Aftermath of Chernobyl disaster.

Don't know if anyone posted about this either. Quite possibly.


"On 26 April 1986 at 01:23:44 a.m. (UTC+3) reactor number four at the Chernobyl plant, near Pripyat in the Ukrainian SSR, exploded. Further explosions and the resulting fire sent a plume of highly radioactive fallout into the atmosphere and over an extensive geographical area. Nearly thirty to forty times more fallout was released than had been by the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki."

Just a few photos I've come across. Quite sad & disturbing. Wasn't sure whether or not to post these ones since they are deformities caused by human-related radioactive incidents than nature.... but hey... I guess it's nature none-the-less.
