Pictures speak for themselves. 3 sheet/6 page text in English related to this book laid in. This work marked the tenth anniversary of the explosion at Chornobyl Nuclear Power Plant Unit-4. The environmental impact was significant and is still being evaluated. P. Pokutny is quoted in the book as writing : The book contains a lot of pictures. They tell in silence.the truth as to elucidate the burning topic---nuclear disaster clean-up." The Chernobyl disaster, also referred to as the Chernobyl accident, was a catastrophic nuclear accident. It occurred on 25-26 April 1986 in the No. 4 light water graphite moderated reactor at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant near the now-abandoned town of Pripyat, in northern Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, Soviet Union, approximately 104 km (65 mi) north of Kiev. The event occurred during a late-night safety test which simulated a station blackout power-failure, in the course of which safety systems were intentionally turned off. A combination of inherent reactor design flaws and the reactor operators arranging the core in a manner contrary to the checklist for the test, eventually resulted in uncontrolled reaction conditions. Water flashed into steam generating a destructive steam explosion and a subsequent open-air graphite fire. This fire produced considerable updrafts. These lofted plumes of fission products into the atmosphere. The estimated radioactive inventory that was released during this very hot fire phase approximately equaled in magnitude the airborne fission products released in the initial destructive explosion. This radioactive material precipitated onto parts of the western USSR and Europe. Ukrainian Edition, Presumed first edition/first printing thus. Bookseller Inventory # 75181
