Radiation reduction


Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.


It has been thirty years since the Chernobyl disaster had occurred where a  nuclear reactor had went off due to a lack of safety precautions and improper treatment of the facility. It had started with the main structure spontaneously combusting in a burst of nuclear radiation followed by the coolant reciprocal also exploding due to massive amounts of pressure made by steam in attempts to cool off the disaster zone, from there it had released far more nuclear waste than the bombs dropped on both Nagasaki and Hiroshima combined. With this being known as the worst nuclear disaster to occur, Russia is beginning to build a large sealing chamber around the sight of the disaster in efforts to contain the mass amounts of radiation that is leaking out even today. The finally completion date is said ti be the end of 2017.
