Thread on today's #Russia explosion (this is becoming a habit):
In November 2017, Russia test fired the Burevestnik (SSC-X-9 Skyfall) nuclear-powered cruise missile from it's test location at Pankovo.
Comparison images show the site from the 20th May 2019 appear to be "abandoned". The environmental shelter appears to be gone on the rails. Image courtesy of @ArmsControlWonk shows that this was still present in June 2018.
Today at the Nyonoksa Site on the White Sea an explosion has killed at least 2 people and seriously injured many more. (6 was the last I saw reported). Hazmat team was involved in the evacuation of the wounded and a a small spike in radiation was reportedly detected.

Russian authorities closed an area of ~250 km² (~30×8 km) for shipping due to a deadly incident on #Nyonoksa (#Nenoksa) naval missile testing range mapm.ru/PripAr
For the reference, the wind here is southerly ↑ acc. to GFS model.
HT @Fontanka_spb fontanka.ru/2019/08/08/084
@Fontanka_spb IMHO the sheer length of this narrow area only make sense if a missile broke up to pieces mid-air after being launched to the north
@Fontanka_spb On the other hand, this hypothesis is hard to reconsider with the number of casualties. If the missile didn't fell on the land, how could two people be killed? Were they observing the launch from the sea right under the flightpath? That would be very unsafe
