chernobyl dying ship

These ships were abandoned over twenty years ago. Their owners left them to die after the Chernobyl disaster due to their high levels of radiation. One of the great ironies of the this particular tragedy is that many animals and trees are now doing considerably better in the Chernobyl region, than when the humans were there.

  • the hanford nuclear reservation in washington state, u.s.a. is in a similar situation. since the area is off limits to what would be normal human traffic, it has become a de facto nature preserve. i've seen more wildlife on an hour boat trip through the hanford reach than i have in a lifetime lived only four hours away.
