Russian scientists test perpetual nuclear reactor for submarines

Russian scientists developed and successfully tested the active zone of a nuclear reactor that lasts throughout the lifecycle of an atomic submarine.

The active zone of the reactor contains nuclear fuel, where the controlled chain reaction takes place. Currently, one needs to recharge a reactor once in 5-10 years. It usually takes about a month to recharge the reactor.

The reactor, which does not require recharging, will allow to considerably increase the operation rate of the submarine, the former commander of the Northern Fleet, Admiral Vyacheslav Popov, told RIA Novosti.

The new reactor was tested on a fourth-generation submarine. In the Russian Navy, they are Yasen and Borey class submarines. The Design Bureau of Mechanical Engineering named after Afrikantov is the lead developer of active zones of nuclear reactors for the Russian Navy.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the Trump regime "sought options to strike Iran," falsely saying it may pursue a course no previous US leadership considered. More on this below.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
