Chernobyl Disaster

Some documentaries about the last major nuclear disaster in former USSR.  It is a reminder of the danger of the nuclear energy industry, and for people to have a glimpse of what life might be after the current nuclear disaster at Fukushima, Japan.

Chernobyl could have wiped out the entire Europe, if not for the bravery of many who sacrificed their own lives for the greater good.  The radiation can be so dangerous that even the robots will go haywire and breakdown.  Electronics couldn't hold up under the heavy radiation.

Chernobyl disaster was rated 7, the maximum on the scale of seriousness of nuclear accidents, and now Japan's case has been raised from the initial 4, to the current level 6, with a potential to go to 7, which will be the same as Chernobyl disaster.
