25 Years after Chernobyl

Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the meltdown at the Chernobyl nuclear plant. Check out this scary film showing scientists venturing inside the plant's cement sarcophagus, which keeps its nuclear material contained - for the moment.


Last month, I posted this is what a meltdown looks like, a rare silent film that as taken on location just days after the Chernobyl meltdown- even the filmmaker was killed in the process. Also, I urge you to read this interview with a Chernobyl survivor as it relates to the nuclear crisis at Fukushima.
