Today Marks 25 Years Since Chernobyl

Today Marks 25 years since Chernobyl.

The area around the site of the world’s worst nuclear disaster remains a wasteland 25 years later.  The occasion was commorated today in Russia with memorial services and anti- nuclear protests. 

( From Reuters) ‘On April 26 1986, the No. 4 reactor at the Chernobyl plant, then in the Soviet Union, exploded and caught fire after a safety test experiment went badly wrong.

The blast sent radiation billowing across Europe.

A total of 31 people died immediately but many more died of radiation-related sicknesses such as cancer, many of them in what is today Belarus.

Tens of thousands were evacuated, never to return, from Prypyat, the town closest to the site which then had a population of 50,000.’

This anniversary, combined with recent events in Japan, has elevated public concer about the safety of Nuclear power.

We’d like to hear your thoughts….
