I was 11 when it happened, I knew it was bad but holy chit!
That and the deceit to cover it up.
Fantastic show! As a former Reactor Operator, I was fascinated. I knew some of the detail, but the initial debrief we got so many years ago was not the whole story.
Also, to be fair, some of the things they mentioned were exaggerated, and may be untrue- the possibility of the megaton explosion (highly unlikely), and the "bridge of death" (unproven, not likely). But still, I very much enjoyed the mini series. It made me go back and read several articles and accounts of events.
Interesting series. I liked it because it gives the average viewer a decent idea of life back then in the Soviet Union. By the way, it may be Russia today but the bad guys are all still there.
As to Chernobyl, it ain't over yet. There is much to do and a lot of contaminated area, not to mention the people affected in nations outside the Soviet Union.
I think Japan's Fukushima is going to be much more deadly.
Really? On what basis? The total release from Fukushima was much smaller, and less violent.
I read reports on both sides of the bridge of death.
I would lean that it did happen but undocumented between the hysteria of the situation and the secrecy of the KGB.
A couple of physics articles I read, they basically said the calculations to get a megaton explosion were absurd.
But since something like that never happened before, they were just hypothesizing.
Get out of here S.T.A.L.K.E.R
Excellent series IMO.
Well made; the sets and scene locations were totally believable.
On the basis of release. They cannot control Fukushima. It is polluting the ocean as we speak...as well as the air around it. But really, it depends on who you listen to. They can operate the other reactors there. What happens when the next earthquake hits?
I was always curious about the areas around Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Do they still have high levels of radiation there?
