Full Title: President Putin says five men killed in huge explosion in northern Russia that caused sudden radiation spike died trying to create a weapon that has no equal in the world
Russian President Vladimir Putin has told widows of the five scientists who died in a nuclear explosion earlier this year that their husbands were working on 'the most advanced and unmatched technical' weaponry.
Putin's comments came during a ceremony of state decorations at the Kremlin today where he awarded the deceased employees of Russia's state nuclear company with the Order of Courage, posthumously.

“a weapon that has no equal in the world”
Swalwell’s explosive gas issue.
I wonder if it was a repeat of a “demon core”-type incident?
Basically, scientists mishandling the core of a nuclear weapon.
Video at the source shows what appears to be the equivalent of Russian Hell’s Angels carrying some of the coffins. What does this tell us? Russia’s top nuclear scientists and engineers have friends and relatives who are H.A.s? Suddenly I’m less concerned about whatever the heck it is they’re supposed to be doing.
The widows received their husbands’ remains in lead thimbles.
The original route was supposed to go through the Baltic Sea, then north to the Arctic. It was supposed to arrive in early September. They had originally planned to load the nuclear fuel while it was still docked at St. Petersburg where it was built, but Greenpeace in Russia, who called it "Chernobyl on Ice filed a petition with thousands of signatures against that plan, and so the plan was changed and the fuel was not supposed to be put into the plant until it docked at its destiny. According to one article, they were going to turn it on this fall, but I haven't been able to locate anything that says that has occurred yet. It's supposed to be replacing two permanent plants that are being shut down.
Yeah! Its like having a little space heater everywhere you go. Those Russian leaders are the best. Ask the Red Army soldiers that threw the fuel chunks back it the reactor building a Chernobyl. Ah, belay my last, I cant find any of them alive. My bad.
There’s five dead scientists that won’t be creating anything anymore. Might want to keep them out of the blast zone next time.
Gosh, they were probably at least a mile away.
And one of them was the president of that Ukrainian gas company.
Hush-a-boom. At last, a silent explosive.
Some people did something . . . wrong.
For over 70 years, Russia has been claiming to have created doomsday weapons to destroy the whole world. I guess it’s a cultural thing.
Might be a new kind of non-bomb-pumped X-Ray laser (these already exist in various forms). At the end of the Cold War, it was discovered that the Soviets had actually been further along in laser research and military applications thereof than the West had been.
X-Ray lasers are kind of scary. Ravening death beam at more than one light-minute distance.
Actually, it appears they were working on nuclear propulsion for spacecraft. It could actually be a soft X-ray projector as those can be used for spacecraft propulsion.
Or are these men honoring a deceased US military serviceman also Hell's Angels and therefore the deceased's accomplishments should be ignored?
They proved the new weapon is lethal.
Probably white water. I wonder if its development corporation?
It was a video. Anti-muslim to be exact.
This is what they’re trying to develop.
There’s a photo of the engine that was fired successfully. Have fun. Enjoy the slide.
