About containment immediately after the accident, with an addendum about the state of the site 20 years after. Consider these numbers:
500'000 people sent from all over the Soviet Union to clean up for extremely short periods of time. In your country would you have been sent? Would you have gone or taken the first plane for a long holiday in Australia? Maybe watch some more torrents from there?
The sarcophagus contains 100 kg of plutonium. That's 100 million lethal and reusable doses.
The half-life of plutonium is 245'000 years. To put that in perspective: The last glacial period is estimated to have been between 70000-15000 years ago.
"Long live" the nuclear renaissance!
