The Chernobyl Disaster

By Ethan

What is it?

Chernobyl's nuclear power plant exploded on April 28, 1986 due to cooling malfunctions. Over 90,000 casualties were reported.

Where is Chernobyl?

Chernobyl is in northern Ukraine, where people can still visit the site. Tread lightly, however, because (obviously) there is masses of radiation in the vicinity.

What can you do?

Absolutely nothing, unless you want to work in Ukraine on containing Chernobyl. It sounds dangerous, but pretty cool.

What's happening currently?

At the moment, people are trying to contain the Sarcophagus (the building that exploded), and are thinking the project will be completed in 2017. They have been working on it since 2015.

The end

The end.
