This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile3270/Tchernoby-Power-Plant,-Ukraine.htm>Tchernoby Power Plant, Ukraine</a></b><br><br>The Chernobyl accident occurred on April 26, 1986, at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine (then part of the Soviet Union). It is regarded as the worst nuclear accident in the history of nuclear power, producing a plume of radioactive debris that drifted over parts of the western Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, UK, and eastern USA. Large areas of Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia were badly contaminated, resulting in the evacuation and resettlement of roughly 200,000 people. About 60% of radioactive fallout landed in Belarus.<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/164536Powerplant.jpg>

Chernobyl is not the world worst nuclear accident.
Kept decades as secret were the accidents in Mayak (Russia) which were nearly two times bigger than the one in Chernobyl.


(Had no the time yet to look for Mayak in GoogleEarth.)

the mod who approved this when there is already a duplicate must have made a minor mistake I'm shure a MOD will fix this right away.
