The Russian government is searching for a nuclear-powered missile that was lost somewhere in the Barents Sea during a failed test last fall.

According to CNBC, the search for the missing piece of ordinance will involve three ships and will take place in the cold waters north of Russia and Norway.

Anonymous sources told CNBC that Russia tested this type of missile four times from November through February, but each test resulted in a failure. Russia then unveiled the high-tech weapon to the public in March, saying it could reach anywhere in the world.

According to CNBC, the tests failed when the nuclear-powered portion of the engine failed to ignite mid-flight, so the missiles plummeted to the Earth after the gasoline that powered its initial journey burned out.

Russia has been testing — and boasting about — new military technologies in recent years as it seeks to beef up its military with new missiles.
