    What are the Russians messing with now?

    Russian village near nuclear-powered missile explosion to be briefly evacuated

    Reactor power missile with radioactive exhaust, or a reactor pushed too close to its material limits?
    Five scientists died in an explosion, now a village a few miles off is evacuated.
    I know we have some old nuclear powered aircraft engines in Arco Idaho, but this sounds like something running at much higher power levels.
    Likely a missile, not a space ship.
    Has anyone found a clue as to what's going on over there?

    Here's a good shot of the explosion, hidden behind an annoying robot detector. Looks like regular old rocket fuel to me, and pretty big. Perhaps the thing blew before the fission stage started up?
