What happened?

Two Russian nuclear monitoring stations meant to detect nuclear radiation went suspiciously quiet in the days after a mysterious explosion at a missile test site in northern Russia earlier this month.

 

Tell me more.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the stations in Dubna and Kirov stopped transmitting data just as levels of radiation spiked in towns near the accident site.

 

What are they saying?

The monitoring stations reported “communication and network issues” as the reason for the silence, although some analysts suspect that Russia may have been trying to restrict evidence of the accident instead.

 

Anything else?

“It is a very odd coincidence that these stations stopped sending data shortly after the Aug. 8 incident,” Daryl Kimball, of the Arms Control Association, a nongovernmental organization promoting arms-control policies, told the Journal.

 

Final word.

“It is probably because they want to obscure the technical details of the missile-propulsion system they are trying and failing to develop.”
