Motor de foguete russo explode em teste

August 8, 2019 - Foi registado um pico de radiação de curto prazo na cidade de
Severodvinsk no norte da Rússia após a explosão de um motor de
foguete num polígono de ensaios militar perto da aldeia de 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.
