giugy3000 #Hiroshima #MuseoDellapace #PeaceMemorialPark. Credo che questo posto mi "chiamasse" sin dal 2006, anno in cui mi diplomai con una tesina sulla bomba atomica #EnolaGay. Attraverso tutti i libri che ebbi modo di leggere sull'argomento, molto più del nazismo, il mondo della guerra nucleare mi sconvolse a tal punto che sentii assolutamente il bisogno di vedere questo luogo una volta nella vita. Oggi quel momento è arrivato. E Hiroshima mi ha accolto sotto un cielo terso, prati verdissimi e mille fiori, in occasione del festival che ogni anno durante la #GoldenWeek riunisce gli abitanti. E pensare che dopo l'esplosione si pensò che la vita non sarebbe mai più tornata. #AtomicBomb #war #RememberHiroshima #NuclearEnergy #silence #Japan #JapanHistory 1d

tattooedscience Don't be intimidated by ANY political constituent to call out the candidates on their anti-science BS. I voted for and support Bernie, but that doesn't mean that I can't disagree with him, especially on issues where he is objectively wrong. #nuclearenergy #feelthenuclearburn #bernieisantiscience #weareproscience #meme #science #sustainable #clean #energy 3d
  •   burnt___reynolds He's also like me not a scientist and most of the research will likely make no sense to him. I not defending him. I'm just saying he's ill informed as most of us are about pretty much everything. 3d
  •   tattooedscience That's a good point, @burnt___reynolds. My personal opinion is that if a person is ill-informed about an issue, they should be taking a position either way. That's part of the reason that I'm so willing to critique him about this. If he made an "informed" judgement, he's wrong, according to the research, and if he made an uninformed judgment, he acted too hastily and he should called out for it. 3d
  •   burnt___reynolds I agree if you don't know they you should always take and objective stand point. But we are all guilty of it from time to time. 3d

bbchindi Even after 30 years of the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant disaster, the Pripyat city built for Chernobyl's workers and their families stays abandoned.
Before the disaster it had a population of 60,000. Now, three decades on, children's shoes and toys are still left in the decaying building that was a kindergarten. 80 mainly elderly people still live within the 30km exclusion zone around Chernobyl.
The accident on 26 April 1986 contributed to the downfall of the Soviet Union, changed the way the world thinks about nuclear energy and has affected an unquantifiable number of people in the region. (Photo: Jerzy Wierzbicki)

misswynwood With the explosion of Chernobyl Nuclear Center in the Soviet Union, on April 26th, 1986, a severe environmental pollution was registered. 200 times more radioactivity than Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs together were expelled to the atmosphere. Miss Wynwood is against #nuclearenergy development in the world. (Photo: http://www.bcd-urbex.com/) #MissWynwood #VoteMissWynwood #nuclear #politics #uselections

Con la explosión de la central nuclear de la Unión Soviética, el 26 de abril de 1986, se registrará una gran contaminación ambiental tras haberse liberado a la atmósfera 200 veces más radiactividad que las bombas de Hiroshima y Nagasaki juntas.

jmjrdc Ground zero. Workers walk towards their shift at the Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor. Today marks the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster. I traveled to the reactor a few years ago to meet with scientists supervising the construction of the sarcophagus which will entomb it. The Exclusion Zone surrounding Chernobyl will be uninhabitable to humans for the next 20,000 years.

Normal Рыцарь Просвещения
naum_vseznaikin Сегодня исполнилось 30 лет с того дня, когда в мирном Чернобыле произошла страшная техногенная катастрофа. В одночасье целые города попали в зону отчуждения и были покинуты своими жителями. На проспектах стоят машины, в открытых окнах развеваются занавески, в песочницах ждут своих хозяек куклы - но на улицах ни души...
О радиации, разрушениях, ликвидации последствий заражения написано много. Но сегодня я хотел бы предложить Вашему вниманию совсем другую книгу, в которой события 26 апреля 1986 г. освещаются глазами простого обывателя. Автор фокусируется на психологических аспектах послеаварийного периода, и потому в этом документально-публицистическом очерке находят отражение порядочность и нечестность, трагедия и любовь - одним словом, жизнь во всей её сложности и многообразии. Жизнь ВО ВРЕМЯ и ПОСЛЕ.
Пусть небо над нами всегда будет мирным и дружелюбным!

davoid4 Today is the thirty year anniversary of the #Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster. A reactor at the power plant suffered a major meltdown in the middle of the night, and it took Soviet authorities several days to realize the magnitude of the situation. By evacuation time, thousands had been fatally exposed to radioactive dust. This would be followed by hundreds of thousands of thyroid cancer cases across Europe in the wake of this event, something still being felt in the region today.

