  • Chernobyl
    By Patrick Finney And Hunter Craig
  • Background Information
    A power plant 15 Kilometers from Chernobyl exploded after a failed experiment on the reactor. The turbine-experiment lead to the failure of the emergency shutoff system, causing the core to overheat, blowing the top off of the facility, sending tons of nuclear-radiated lead, ash, and concrete ash into the atmosphere.
  • Control Room

  • Events proceeding to the Explosion
    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.
  • Chernobyl Turbine

  • Aftermath
    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.
  • Hotspots surrounding Chernobyl, radiated areas, will remain ‘hot’ for over 300 years, and the explosion eliminates any agriculture in and around Chernobyl.
    The whole incident deducted 2.3 billion dollars a year.
