The substances were identified as “technogenic radionuclides” – strontium-91, barium-139, barium-140 and lanthanum-140. These are fast-decaying radioactive substances that would emit inert radioactive gases if exposed to the open air.Ähm, ... kein Caesium-137?
But the four radionuclides identified by Roshydromet on Monday are extremely unusual, according to Andrei Zolotkov, a chemist who spent 35 years working on Russia’s nuclear icebreaker fleet and knows the details of typical nuclear reactors.In der Tat!
The identified radionuclides are of a type that could be produced in a uranium-235 reaction commonly used in nuclear reactors. But even then, strontium-91 is exotic, he says. And other radionuclides, such as caesium-137, should have also been detected.
“As to what kind of reactor was being tested, there are two main possibilities: it was either a nuclear ramjet engine, which would be air-cooled, or a more conventional reactor using a coolant like water. Again, I’m puzzled why, if it were a ramjet engine in a rocket, it would have been started on the ground, since those reactors require air to flow through them at a high speed to operate.”Das ist alles merkwürdig.
Die naheliegende Erklärung wäre natürlich, dass die Behörden alle unter einer Decke stecken und hier mal wieder das Surkow-Playbook abspielen. Da geht es ja nicht darum, ein Narrativ zu setzen, sondern im Gegenteil alle möglichen Narrative in Zweifel zu ziehen.
