Carter’s voice is gentle when he speaks. He has a rich, deep tone that wraps around her like a safety blanket and she can’t help it but smile. It’s a very small and exhausted gesture but it’s there and she can see the relief sparkle in her son’s blue eyes. He’s a young man now, with brown hair and a stubble showing on his lower face. It suits him. She likes how he looks now, tall and strong and with a quiet sense of confidence surrounding him like an aura. His hair is darker and shorter than the unruly curls she used to ruffle anytime he was teasing her. His eyes are a shade darker than when he was just a little boy crushing on Supergirl and he is wearing a suit that she knows for fact is griffed.
“Yes, sweetheart?” She asks, her lips curling upward in a smirk when he frowns and stares at her. He’s twenty-five now and he doesn’t like when she calls him sweet names, especially not when they are not at home. He doesn’t say anything though and he simply comes to sit in one of the armchair in front of her desk.
“You’re working late.” He states quietly, watching as she put her pen down on the stack of papers she was studying before his appearance. It wasn’t a question and she simply arches a brow, waiting for him to get to the point. He rarely stops by CatCo anymore and she misses the time when he would just sit on one of her couches to do his homework, waiting for her to be done so they could come home together.
While Russian combat submarines such as the Borei-class and Yasen-class vessels are well-known, the Russian Navy also possesses a number of unarmed subs that were previously top-secret. Designed for carrying out specific undersea tasks, these vessels are manned by highly-trained divers. One of four mysterious underwater craft - secret and unarmed BS-136 Orenburg.
The nuclear-powered BS-136 Orenburg is designed for the transportation of deep-water stations to their operational zones. The smaller submarine station “swims” into this vessel, which then delivers it to the area where special operations need to be conducted. This vessel was developed based on a Project 667BDR (Delta-III) submarine.
In 2002, it was converted into Project 09786. During the conversion, the missile compartment was cut from the submarine, and replaced by a compartment for transporting atomic deep-water stations with a comfortable living section.
The Bulletin’s science and security board combines measures of the probability of nuclear war, biosecurity disasters, climate change, and various other doomsday scenarios, to set the clock closer or farther away from midnight. The fewer minutes left until midnight, the closer we are to the end of the world.
On Thursday, the scientists behind the Doomsday Clock moved its hands to 2 ½ minutes to midnight.
Our projected demise has not been so near since 1953
In a statement explaining the decision, the Bulletin of Atomic Scientist’s Science and Security board
pointed to one man: Donald Trump.
An 1945, the scientists involved in creating the first atomic weapons
founded the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, its Doomsday Clock charting
our path toward total destruction through some of the most precarious
moments in history. Read more