On a hot humid summer day in 2010, @patch_werk and I were fortunate enough to walk around the ruined city of #Pripyat, a place once filled with a vibrant, scientific community, now reduced to a decaying, toxic, and depressing collection of buildings in the middle of a radioactive forest. I don't really have an opinion one way or another of #nuclearenergy, but seeing first hand the worst - case scenario outcome of when things do go wrong, it's enough to give me pause.

  •   mkmicali Also took them several days to admit to it to foreign governments 6d
  •   hewent2gerod Pripyat is number 1 on my travel list, I'd love to hear about this visit sometime. #teamcoal 6d
  •   davoid4 @hewent2gerod very worth it. One of the most moving places I've ever seen. We went back before tours were officially government sanctioned, I think it's a lot more legitimate nowadays. 6d

anderson_acacio "Em 26 de abril de 1986, o mundo testemunhou o maior desastre nuclear da História em termos de custos e vítimas. Uma explosão seguida de incêndio no reator número 4 da usina de Chernobyl liberou grandes quantidades de partículas radioativas na atmosfera, as quais se espalharam sobre as partes ocidentais da URSS e da Europa. Os efeitos desse desastre são sentidos até hoje.

A floresta, existente na área atingida, foi cortada e enterrada a 6 metros sob a terra. O único problema é que as árvores plantadas em cima delas, agora estão arrastando a radiação através das suas raízes, o que significa que a radiação aqui está a subir em vez de descer. Essas árvores adquiriram uma coloração avermelhada, o que resultou na chamada 'Floresta Vermelha'. Atualmente a área correspondente ao acidente de 1986, é considerada o local (ao ar livre) mais radioativo do planeta." #Pripyat #Chernobyl #RedForest #Рыжийлес #Рудийліс #BosqueRojo #ukraine #abandoned #30anoschernobyl #ThirtyyearsChernobyl #Chernobyl30Anos #acidentenuclear #decayed #nuclear #radioactive #radiation #disaster #NuclearEnergy

donnamoderna 30 anni fa #Chernobyl. Il fotoreporter Pierpaolo Mittica ha seguito nel tempo la trasformazione di quei luoghi. Qui alcune immagini del suo racconto #vistocongliocchidi @pierpaolomittica with @repostapp.

Photo of the day: Chernobyl 30 years after.

Olia, 14 years old is affected by an osteosarcoma. Here she is filming her friend Ania playing guitar. Ania suffers from a thyroid and ovaius cancer.
After the Chernobyl disaster, in the contaminated areas there has been an increase of 100 times of the incidence in thyroid cancers and 50 times in other radiation-related tumours, such as leukaemia, bone and brain tumours. The incidence of malformations due to genetic mutations, of pathologies of the senses, cardio – vascular, skeletal and muscular systems and the connective tissues, as well as diseases of the nervous system and psychic disorders have increased by 30 times. The incidence of premature births has increased by 20 times. And there will be still more effects to come from the women who at the time of the disaster were under the age of six and are now starting to have children. Only now will we begin to understand the effects of genetic mutation on future generations.

rosatom_ru На вопрос «Как выглядит ядерное топливо?» можно отвечать по-разному. У нас в ленте уже были урановые таблетки – это один вариант ответа. А вот еще один – тепловыделяющая сборка, или ТВС. Внутри нее находятся металлические стержни – твэлы, каждый из которых «набит» топливными урановыми таблетками. Такая вот матрешка ядерного топлива. Кстати, эта ТВС не простая, а для реакторов на быстрых нейтронах, которые называют будущим ядерной энергетики.
