Ontploffing op Russische raket-testsite

August 8, 2019 - In het noorden van de Russische stad Severodvinsken werd een korte
piek in stralingsniveaus waargenomen nadat een raketmotor explodeerde
op een militaire test-site nabij het dorp Nyonoksa

A liquid-propellant rocket engine exploded killing two people on Thursday in Russia’s northern Arkhangelsk region.

“A short-term rise in background radiation was recorded at 12 o’clock in Severodvinsk,” Ksenia Yudina, a spokeswoman for the city authorities, was quoted as saying.

City officials said background radiation levels had fully “normalized.” The population of Severodvinsk was 185,000 at the beginning of 2017, according to officials.
