      @Marcus Hillerström He's clearly never heard of Fukishima because he still thinks this was the worst one!

    For anybody wondering, there is a video (on youtube) of a ukrainian crew wandering under the sarcophagus, around the ruins. I dont remember what its called, but you can search for it. Also yes theres a game in the chernobyl setting, theres ganna be a new game soon.

    Just need Godzilla's foes to come and eat up some radiation \o/

    Not as concerning as Fukushima, radiation has been filling the world’s oceans, notice they don’t talk about anymore, like it’s been fixed ? I don’t eat fish anymore.

    How can anybody put up such a video full of pseudoscience, liees and misinformation and STILL get 5 million views is beyond me. Oh, well HBO Chernobyl did it first.

    This is complete bullshit. The only people who died at Chernobyl were the 20 something firefighters who tried to put down the fire. Radiation poisoning is and was well understood back then. Radiation is not a mysterious enemy that fuels your worst anxieties like some horror movies.

    A quick aside - the name of the capital city not in the language of occupational force is Kyiv. You can approximate native pronunciation by saying Kiiv (two short ee’s) with a stress on the second vowel. Many would thank you for the effort. Chernobyl is also derived from Russian. Native pronunciation would yield a Chornobyl spelling, literally and intentionally meaning “a mugwort”.

    It is simply not true that most liquidators are either sick or dead.

    That's bs they never told either serve two minutes or two years.

    Guys, the soldiers were from all over the USSR, different ages, believers or atheists. They were demanded to go do it as if you're in the army or out, whether you had families and kids they all had to go.... A lot of them died, some are still alive but permanently damaged.

    could we do sumting to get it so hot it melts the ground under it, so it sinks and keeps on melting and sinking till it reachess under the mantle? like a hot bolt on ice.

    Wow 7 seconds into the video and already its factually wrong. Soviet nuclear weapons test at Semipalatinsk is the worst having 4x the radiation chernobyl pumped into the atmosphere. One could even say the windscale fire having the worse reator fire or even mile Island. Depends on your definition of disaster? Are we talking the fire? Are we talking radiation? Are we talking deaths??? Ether way chernobyl comes no where close and is only regarded as the worst in "recent history" because its the most recent baring fukushima and the Soviet nuclear weapons test at Semipalatinsk was strongly covered up by Russia. It's like me stubbing my toe "it was the worse accident I've ever had in recent time" 🙃 but not the worst accident in my history. I can't even watch the rest knowing it's going to be factually wrong.

  • KaZooPA

    Someone send shiey this video... he’ll get to the bottom of it

  • Zalphor

    This is actually exciting in a good way. I hope we learn something new about radiation and radioactive materials. Imagine the concepts waiting to be understood in the basement of Chernobyl. Porous reacting rock-like material doing its own thing sounds almost sci-fi.

    i can see that we are seeding our own destruction as we speak, I guess human are just talking cancer cells

    Does “regular” water moderate hot neutrons very well? I thought it was the deuterium in heavy water that did that job. Hence heavy water in India’s CANDU reactors. [I know, but I really want to see if anyone is paying attention.]

    the raw power of nuclear energy is so incredibly terrifying, even though humans know how to safely handle it.

    Nowhere on the planet has Darwinian natural evolution ever occurred at the rate that it currently occurs in the 'Hot Zone' around Chernobil and along the Pripyat River. No humans around to meddle or compete for resources. Fauna die off from radiation after they breed at a higher rate. DNA destabilized by radiation. No traffic hazards, no one spraying insecticides, no one spreading salt on roads. Reduced Air traffic. Hunters still poach and black-market the meat of Deer, Bear and wild animals to Belarus and Russia though, Yum. Ikea doesn't Geiger-counter test the spruce or pine that gets delivered. This disaster continues.

    Awakens wtf you talking about its been burning away all this time you idiot, all they did was cover it up as much as posible to keep the radiation down to a safer level, they never put the melt down out how could they so this whole waking up crap is crap cuz its been awake its just finally burning its way out again

    I love this video. Nuclear energy is our future. It's the only way humans are going to leave earth. And it's something we as humanity needs to embrace and not be afraid of and call for nuclear energy to end. Even if we took 1% of the money put into other energies (especially petroleum and oil) we could figure out a way to deal with the waste water from nuclear energy and maybe even find a way to reuse it.

    So wait, "neutron flux density". Is this also important if your running a Flux Capacitor? 🤭

    What if there is a monster in those basements, something similar to the Master from Fallout 1? What if all of the victims who died inside the basements had their bodies transformed into a large, biological mass that feeds on radiation to survive? Probably not, it's just science fiction, but the universe continues to surprise us with new things as time progresses and we discover more of what science is capable of.

    Worst nuclear disaster in history? Hiroshima and Nagasaki would rank #1 for me.

    Don't scare people with this stories. Core has steel bellow it, even if parts couldn't be controlled by boron injections, core would have to have certain shape to support fission. They know what they are doing, otherwise risk would be too high. We have to go full nuclear or face end of civilisation. MIT wrote about it, check article at Wice.

    Imagine you dig up the past and find out that the accident possibly was not an accident. Maybe something arranged to cover up other nuclear releases/accidents/research releases in other places on earth. The odd thing is the ones in the USA broadcasting the criminal events use a plane to target those who oppose them. When the times are raised ( and we see the patterns of criminals operating in high places) we have to question the use of the laser plane. In this time and prior to the Chernobyl event. You can't hide the elements found in past. It will be very excellent if the USA takes down the criminal dope running communications and fake government communications before more things are released.
