Ghost Town of Chernobyl

Ghost Town of Chernobyl

ghosttown.jpg

Today is the 20th anniversary of the Chernobyl Accident. I was only 8 years old when this tragedy happen and vaguely remember the news about a nuclear devastation in what was a super far away place for me.

So to recap for our generation: 20 years ago today, an explosion in the nuclear power plant in the city of Chernobyl, Ukrain (part of the Soviet Union back then) caused a radioactive spillout that spread to the Western Soviet Union, Eastern and Western Europe, UK, and as far as the eastern U.S.

According to one report, the explosion released over 400x more radiation than the atomic bomb of Hiroshima. Today, millions of people are suffering from/will develop some form of cancer due to the exposure.

For more info:
Wikipedia's explanation of the cause, the accidents, and follow up reports done in the past 20 years.
New York Time's article on rising number of thyroid cancer patients, especially amongst the immigrants from the former Soviet Union

Here is amazing picture essay of what the Chernobyl Ghost Town looks like now (picture above taken from this site)

The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is a fascinating place to visit.

I visited the area for two days in June 2006 with a former resident of Pripyat.
We got a tour of the Chernobyl Plant (including the Reactor 4 control room),
several of the abandoned villages, and Pripyat. I have posted a photo journal
of my trip at:

Uno spazio per dire la vostra sull'operato del governo e dell'opposizione.

My mind is like an empty room. Nothing seems worth thinking about. More or less not much noteworthy happening worth mentioning, but it's not important. I guess it doesn't bother me. I've just been letting everything wash over me lately.

Posted by: all-roses at 03.09.2007 11:47 PM


More or less nothing seems important. It's not important. Shrug. Whatever. I've just been hanging out doing nothing, but eh. I can't be bothered with anything lately.

I haven't been up to anything. That's how it is. Not much on my mind right now. I can't be bothered with anything recently, not that it matters. It's not important.
