I found it on the internet therefore, it must be true.

The is the closest humanity has ever come tn creating
Medusa.
If you were to leek at this, you would die instantly. End of story,
The image is of a reactor core lava formation in the basement of
the Chernobyl nuclear plant. It' s called the ' s Feet and
weighs
hundreds torts, but is eney a couple meters across.,
Oh, and regarding the Medusa thing? This picture was taken
through a mirror around the corner ofthe hallway. Because the
wheeled camera they sent up to take pictures of it was destroyed
by the radiation.

Radioactive elements have half lifes, which shows how many atoms decay and send out alpha, beta, and other forms of energy hazardous to humans. The pure corium would still fry your ass within seconds. It'll take hundreds of thousands of years for this to become safe enough to be within fifty miles of

There were three stages to the contamination resulting in the elephant's foot.

The initial stage where it was above 1000 degrees Celsius, the cooling phase (still extremely high, but less so) and the condensing stage, which in the end was exposed to water, further increasing the contamination.

The first and third stages meant certain death.

Radioactivity decays over time, in general what is completely lethal today can be fairly innocuous in some years or decades. Depends on when the different photos were taken.

Just read up on it, It's pure Corium enveloped in a layer of Silica. It's gives off 1000 Rads/Hour. A lethal dose is 500 Rad in 5 hours. At this rate (2.8/s), you would die in under two minutes. Although those are based on findings from years after the actual meltdown.
>tl;dr this ****** legit, but not as extreme now.

You wouldn't die in 2 minutes, but you would receive a lethal dose of radiation in that time. Then you would die a horrible death about a week later from radiation poisoning.

If you only stay 2 minutes and than receive no more radiation on your way out. If you stay near that thing for 2 minutes, you will probably be dead within an hour.

Radiation dies down after long periods of time, and you can survive being radiated, especially if you can get medical attention. I would also like to point out that someone took a photo of the guy taking a photo of it.

Or it could be that the radiation died down due to the fact that that was taken several years after it.

This was taken during an intermediate stage in the formation of the elephant's foot.

It's still deadly, it's radiation level HAS dropped, but not nearly as fast as many people think.

This picture was taken about a decade later. The radiation levels lowered, and even though it's still radioactive, dying because of radioactiveness is pretty strange, since there aren't a lot of places that have too much radioactiveness. Worst case scenario, you'll feel sick as **** and puke a lot, but you won't die, mostly with special medical attention.

First the reactor ran out of water/coolant. Then a small explosion happened, which busted the coolant valve. People ****** around in trying to fix the problem, but the situation still escalated. Eventually a bigger explosion happened that cracked the plant's roof. Air got in, and a radioactive fire started up and that's when **** got REALLY *********.
They ran out of (semi)professional firefighters and got around a quarter million people from Pripyat, the town to support the plant, and they all went to try put the fire out. With BUCKETS of WATER. Against a 1000+ degrees celsius RADIOACTIVE FIRE.
Anyway, all the evaporated steam that went up into the atmosphere is what caused ******** of harm to the environment. Eventually some dude figured out that sand mixed with boron (to absorb neutrons) works better than plain old river water in putting that **** out.
And because of Party stupidity and hostility during the Cold War, the first anyone not Soviet (and even then, not even those not immediately in Pripyat) learned of it was when radiation alarms in Sweden (or maybe Norway, somewhere around there) indicated that the outside air was more irradiated than their reactor room.

>>TL;DR here
To answer your question... I'd make a guess and say that judging by the heat estimates during the estimates, that might be the entire reactor, melted to slag.
It's a shame. Ukraine was the most fertile farmland in the Union at the time.

Yeah it's from STALKER, a series of games set in an alternate future in an area called "The Zone", in Ukraine where the Chernobyl reactors blew up, the player is a STALKER, which is a scavenger that looks for irradiated relics, you compete with other STALKERS, and the military. It's worth checking out. Very buggy, but fun.
