I don't know if this was ever posted here, but it's really interesting, and this girl biker relates the facts well.

It's kind of entertaining, but very sobering....enjoy.

This link is worth the time to read and look at the pictures. Hundreds of thousands of people killed by this accident....Incredible!!! I was not aware of the extent of damage to the surrounding area. This was a real eye opener for me.

That's just about the most disturbing thing I've ever read or seen. :(

It's like a snapshot from James Morrow's book "This is the way the World Ends." For even more effect, put a copy of Peter Gabriel's "Red Rain" on the cd player while you browse the website...

:shock:

wow. wow. once more, wow. anybody who doesn't take the time to go through all chapters of this link (27 I think) is doing themselves a great disservice.

i was 10 when this happened. too young to fully understand but old enough to realize the gravity of the situation.

wow...what a link. that girl has bigger balls than me!

That's somehting else... really amazing. The only thing I really remember about about Chernobyl was sitting in my Grandmother's kitchen hearing about it on the nightly news, and reading about it in National Geographic when I was around 11.

The image she paints of the people staring in awe at the glowing clouds above the reactor really strikes a nerve, like a hand, omnipotent, fearsome and magical, reached out and . .. . . Oh how mighty we are. :(

A very moving exhibit of photos and memories. I don't know that I'd have the nerve to travel through that area like she did. Incredible.

I remember that day. I was 7, and back in Poland. Noone told anything like for 2 days or so, but my aunt was a pediatrist for party people's children. They get the Dr. Rugov (sp?) vaccination that day. She called my mom and gave it to my sister and me too.
I saw a movie about the defect births and animals there coupl eyears back. They shoot a wolf, there were two hearts, and some weird organs in it....

Wow, that's amazing, although i am too young to remember that actually occuring, that's a truely sad story. I would be too terrified to walk through those streets, it would remind me too much of 28 days later. :nervous:
