During Fall of 2010, I have an opportunity to travel and see in person the area of the worst nuclear accident in human history. We visited the closed exclusion zone of the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant in Ukraine. I will share another posting which will focus on the visit to the city of Pripyat and the Nuclear Pant itself but here I would like to focus on something else.
I would like to dedicate this blog to numerous heroes who gave their lives to manage the immediate aftermath of the explosion in Reactor 4 of Chernobyl Nuclear Electric Plant which occurred in early hours of April 26, 1986.
Words simply cannot paint it. You have to recognize and acknowledge the true beauty of their sacrifice. Knowing that they will die, they attempted to put the fires out.
The entire collection from Chernobyl and Pripyat can be found at Chernobyl and Pripyat Photos.
