329 seanjenkins Yeah, that's what happens when you test nukes. It was a underground test, but given North Korea is relatively new to nuke testing things like this are going to happen. Let's just hope that the mountain they are testing the nukes in doesn't collapse. That would be a real problem.

(I'm a bot) ***** > SEOUL - South Korea said on Wednesday traces of radioactive xenon gas were confirmed to be from a North Korean nuclear test earlier this month, but it was unable to conclude whether the test had been for a hydrogen bomb as Pyongyang claimed. > North Korea conducted its sixth nuclear test on September 3, prompting the U.N. Security Council to step up sanctions with a ban on the reclusive regime's textile exports and a cap on fuel supplies. > The detected xenon-133 is a radioactive isotope that does not occur naturally and which has been linked to North Korea's nuclear tests in the past. ***** [**Extended Summary**](http://np.reddit.com/r/autotldr/comments/6ztb8z/south_korea_confirms_traces_of_radioactive_gas/) | [FAQ](http://np.reddit.com/r/autotldr/comments/31b9fm/faq_autotldr_bot/ "Version 1.65, ~208941 tl;drs so far.") | [Feedback](http://np.reddit.com/message/compose?to=%23autotldr "PM's and comments are monitored, constructive feedback is welcome.") | *Top* *keywords*: **test**^#1 **xenon**^#2 **nuclear**^#3 **Korea**^#4 **North**^#5

9 bigbubbuzbrew CNN's leading news story: *Report: Russia proposed full normalization with US under Trump* Lead stories on their "World" link: - Devastation in the Caribbean after Irma - Dire situation as food and water run out - Survivor: I patrolled with a machete - Country music star vows to help Virgin Islands - Macron arrives in Caribbean, pledges to rebuild French territories - Richard Branson films devastation on private island - Hurricane Jose is still churning out at sea I would have hoped at least one link would mention North Korea. But I guess that's not as important as the survivor who patrolled with a machete. On a side note: *North Korea's Nuke Test May Have Been Twice as Strong as Thought* https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-09-13/north-korean-nuclear-test-may-be-been-twice-as-strong-as-thought >New seismic data from the Sept. 3 explosion suggest a blast of about 250 kilotons, compared with an initial estimate of 120 kilotons, analysts Frank Pabian, Joseph Bermudez Jr. and Jack Liu wrote for the website, which is run by the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies. The energy released by the U.S. bomb detonated over Hiroshima in 1945 was about 15 kilotons. Hiroshima - 15Kt bomb. "Little" Kim's Bomb - 250 Kt. So, can we take North Korea seriously and do something or are we, once again, going to wait for tens of millions of people to die.
