    I was googling to do some research on it being open etc and came across this. It's pretty interesting so far!

    There is much to rummage within the circumstances leading to the accident, and of course the human tragedy that ensued. Of all the suffering, what marked me most was the selfless commitment of the first technicians and fire-fighters who responded to the original explosion and tried to quell the fire. Very likely, thanks to them–the first 28 dead of ARS–a further explosion was avoided. An explosion that would likely have resulted in a chain reaction across all reactors in Chernobyl, so large, that most of Europe would be a wasteland for the next 80,000 years. How many of those names do we know?
    This part gave me goosebumps.

    So interesting! And it makes me sick to my stomach at the same time. As I read it, I can't help but picture Japan in my mind & wonder.

    I was 14 yrs old, almost 15 when Chernobyl happened and I remember being scared shitless about the radiation cloud the news said was going to reach the US. Hard to believe it's been 25 years.
