I have always been interested in Chernobyl. I like all that apocalyptic stuff. I'm going to find some more pics and do a large post on it soon. But to whet your appetite, here is a map of the radioactive zones as they were measured in 1996. One interesting fact is that wildlife has rebounded amazingly in the Denied Zone, with species that are gone from all the surrounding areas for years thriving there. For those of you not paying attention, that means even nuclear meltdown is less harmful to the natural world than living near our cities and towns.
