    Seems all these people are having fun making somewhat of a mockery of what happened there. So much consequence occurred to due such negligence. That site will remain truly uninhabitable for many, many years. It could have been much much worse had it not been for the people that sacrificed and suffered for the good of mankind. Visiting Chernobyl and Pripyat/Kiev is fine. Go there to learn, to see, to feel what happened. To appreciate all that has transpired and been learned. " and say 'radiation'!" Disgraceful.

    And the series have made also many errors and made things look in another way which have made allot of people mad

    Only two Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant workers were killed. Ground clearance has taken 29 more lives. Long term casualties are propaganda war tools. That is "the worst nuclear disaster" and now let's see Hiroshima, Nagasaki or Fukushima.
    And Chernobyl is in UKRAINE, same people lived there 30 years ago, during USSR, UKRAINIANS. Yes, there were some Russians, to but there were some Lithuanians, Georgians, Belorussians, Estonians .... too. It is very easy to sell shi*y propaganda to inbred Americans.

    Important that we take a fact and data-oriented, educational approach to nuclear energy _today_ and in future contexts. Because now, when properly managed, with modern reactors, it's the safest and cleanest and most environmentally sound energy source wr have. That includes solar, wind and hydro in the equation.
    And there's just no safe future without it in the mix.
    We really should be working harder towards thorium molten salt reactors though.

    WTF,what is wrong with those people ? Don't they know that Chernobyl is still a great danger to the society and to Earth,not to mention that it is a bit rude to go there and have some photos or to have some fun there.A lot of people had died and many of them were evacuated and in doing this they lost everything they had.Excuse me if you think that I'm rude or that I'm overreacting but I found it stupid to visit Chernobyl just to see better what has happend there or to take a picture just to show off or to have some fun. If you're so interested about what happend to Chernobyl than why don't you visit other danger zone places like: Ilha da Queimada Granda aka Snake Island,Lascaux Caves in France,North Sentinen Island in India or even Area 51 !

I'm fine with them going up, as long as they do it on their own & they haven't hired a team of Shirpas to carry their glamping equipment for them, risking the lives of others just because they wanna tick something off their bucket lists. The middle classes. More money than sense, it seems.

    It's not that terrible to go there. You just can't stay there for long. Don't go on a second trip.
    And if you want to minimize radiation, go in the late winter, preferably when there's lots of snow. Snow covers most of the radiated ground which will minimize your exposure. Stay safe.

      Pripyat town is only 3km away from Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, whilst Chernobyl town is actually 15km from the plant and was never fully abandoned (few hundreds of people decided to stay there even after the disaster).
      "Pripyat" was a new town built in 1970 for the plant's workers and their families and was quite big: 50k people.
      Whilst "Chernobyl" is just an old Ukrainian town (900 years old).

    I am an American living in Latvia just 700 or so miles northwest of Chernobyl and I have found the experience soul searching.
    What fascinates me is the tightrope balance between Truth and lies and what kind of truth (mixed lies) were told to the public - click to read more

    From time code 56 minutes of HBO episode 5 the following...

    FOOD for Thought....

    ... because of our secrets and our lies they are practically what define us ... when the truth offends, we lie and lie until we can no longer remember that it is even there but it is still there. Every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth and sooner or later that debt is paid.

    Other POWERFUL words: In 2006, Mikhail Gorbachev wrote that the nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl ... "was perhaps the true cause of the collapse of the Soviet Union"

    What also worries me is the parallel with what happened in the Soviet Union in 1986 and what is happening in Washington DC now.

    • Balnazzardi
      Balnazzardi 2 місяці тому

      perhaps in terms of its main characters, how they acted where they were and some excaggarted stuff, but overall it was still very much based on real events.....something like STALKER games is 100% actual fiction only based on real historical events/landscape but HBO's series is much more close to reality, although ofc its not documentary and took liberties in order for the storytelling in drama series to work.

    This is beyond idiotic! All it takes is a SINGLE genetic mutation due to radiation exposure making it past all your body's safety mechanisms to initiate cancer. OR, think of any woman who is pregnant going into the more irradiated zones. The mutations that child is more likely to express due to the radiation.
    My parents were in Germany when the Chernobyl incident happened. My mom was in the later stages of her pregnancy when it happened. My eldest brother was born legally blind because of the fallout. Other women who were in the early stages of their pregnancy gave birth to children who would later die. My mom told me stories of how the army would send her and other mothers back to the states so their babies could receive medical care. Many of those moms knew their child would later die, but my mom made sure they gave their kids all the love amd comfort they could before that happened.
    The trivialization of what happened it beyond disrespectful.

      I would gladly go there if only I had the money. Honestly there is no freaking risk, the background radiation levels in Pripyat are only 2 to 10 times more higher than normal, which is nothing. You could even basicly live there these days, the only places you could not live is where the fallout hit the hardest like the Red Forest zone.
