Chernobyl: Measurement at the scene of a disaster - 10 years after the disaster

The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986, at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine (then in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, part of the Soviet Union). It is considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in history and is the only level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale. The disaster occurred on 26 April 1986, at reactor number four at the Chernobyl plant, near the town of Pripyat in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR), during an unusual and (as carried out) unsafe systems test at low power. A sudden rapid growth in power output took place, and when an attempt was made for emergency shutdown, an unexpected and more extreme spike in power output occurred which led to a reactor vessel rupture and a series of explosions. This event exposed the graphite moderator components of the reactor to air and they ignited; the resulting fire sent a plume of radioactive fallout into the atmosphere and over an extensive geographical area, including Pripyat. The plume drifted over large parts of the western Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, and Northern Europe. Large areas in Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia had to be evacuated, with over 336,000 people resettled. According to official post-Soviet data, about 60% of the fallout landed in Belarus.

Chernobyl: Nuclear reactors The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident of catastrophic proportions that occurred on 26 April 1986, at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine (then in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, part of the Soviet Union). It is considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in history and is the only level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale. The disaster occurred on 26 April 1986, at reactor number four at the Chernobyl plant, near the town of Pripyat, during an unauthorized systems test. A sudden power output surge took place, and when an attempt was made at an emergency shutdown, a more extreme spike in power output occurred which led to the rupture of a reactor vessel as well as a series of explosions. This event exposed the graphite moderator components of the reactor to air and they ignited; the resulting fire sent a plume of radioactive fallout into the atmosphere and over an extensive area, including Pripyat. The plume drifted over large parts of the western Soviet Union, and much of Europe. As of December 2000[update], 350,400 people had been evacuated and resettled from the most severely contaminated areas of Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine. According to official post-Soviet data, up to 70% of the fallout landed in Belarus. Despite the accident, Ukraine continued to operate the remaining reactors at Chernobyl for many years. The last reactor at the site was closed down in 2000. The accident raised concerns about the safety of the Soviet nuclear power industry as well as nuclear power in general, slowing its expansion for a number of years while forcing the Soviet government to become less secretive about its procedures. Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus have been burdened with the continuing and substantial decontamination and health care costs of the Chernobyl accident. A 2006 report prepared by the Chernobyl Forum, led by the World Health Organization (WHO) states, "Among the 134 emergency workers involved in the immediate mitigation of the Chernobyl accident, severely exposed workers and firemen during the first days, 28 persons died in 1986 due to ARS (Acute Radiation Syndrome), and 19 more persons died in 1987-2004 from different causes. Among the general population affected by Chernobyl radioactive fallout, the much lower exposures meant that ARS cases did not occur". It is estimated that there will ultimately be a total of 4,000 deaths attributable to the accident, due to increased cancer risk.

Pripyat  is a ghost town in the zone of alienation in northern Ukraine, in the Kiev Oblast (province), near the border with Belarus. The city has a special status within the Kiev Oblast being the city of oblast-level subordination (see Administrative divisions of Ukraine) although it is located within the limits of Ivankiv Raion. The city also is being supervised by the Ministry of Emergencies of Ukraine as part of the Zone of alienation jurisdiction. Pripyat was founded in 1970 to house workers for the nearby Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. It was officially proclaimed a city in 1979, but was abandoned in 1986 following the Chernobyl disaster. It was the ninth nuclear-city ("атомоград" (atomograd) in Russian, literally "atom city") in the Soviet Union at its time. Its population had been around 50,000 before the accident. Annual Rate of natural increase was estimated at around 800 persons, plus over 500 newcomers from all corners of the Soviet Union each year. It had been planned that the Prypiat's population should have risen up to 78,000 in the nearest future. Prypiat had a railroad link to Yazov station[citation needed] (Kiev railroad line) as well as a navigable river nearby

Chernobyl: Radioactive clouds over Europe

26th of April 1986. Block number four of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor exploded, a disaster for which the experts have never found a sufficient expression. This is far more than "the biggest accident." Chernobyl is the super–disaster. The radioactive cloud drifts over the neighboring city of Pripjat, but the authorities do not inform either the population or the surrounding countries about the threat of danger. Meanwhile, the radioactivity moves to the west...

Chernobyl: The panorama view of the building of Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant.

The panorama view of the building of Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. The V.I. Lenin Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station consisted of four reactors of type RBMK-1000, each capable of producing 1,000 megawatts of electric power, and the four together produced about 10% of Ukraine's electricity at the time of the accident. Construction of the plant and the nearby city of Pripyat to house workers and their families began in 1970, with reactor № 1 commissioned in 1977. It was the third nuclear power station in the Soviet Union of the RBMK-type (after Leningrad and Kursk), and the first ever nuclear power plant on Ukrainian soil. The completion of the first reactor in 1977 was followed by reactor № 2 (1978), № 3 (1981), and № 4 (1983). Two more reactors, capable of producing 1,000 MW each, were under construction at the time of the accident in 1986.
