That actually isn't true. The only form of supression of the radiation is the concrete they poured on it. Uranium 235 (The form of uranium that was used by Chernobyl) has a half life of 703,800,000 years. We're a few months over 28 years into that. If you don't know how half lives work, the term comes from how long it takes for the material to decay halfway. It divides itself in half after each time period, meaning it goes from 703,800,000 to 351,900,000 and then to 175,950,000 and so on.

Basically, It's never going to be safe to live in again for the known possible future.

Wut?
I appreciate the effort, but that's not how halflife works.
#105 - freakyorange (07/05/2014) [-]
Taken from wikipedia; "Half-life (t½) is the amount of time required for a quantity to fall to half its value as measured at the beginning of the time period."

Image is a chart of it. Perhaps you misunderstood what I meant?
User avatar #107 - smokingman (07/05/2014) [-]
I know what halflife is, but:

You first say that uraniums's halflife is 703,800,000 years.

Then you say that, past this time, its halflife becomes 351,900,000 years.

Which makes absolutely no sense.
I don't think I misunderstood anything.
User avatar #108 - freakyorange (07/05/2014) [-]
maybe my math was wrong. Hold up, I'll check.
User avatar #109 - smokingman (07/05/2014) [-]
No, no, not the math, it's the logic.

The halflife is constant, it's the quantity that is halved.
User avatar #110 - freakyorange (07/05/2014) [-]
Then I guess I'm an idiot, too. Either way, it's still a long time.
User avatar #130 - fistpump (07/05/2014) [-]
You need to take into account that half-life is not something that is literal.
A newly-formed and perfectly preserved radioactive isotope with a half life of 10 years will not degrade to half of it's original potency exactly 10 years after it is created, it will constantly degrade over time, and people have measured the rate at which every known isotope degrades, and we have used that to predict how long it will take for each isotope to degrade to half of its original potency.
This means that an area that is highly exposed to our new radioactive isotope will take up to 10 years to become completely radiation-free, as-opposed to it taking exactly 10 years.
The isotope could reach a point where it is no longer dangerous to humans, yet still could not have degraded to even half of it's potency, it all depends on the amount of radioactive substance. Although the initial amount of radioactive substance in Pripyat was huge (enough to kill you should you walk there unprotected for just a few minutes, even seconds in some areas) the amount there now is relatively scarce. You can walk around the town unprotected for at least a few hours before you should probably consider hauling ass.
The reason why it is reasonably safe now by comparison to 20 years ago is because of the weather. Environmental factors. Rain can dilute and wash away the radioactive particles, the soil can churn and bury them, and the wind can blow radioactive debris and particles away.
Scientists predict that Pripyat will be completely safe (not free of radiation, but still safe) in around 600 years. It's a long time, sure, but it's not exactly the foreseeable future.

Wow. I should have read this back before I posted it.
When I said "This means that an area that is highly exposed to our new radioactive isotope will take up to 10 years to become completely radiation-free, as-opposed to it taking exactly 10 years. " I was basically talking out my ass.
What I was trying to say is, it will take 10 years for the radiation to be halved, but it could take less time for humans to be able to inhabit the area again, because the radiation may have receded to a point where it is no longer dangerous.
Sorry about that.
User avatar #111 - smokingman (07/05/2014) [-]
Yeah, the consequences are pretty much the same, no Chernobyl trips for a couple of geological eras.
User avatar #112 - freakyorange (07/05/2014) [-]
Yeah. I mean, you can visit it, but only for a few hours, or maybe a day if you're brave.
User avatar #135 - assdoreponyfucker (07/05/2014) [-]
humans will probably develop some way to either kill of the uranium or even extract it, or maybe even develop new hazmat suits which are more efficient, the odds are we will find some way to make it work. Probably not in our lifetimes

I guess I'm just an idiot then. I heard that you could walk around pripyat without protection but guess I heard wrong.

Depends on what you call "propaganda". The whole book is pretty much an excuse for Heinlein to express his political views. Like many of his other books. Well, maybe I went a bit far saying that, but I was first going in expecting action and adventure in a sci-fi universe, and instead got a several hundred pages worth of lecture with some actioney bits thrown in to try and keep the reader somewhat entertained. Like so many of his other books.
User avatar #112 - themarineelite (06/27/2014) [-]
When I say Propaganda, I meant that in the book, citizens are not brainwashed into military service like they are in the movie, the option is open to them. Don't get me wrong, while the book was an excuse for Heinlein to express his Political views, the actual federation propaganda in the book is near to none.

They were trying to super satirize the book, so I heard.
User avatar #89 - renespar (06/27/2014) [-]
as far as I can remember, the movie actually was saying "yeah, this world the writer dreamt up is borderline retarded, so let's make it a blatant dig at him" which is why there's all the nazi symbolism, the outlandish amounts of propaganda, people are dumb as bricks, etc
