French watchdog points at Russia over radiation cloud

  French watchdog points at Russia over radiation cloud The radioactive cloud detected across Europe late last year may have been caused by an incident in Mayak nuclear facility, one of Russia's biggest, France's radioactivity surveillance institute said Tuesday. "One possible hypothesis is that of a leak coming from an incident during an operation involving radioactive fuel cooled for around two years in Mayak complex, which is in the area between the Volga and the Urals," France's Institute for Radioprotection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN) said.European monitoring stations began detecting increased levels of the Ruthenium-106 isotope in the atmosphere in late September.

MOSCOW, Feb 12 (Reuters) - Emergency workers in Russia searched snow-covered fields outside Moscow on Monday, looking for body fragments and clues after a fatal plane crash a day earlier killed all 71 people on board.

President Vladimir Putin has ordered a special commission to investigate what caused the AN-148 plane operated by Saratov Airlines to crash outside Moscow shortly after taking off for the city of Orsk about 900 miles (1,500 km) southeast of the capital.

Among the possible causes investigators are looking into are weather, human error and theplane's technical condition. The crew did not send any distress signals.

Experts plan to study the plane's two flight recorders, which were recovered, as well as planefragments. Footage from a CCTV camera that captured some of what happened was posted online on Monday. It showed what looked like a large ball of fire streaking through the sky.

Debris and human remains were spread over a radius of one km (less than a mile) around thecrash site and recovery teams had found over 200 body fragments so far, the RIA news agency reported, saying the search could carry on for a week.

Russian Engineers Arrested For Using Nuclear Weapons Facility To Mine Cryptocurrency

  Russian Engineers Arrested For Using Nuclear Weapons Facility To Mine Cryptocurrency Russian authorities say they have arrested several engineers employed at the the All-Russian Research Institute of Experimental Physics in Sarov, a top secret nuclear weapons facility, because they were involved in a cryptocurrency-mining scheme at work. The tightly guarded nuclear facility is where the USSR's first nuclear bomb was built. According to the BBC, it has about 20,000 employees and one of the country's strongest supercomputers, which can run at one petaflop, or perform a quadrillion operations per second. That's ideal for running nuclear scientific calculations and simulations.
