Russia’s first-floating nuclear power plant has arrived to its permanent base near an isolated Russian town across the Bering Strait from Alaska, Russian state nuclear energy company Rosatom said on Saturday.

Developed by Rosatom, the plant, known as “Akademik Lomonosov”, set off on a 5,000 km (3,100 mile) journey on Aug. 23 through Arctic waters to reach the Chukotka region.

  1. Russia is playing fucking games with the lives of every person on this planet.

    First they had Chernobyl and the cover up of it. They almost caused a worldwide catastrophe made worse by ego and ineptitude.

    [Then this year they had a nuclear fueled missile explode which they are currently dismissing and covering up. Same story, doctors flown to Moscow after treating the victims of the accident. Moving odd equipment to the area etc etc…](https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/12/world/europe/russia-nuclear-accident-putin.html)

    And now these bond villains are putting a nuclear power plant on a goddamn ship and bringing it to one of the most hostile environments on the planet.

    Absolute stupidity. Russia can fuck right off.

  2. Why are people so freaked out by this? Nuclear reactors on ships aren’t a new idea – there are over a hundred nuclear powered ships currently plying the seas. Nobody is getting their panties in a bunch over that.

    This one will also be permanently moored in a safe harbour.

    I think some here got all their information about nuclear power from the Chernobyl TV series, and it shows.
