Pripyat near Chernobyl
The Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster of April, 1986 happened towards the end of the Soviet era. You could see the power plant from one roof of one of its apartments. It is now a ghost town that will take centuries to become safe again.
Nuclear energy holds so much potential that many people now see it as essential for the world's future. I think that they are probably right, but sometimes, things go terribly wrong...
