UK fighter jets escort Pakistani civilian plane carrying 297 to London airport
The United States is planning on building nuclear-powered drones. The innovation will allow an increase in flying time "from days to months," leaving more power available for operating equipment.

wow, you people really believe everything you read. i love how RT russia today only reports about the USA, and spins everything. But, i'll keep reading it because thats the beauty of America, we are incouraged to look at things from all sides. I'm not saying we"re always right, far from it. We're not always wrong either.OOOOW WOW ! I love that bit - '' thats the beauty of America, we are incouraged to look at things from all sides. '' I am still laughing with tears ,did you get lost in translation here or something ? The US looking at things from all sides ? That is a bold statement for a country full of racism ,homophobia and a appetite for destruction that cannot see further than its nose ! I cant wait for the day when your own government starts to imprison its own citizens in the new stile concentration camps build for exactly this purpose with no trial or any charges just in case they may be a threat to national security . You will be singing another song then !
Such purported drones would necessarily require and use highly enriched radioactive fuel, likely plutonium 239.A mere gram of plutonium 239 powderized and exposed to the winds has the potential to cause 1 MILLION cases of cancer.A mere ounce of plutonium 239 powderized and placed into the NYC fresh water aquaducts would poison the entire massive NYC fresh water system.US/Is raeli UAV drones routinely crash. Some are reported when other nations expose that happened, many drone downings go unreported but occur none the less. Presumably, US soldiers would immediately be dispatched to recover any 'nuclear' powered UAV but in no fashion does that guarantee success especially in a hostile nation or in a near impossible enviroment like the world's oceans.The tiny plutonium reactor would power a electrical generator which in turn would drive the electrical engine on the UAV prop and it's massive onboard sensor array's. However unlikely high lift space rockets, a nuclear fueled UAV COULD NOT have heavy shielding and heavy duty protection cases directly due to the weight constraints therefore that directly opens the way to ignoring the horrific problem if even a small amount of Plutonium escapes into the enviroment, just so US/Israel can spread it's global campaign of fear around the world.If a citizen shot one down, they would likely if caught be facing all kinds of fabricated charges (recall how after the Times City 'bomber' everyday Propane Tanks are labeled WMD's now).

The terrorists are the USA/EU gang, therefore these dangerous drones are already in the hands of terrorists, it is now for the world to worry about the level of terror they will unleash on the women, babies and men in different part of the world they will be terrorizing.
What is to stop Iran from hacking this nuclear drone the same way they did the other one?
&n bsp; Should rather be seriously thinking of technology to get rid of homelessness and foreclosures in America!
1st April fools day is on you suckers.
Lets stop arguing about which country is more evil .All nations are guilty of atrocities in their history. No country is innocent! They all share the same common denominator... Mankind! Weather it's domestic violence in the home or wide scale genocide, it's all evil. Lets stop pointing fingers and learn from history rather then justifying it!
A Plan for nuclear powered trains in Russia...then nuclear powered drones in the US (I thought they had plans for one that could glide endlessly at height)?
What next? Nuclear powered buses and cars?
I thought the world had learnt its lesson about nuclear power.
Now that's a great idea! Nuclear drones! Best arm them with biggest nukes you have and let them fly autonomously! Yeah that's great! Artificial intelligence doing the dirty work for the yankies, criminals, big papa, big corps and big money. Oh they will dominate. Let's depopulate this planet god damn! It's about time! Let's kill us all... who cares? Those who order such projects and invest in such insanities don't care for sure, that's the whole point actually, they will not be targeted, they'll target the others of course, and rest assured they'll be safe in their great underground cities while the radiation emissions kill everyone who escaped the blast waves, when everything settles, they'll come out of the ground like snakes (which they trully are) clean the polluted areas and live they're lives happily ever after, with much less problems (people) to carry about. And you, stupid soldiers, mercanaries, stupid stupid policemen, ignorant and arrogant scientists and stupid people of the world just stand by and save your breaths you will need the strength to dig your own graves while big guns, big papas and big corps laugh their a$$es off. America is leading us into the new frontiers and the better future for all of us. Radiation!? Come on, a little radiation can't hurt anybody those are all rumors, let's rock yankies! I'm ready!
What they need is to get it equipped&nbs p;with tekkion beams and photon torpedoes, and instead putting nuclear core they should use the dilithium chamber instead. And finally of course find the right ET to shoot at will they can come out of space or from another place on our poor planet. Live long and prosper...
Forgot to mention ... there will be a trail of fission fragments pouring out the exhaust port of this thing .... you name it ... the NRC will have Kittens post Fukushima
Ahhh it requires a small ceramic Pu core for heating, some reflectors, and some very poor neutron shielding.It will thermally heat the air, and drive a turbine ... or thermal electric and use cooling waste heat to provide some thrust - either or.There are so many designs .... but one of these crash landing at staying critical in the middle of a city is just the ultimate terrorist event.Flying dirty bombers ....
