Crazy stuff happened in the Southern Ural Mountains. Anyone heard of these deadly lakes or nuclear accidents before? And let us know if you want us to continue with this storytime/illustration style! There is also a documentary on Netflix called 'City 40' that covers the lives of the subsequent generations living in Ozersk after the Mayak disasters - what they had to go through and what their lives are like now (at least the ones that are left). Check it out if you want to know more.

When I read the title, I somehow missed "Asia", and thought this was going to be about the lake at the bottom of the abandoned open pit uranium mine (the Midnight Mine) in Ford, Washington, in the good ol' USA. The water in the pit is contaminated, and the road leading from the mine to a mill site in Ford was also contaminated because the ore was transported in uncovered trucks. The area is now an EPA Superfund clean-up site.

This is another reason we need to go into space test this nuclear testing on asteroids or just in space away from the earth. Then we can learn and make advances to help instead of kill .

Chernobyl isn't dangerous. It's getting less dangerous. The so called Sarcophagus that is currently being built over Reactor 4, will reduce the amount of ionizing radiation that is leaving the area. There have been no deaths since the initial incident and the following days. But, why Am I even saying this? It's not gonna change anything with the Money Printing Machine that is YouTube. It's printing Money for Google. Oh wait, it doesn't need to.

I live about 70km from the nearest nuclear power plant. That power plant is called Ringhals and has 4 reactors. R1 is a boiling water reactor and the other 3 are pressurized water reactors. It has existed for 43 years and there has never been an accident that I know of.

Benjamin Slayton (14 days ago)
Hanford Nuclear Site is now a nuclear disaster, leaking deadly radioactive material into the environment. It is a disaster waiting to happen, and unfortunately, the government is not taking it seriously. Funds are not being made available to clean-up the site, or maintain it. During the development of the atomic bomb, some Americans also handled radioisotopes without proper protection. The Sovied Union is definitely not the only one to have such a lax approach to nuclear safety.

4:40 Actually handling plutonium bare handed is not risky at all. Your skin is all the protection you need for the type of radiation plutonium generates. The risk is getting plutonium inside your body. If you ingest even microscopic particles of plutonium (inhale it, eat it, or drink it) THIS is where it can make you sick. So the risk is not in handling it, it is getting it from your hands into your body. So you still really shouldn't handle the stiff bare handed. Also, plutonium is highly reactive to oxygen. a solid chunk will react with air forming an oxide layer, but shavings can actually catch fire, producing smoke. That smoke is especially dangerous.
