Ride Through Chernobl, not for the weak!

The following represents a young lady's motorcycle
through the "dead zone" at Chernobyl. Sometimes our
past stays around for a while. Click on the word
"beginning" to start the story.

This is an amazing and an eerie thing to read and
see the pictures. It was long ago and far away and I
doubt anyone in the US had any real idea of how bad
it really was. It is like looking at a bad wreck, you'd
rather not, but you look anyway!

I lived in Germany when this happened and they had warnings for us not go go outside into damp grass for several days because the wind stream came from Russia at that time. It was pretty ugly. Of course, it rained (as it does so often there) the next day and everything was wet. :confused1

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&s...e+fake&spell=1

did a little research, looks to me its very possible it could be faked, a few diffrent peoples "first hand" accounts of what really happened, how the pictures where staged and they where really with a tour group etc, google is your friend.

Art Bell wanted to interview her when the site was popular back in teh day, but never did because they found out the story was faked. Oh well.

If you don't mind me asking, why where you in Germany back then? A resident or where you or somebody you knew stationed over there? Just a little curious because I have been digging around for somebody who can do me a little linguistic favor, and no, none of the online language translators will help. PM me so I can tell you a bit more please, thanks.

If Art Bell says its fake, then its fake.

Anyone notice the kamasaki jacket in some pictures and a different black jacket in others?
plus the giegercounter(sp?) she was using kept changing.

Plus, if i ride my bike somewhere cool...i take pictures of my bike in said cool setting.

Yeah. My roomates Dad just retired as Director of Operations for STP, the Nuke power plant down in Bay City. When we lived in Lake Jackson(40 miles away) he always said we were in the second ring, the ring that didnt get vaporized instantly but instead got to go nice and slow and painful.
I will say that at least these nuke plants here take great pains to find the best of the best, equipment and people.
I was more worried living about 5 miles from Dow and all the othewr dozen or so chemical plants in Freeport. Dow used to have a Magnesium Plant(since closed). The engineers that I knew said that if the mag cells ever went, pearland MIGHT be safe.
wow.

A meltdown will not result in a nuclear explosion as in bomb. Though some of the weapons grade components may be present in varying quantities depending on the type of reactor, they will not exist in the enough quantity or be arrayed in the right configuration for supercriticality. There are also no presence of high explosives for impolsion. What you end up with in exposed core and the release of a dozens of radioactive isotopes; some of which decay to safe levels in a few days while others take many years. Such accidents are completely survivable. Only the first responders have the greatest worry.
