Hey bro, if you wanted to use my video in your post, go ahead, but ask first.

Aw Shucks

anybody else notice that pretty much all of the numbers were repeated at least once so there were more like 25 facts that were there?
User avatar #492 to #489 - comicsjoey **User deleted account** (05/23/2013) [-]
actually there are only 10 facts.

but they where separated in diferent sentences.

so they can put nice photos of the disasters.

actually this are 2 sentences,

but I separated them so you get the point

have a nice day
User avatar #490 to #489 - biker (05/23/2013) [-]
Just counted them and it's only 20

I actually visited Chernobyl last summer with some colleagues, and you are allowed to go surprisingly close to the reactor, about 150 meters. Also, people still work at the power plant. And something i didn't know was that the other reactors were still being run until 2002.

TL;DR: I went to Chernobyl and i learned a lot of things

The explosion created it's own mineral: chernobylite. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chernobylite

Actually #2 would be more like 100-98 years. I know we had a example problem of half life for the radio-activity in Chernobyl and how long it would take for it to be non-lethal in my MAT 121 course

looks cool, but im not sure about number 10, nuclear reactors don't blow up, they just melt because of the heat, and a explosion 10 times bigger than hiroshima? no way, might blow up due to pressure in the cooling system or something similar but not on the same magnitude as a nuclear bomb.
User avatar #481 to #479 - sidedoor (05/23/2013) [-]
The pressure would have been so great that the explosion would likely be massive. And with all the radiation that would be released, it is likely that it would be hiroshima scale. Besides Hiroshima wasn't even that big when you look at it.

By the sixth day, when the Soviet authorities required three men to step forward, all were aware of the risk. According to Grigori Medvedev, author of The Truth About Chernobyl, a group of soldiers were briefed on the stakes if the valves were not turned, the water not drained. There was also a degree of bribery. While they were unlikely to survive, their families would be richly rewarded...Three men volunteered: Alexei Ananenko, an engineer who knew the location of the valves, and two soldiers, Valeri Bezpalov and Boris Baranov. The trio suited up and entered the radioactive waters of the flooded chamber. All three returned to the surface suffering severe radiation poisoning, but were pleased to see their colleagues jump with joy at the news that the valves were now open. Over the next day 20,000 tonnes of radioactive water was pumped out, and a subsequent report revealed that had this not been done, a thermal explosion would have taken place. The men's reward, like those others who died at Chernobyl, was to be buried in lead coffins, the lids soldered shut.

> Geiger counters only went up to 3.6
What the hell is the point of a geiger counter that DOESN'T tell you when the area you're in has unsafe radiation levels.

Those mushrooms. They can use them to clean the place of radioactive particles.
User avatar #456 - garmol (05/23/2013) [-]
There are two serious problems with this. I have to correct them.

10. Nuclear Power Plants cant explode like an atomic bomb. Its physically impossible, the fuel isnt enriched as the Uranium-235 is thats in an atomic bomb.

8. What kind of worthless geiger-counter has a maximum value that still is safe?
User avatar #458 to #456 - jakeofthesnakes (05/23/2013) [-]
He never said like an atomic bomb, he said bigger than an atomic bomb.
Also, their Geiger-counter was an old version(this happened 1986). So you can't correct it, it's just history.
User avatar #494 to #458 - garmol (05/23/2013) [-]
No, just no. Both of those statements are completely and utterly wrong.
User avatar #482 to #458 - brisineo (05/23/2013) [-]
Wait what? That doesn't make sense...

A nuclear explosion is a nuclear explosion. Hiroshima was a pop compared to nuclear devices today, so a fissile bomb with that yield is not unrealistic, but Uranium-238 is a much more common, more stable isotope used in nuclear reactors that cannot violently explode as U-235 will. (but it does get extremely hot) The explosions in Chernobyl were from over pressurized steam, hydrogen buildup, and the hot carbon moderators being exposed to air. They dived into that water to drain that pool because the reactor material was melting through the ceiling, and would have caused another steam explosion.

Also, they did have 2 higher geiger counters that were capable of reading up to 1000 Roentgens per second, but the first was lost in the explosion, and the second failed to turn on. All their lesser geiger counters went off the scale. Also the director thought that the radiation wasn't as bad as speculated, and said that the third gieger counter brought in was defective and workers could still be there without radiation suits. Constant exposure of 5.6 R/s (or 5.3 Rads per second for you Fallout folk) quickly told a different story.

What about the mutants? I was there, you know?
