I don’t have much to say on this, but if you’re interested at all in the after effects of the disaster at Chernobyl in 1986, check out the site below.

Neil Byrne went on a tour of Chernobyl, and has now published a set of 29 photos looking at the plant and town. Quite amazing pictures really, and very stirring.

The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukraine was the site of the largest ever nuclear disaster, which occurred on 26 April 1986. There is some excellent information on it on this Wikipedia page, if you want to read more.

Hi Marina, thanks for stopping by. It was indeed a terrible disaster, but one that (hopefully) serves as a lesson and reminder to us all now, 25 years ago.
