In Ukraine, on April 26, 1986 a Nuclear bomb exploded and caught on fire. The “ radioactive” cloud reached up to 3,280 feet up into the sky.

The wind carried the radiation into central Europe.

One material has a “half time” which means in thirty years half of the atoms will still be radioactive.The explosion happened when Ukraine was the Soviet Union.

People in Ukraine still not have returned to their homes, they might never be able to because there is still radiation still in metal and other materials they own.
