    Yes, i do think Russia can do this. But of course, meddling with nuclear things could go wrong. But I think they have control now

    It is kind of hard to let Chernobyl go. Heh. In Russia , the atoms have you.

    But I think things have advanced a little bit since then. Well , I hope so anyways.

    Russia Says New Weapon Blew Up in Nuclear Accident Last Week
    The failed missile test that ended in an explosion killing five atomic scientists last week on Russia’s White Sea involved a small nuclear power source, according to a top official at the institute where they worked.

    The men “tragically died while testing a new special device,” Alexei Likhachev, the chief executive officer of state nuclear monopoly Rosatom, said at their funeral Monday in Sarov, a high-security city devoted to atomic research less than 400 kilometers (250 miles) east of Moscow where the institute is based.

    The part of the Russian Federal Nuclear Center that employed them is developing small-scale power sources that use “radioactive materials, including fissile and radioisotope materials” for the Defense Ministry and civilian uses, Vyacheslav Soloviev, scientific director of the institute, said in a video shown by local TV.

    They do have nuclear subs. It's pretty common now in developed countries. I think they can handle a portable platform.

    I fixed it so that the link's title isn't so obvious.
    Are you sure you're human though?

    Why do you think that?

    Why do you think that the Russians, or anybody else, have a sufficient level of knowledge to control this?

    I don't trust anyone that much.
    A floating nuclear reactor? That's insane.

    Well there have been nuclear submachines for a long time, so why should this be any different?
    I guess many doubt it will go well because it is Russia who did it, If it had been any other country from the west i believe nobody would care, but since Russia has gotten a bad name, people think they are evil

    Let's hope it fares better than the Kursk, Komsomolets, K-8, K-159, K-429, K-27, & K-219, eh.
