A 30th Anniversary Celebrated Quietly
Read this 30 Years Later Chernobyl talks about the near-completed shelter at Chernobyl.
If only we could call this Science Fiction.... but it is very real, folks.
"The arch, called the New Safe Confinement, is being built — at a cost of at least $1.7 billion — to last 100 years. Inside, the radioactivity levels will be so high that normal maintenance, like painting, will not be possible. So inside and out, the arch is covered in stainless steel, and dehumidified air will be circulated around the structure’s steel trusses to prevent rust."
