Nuclear Power is Dangerous

Nuclear Power is Dangerous

Chernobyl is excellent reminder to all of us about how dangerous nuclear power is. Chernobyl disaster has happened due to terrible error. It is a misstake, which should never happen. However, here we are 25 years later and disaster has happened again. Tōhoku Earth quake in Japan and nuclear threat again.

Check Point

Inspired by the TV show on Discovery channel “Life after People”, I wanted to post this pictures long time ago. You don’t need to guess what will happen after people. Here is episod for Discovery “Life after People” – 25 years.

For your information: City Pripyat was completely evacuated immediately after Chernobyl Disaster. Pripyat today is a ghost town in the zone of alienation. The zone of alienation is 30 km zone around nuclear reactor guarded by the police and you need to get a permission to get there. That is not very difficult and many people have visited Pripyat.

Nuclear Reactor

Reactor #4 After Disaster

That is how nuclear Reactor #4 looks like after the concrete sarcophagus was built. Some supporting structure has been build around until the new sarcophagus will be ready.

The six meter concrete wall was built to separate other reactors from reactor #4 and allow personel to work. Reactor #3 was restarted 2 month after the accident.

View at the unfinished reactors five and six, with few constructions cranes still in place. People who work there get paid very high (~$1000/mo vs. $300/mo average salary in Ukraine) compare to rest of the country. They track personel exposure to radiation, but workers are trying to tweak measuring equipment and work more hours and get more money.
