Russia has carried out a test launch of its Satan 2 nuclear missile weapon, according to the Russian defence minister.
Also known as RS-28 Sarmat, the missile was launched from the Plestek Cosmodrome spaceport, 500 miles north away from the city of Moscow.
The rocket traveled for 3,600 miles, hitting a target at the Kura test range. This range is an intercontinental ballistic missile impact area located in the far east of Russia.

Three submarines capable of carrying nuclear warheads also carried out successful ballistic missile tests, while three bombers hit ground targets with cruise missiles.
Two of the submarine-launched missiles were fired in the Okhotsk Sea, north of Japan and close to North Korea, the Russian military said.
A third missile was fired from the Barents Sea, in the Arctic Ocean.
Russian military forces ‘have carried out an exercise to manage its strategic nuclear forces,’ the ministry said in a statement.
Concerns among members of the international community were raised earlier this month after Russia carried out test exercises which involved the use of intercontinental ballistic missile launchers.
Large-scale war games were carried out only last month, administered by Russia and Belarus.
The 100-tonne weapons – which could enter service as early as 2019 – will make the bombs dropped on Japan look like “popguns”, experts have said.
Is this beginning of e new “Cold War”?
