Chernobyl Prints

In the early morning hours of April 26th, 1986, Reactor #4 of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant exploded at the conclusion of a safety test. The disaster would kill thirty one people within three months, shorten the lives of thousands more, and require the evacuation of more than 100,000 from a thirty kilometer radius around the plant. More than 600,000 workers were involved cleanup and decontamination efforts, which continue even today.
