naval vessels?
So when the ships come back to port, they can Scandinavian.

Don't ask me, I have a vasectomy. My little guys are not swimming around inside me then returning to their hives. My sperm has been living in quarantine for years.

I wonder why it tapers down and gets pointy off the coast of England? If this was a volcano cloud instead of a radiation cloud then I would guess the volcano was off of Englands East coast

I guess more like Scotland but Britain's East coast anyhow.

I bet no one expected Kaiju to emerge from the Baltic Sea

The scary thing is, they could be telling the truth.  All of their plants could be functioning fine, and none of the rods in use have suffered any damage.

The isotopes detected suggest a damaged fuel rod... so what if that is the case...  an old fuel rod, sitting in an abandonned depot that is no longer being maintained and has no records, has burst?  That is of course assuming that the rod was disposed of correctly in the first place, and not just dumped in an old gravel pit lake to save money.

The coolant is highly contaminated and radiation is moving forward!

If you looked at the wind patterns it has been swept back from an area over the white sea - that's the place where they lost their other nuclear powered missile.

"The possible source region in the 72h preceding detection is shown in orange on the map."

That image doesn't show the cloud, it shows where it could have come from. The cloud itself is probably shaped very differently form this.

The cloud realised it was approaching Newcastle and it trying to back away

The half lives of the detected isotopes are short (Ru-103 ~ 30 days). The only way for them to be detected in the environment is if a *running* atomic reactor exploded.

Fuel rods are kept in underwater ("wet") storage for several years before they're moved to dry storage.

Abandoned... aka, allowed to boil dry. :)

But yes, chances are slim.

I literally just started watching Chernobyl, two episodes in, so I'm getting a kick...

...and iodine pills.

The decommissioned SSNs and SSBNs in Murmansk have been dismantled and their cores sent off for special storage etc.

But how about one of their active nuke boats?  And strangely enough, they're stationed right about where that cloud originates.
