No 'Fail Safe' systems in Norway

Early morning of December 9 2009, Norway residents were witness to an event probably never before seen.

The sky event appeared as something out of Star Trek.

The phenomenon was described as a blue light appearing from behind a mountain, then rising in the sky whereupon a huge spiraling pinwheel developed and filled the morning sky.

The event lasted about twelve minutes or so.

The Bulava ICBM (SS-NX-30) is designed for deployment on Borey-class Project 955 nuclear-powered submarines. The first submarine in the series, the Yury Dolgoruky will be equipped with 16 Bulava ballistic missiles, each carrying up to 10 nuclear warheads and having a range of 8,000 kilometers (5,000 miles). The sub is due to be commissioned late 2009 or early 2010.

Russian officials earlier denied any missile launch.

Latest reports now suggest Norway may have been notified of potential launches as part of an understanding with Russia.

So, are these actually common events? Why are the communications so lousy?

In the same region of the world where numerous world leaders are discussing their concerns about climate change, one might expect a discussion about Fail Safe systems.
