For the past 10 or so minutes I have been captivated by this man's insight and what he discovered while visiting the region 20 years since the nuclear blowout.

Chernobyl | Magnum In Motion

After the intro I suggest you move onto the Chernobyl Legacy, some of the things there are truly incredible, I find it hard to explain, and simply urge you to watch it for yourself.

Please share what you think.

This is also well worth a read if you're interested in Chernobyl or the surrounding area.

Sounds more like a Sci-Fi channel doc. Should another chernobyl happen, Europe wouldn't survive a second time. Look on the consequences of just ONCE.

I think that its pretty sad to see such areas turn into ghost towns. reminds me of COD4 since it gave me a better image of what the place looks like.

they were talking about how the guys sent to clean up the area had to drain the plant of water that firemen had used to put out the fires. They said if the radioactive molten liquid mixed with the water, it would have created a reaction that would have exploded and made most of Europe uninhabital

Many radioactive isotopes have a half-life (As in, the point at which it begins to degrade) of 250,000 years. And that is only a very rough estimate. Why do you think that the place is a Ghost town today? The amount of radiation still poisoning the area is crazy. Watching the slideshow I provided shows that with the mutation.

the mutations really freaked me out and filled me with sadness. poor kids... its amazing how things that provides us with such a precious rescource could ruin the lives of many people.
