Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster

It happened on April 26 of the distant 1986 some 100 km north of Kiev, the capital city of this Eastern European nation. Reactor # 4 of the Chernobyl (Chornobyl) nuclear power station exploded as a result of a mistake that occurred at the time of a routine daily maintenance operation was performed. Tons of radioactive stuff were propelled into the open skies. That was an equivalent of  90 Hiroshima bombs.

The heavily populated city of Kiev was spared - in a way - from disastrous nuclear contamination, as the winds were blowing mostly north and west over a few days immediately after the accident. The fallout scattered over the neighboring Belarus, Russia, and Poland, as well as in part over the Baltic region, and even Scandinavia. It affected one-fifth of the territory of Belarus. It also covered 5% of Ukrainian territory as well as select parts of Russia.

A zone with a 30-kilometer radius around the power plat was demarked shortly thereafter. More than 130,000 people were evacuated from the zone and the adjacent areas remaining at a high risk of radiation exposure and contamination. Reactor 4 was enclosed in a so-called sarcophagus, a huge construction of steel and concrete. It is supposed to keep the radian inside.

About 600,000 people from all over the former Soviet Union joined a gigantic clean-up operation inside the Exclusion zone. They are known as "liquidators".

Although the status of the 180 tons of radioactive material entrapped inside the nuclear power plant is still unclear, there is a consensus among the scientists that the risks of the sarcophagus exploding are truly minimal. They better be right .....

*Rates are exclusive of the mandatory $10 accidental trip insurance sold by the zone authorities.
