Radioactive vehicle graveyard near Chernobyl


National Geographic has this photo of a “cemetery of radioactive vehicles” near Chernobyl in the Ukraine. From the blurb:

  • More than 1,300 Soviet military helicopters, buses, bulldozers, and other equipment were used—and contaminated—while responding to the April 26, 1986 nuclear accident at Chernobyl.
  • A hundred times more radiation was released during the meltdown of Chernobyl’s reactor than was contained in the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
