  2. 2. The control room after the explosion.
  3. 3.  The liquid cooling decomposed into water and hydrogen because of forged and incomplete inspections of the facility. The facility was undergoing budget cuts and forged inspections to maintain maximum efficiency providing power to the surrounding areas.
  4. 4. An improved model of the turbine at Chernobyl
  5. 5.  After the explosion, fires raged throughout the surrounding area; causing extensive damage. The combination of toxic smoke and ash sent the city of Chernobyl into evacuation.
