“And I will show you something different from either, your shadow at morning striding behind you, or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust” -TS Eliot ‘The Wasteland’.
.
And from that spoiled earth with piles of fear in a handful of radioactive dust, an Amanita mushroom grows from a literal radioactive hotspot in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone near the Duga, a Soviet Missile Tracking Microwave Ground Array.
.
And yet, in this barren and grey wasteland, the silence is broken by the crack of twig from a deer’s hoof, the light blocked out from a cathedral of pine and birch trees and plants and fungus like this burst forth.
.
Life and death, bespoilment and renewal. Nature proving her mastery over even the worst of wrath that mankind has to offer.

“Ukraine announced plans to open Chernobyl, their nuclear disaster site, to tourists. They say it’s just like Disneyland, except the six foot mouse is real” -Conan O’Brien.
.
It’s #bnwwednesday !!!
.
There are no six foot mice in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. What there is is a legacy of a disaster, a heroic cleanup operation and now a large variety of native Ukrainian and Belorussian wildlife and fauna.
.
Do dangers lurk? Sure and this photo proves that. The world owes it to the Ukrainian people and indeed ourselves to continue to fund the cleanup.
.
Until then sometimes the only colour in that area is the whine of your Geiger and the amber and red of a warning sign.

The Florida Power & Light Company’s Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Station about 20 miles south of Miami has two reactors that began operating in the early 1970s. It has been slowly leaking into the ocean ever since! Now I am not trying to frighten any one. But please Google Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant Miami. There was an incident in March of this year and we all now about hurricane Irma. Yes, the company did an emergency shut down when Irma hit, but the issue is with high tritium levels in the Carribbean and radiation! In other words research this and spread the word. I want Carribbean islanders aware of this especially because most of the population there are pescetarians. I am not sure if the Fukushima water spread there yet. But that 4 decades radiated water from Florida ! Hurricane #irma . The pictures I put up are of Fukushima fish caught in the Pacific  a few years ago and not Carribbean fish. But don't be surprised if you see deformed fish that look like that. And just to let everyone know 300-400 Chelonian sea turtles have been found off the coast of San Salvador.

Yesterday's a dream, but it always brought us a good and happy memories.😊 I can't contain my joy because we're able to escape the room with 6 minutes left on the clock. Even though we didn't beat the fastest time in the record, what matters is how well you spent your day with special people around you.😊 Nothing that I will going to compare with the joy I've felt and the memories that will going to last for a lifetime; even yesterday's gonna be a sad goodbye.😥 Today will going to an end, the fact itself saddens me. But there's always a brand new tomorrow that will always reminds us that there's always a brand new way to start and to live by.😊 Thank you for the great memories my friends, and let's create more in the future!😊

11/10〜12で福島県モニターツアーに参加してきました。
美しい自然や町が見られた反面まだまだ原発事故の爪痕も残っていました。
様々な立場の人からのお話を聞き、一女生との合同グループで何度もWSを行い、1票差で惜しかったもののいい共同コメントが作成できて、ハードながら有意義な時間を過ごせました。

Menurut Badan Tenaga Nuklir Nasional (BATAN) ada sekitar 210.000-280.000 ton thorium yang tersimpan di bumi Indonesia yang tersebar di Pulau Bangka, Kalimantan Barat, Kalimantan Tengah, dan Sulawesi Barat. Hal ini menjadikan Indonesia sebagai salah satu negara yang  berpotensi besar dalam pengembangan dan penelitian PLTT (Pembangkit Listrik Tenaga Torium) sebagaimana telah dilakukan oleh beberapa ilmuwan & peneliti kita untuk menciptakan alternatif bahan bakar pembangkit nuklir yang lebih aman dari Uranium.

Lalu apa sih sebenarnya Thorium itu? Mengapa Thorium dikatakan lebih aman dari Uranium? Dan mengapa hingga saat ini sebagian besar pembangkit nuklir yang ada di dunia masih menggunakan Uranium?

“I play a piano of words - its icy tinkle echoes through the halls” -John Geddes.
.
At the Palace of Culture in Pripyat still stands a grand piano, waiting silently, hauntingly to be played. I sat and stroked the ivories that remain and only managed to eke out a single note.
.
I wonder, in the dead of night, if the ghost of notes from forgotten tunes of Stravinsky, Borodin or Horowitz echo through the hall and down the entrance corridor.
.
Perhaps if we tilt our heads just right we can hear it amongst the leaves that now rustle in the open breezes that blow through the long empty building.

“If there is one thing the history of evolution has taught us it’s that life will not be contained. Life breaks free, it expands to new territories and crashes through barriers, painfully...I’m simply saying that life, uh...finds a way” -Dr. Ian Malcolm, Jurassic Park.
.
Nature is returning to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in abundance. There are wolves, wild horses, wild dogs, squirrels, migratory birds and an a wide assortment of trees and plants which are returning the land to a wildness. This photo is of an Ukrainian Fox - she was healthy and vibrant.
.
Where there were wide boulevards with tarmac’d roads, sidewalks and concrete plazas there are now forests and bushes and burrowing animals.
.
Even when our Geiger counters whined their eerie song I saw deer off of the side of the road standing in the forest.
.
Nature is doing what mankind could not. It is cleansing a poisoned land and taking it back and reclaiming it for its own.
.
Life. Finds. A. Way.

Today the new sarcophagus is in place above Chernobyl Reactor 4 and its melted core. There are over 1,000 workers and their support to help monitor, maintain and continue to dismantle and clean the contaminated reactor.
.
We stood only a few hundred metres from this massive steel and lead structure. It is taller than the Statue of Liberty and longer than the Eiffel Tower. .
It is by and large as safe as most places in a world already poisoned so much by mankind. There are certainly areas within the Zone that one would be foolish bordering on suicidal to wander about.
.
We would do well to remember this place, Chernobyl and Pripyat. We mustn’t let the lessons of man’s hubris pass unlearned from. Because whilst the power we are capable of discovering is unfathomable and wondrous; it is also earth shattering and destructive.
.
Tomorrow is my last post in this series and I will end it on a positive note.

Simi Valley Friday Fail and Flash Back Friday all in one.
Simi Valley's Dirty Little Secret.
In 1959 Rockeydyne had the WORST NUCLEAR MELTDOWN in the Nation's History.
NOTE how this Reporter was Reporting from Chatsworth.
So this is our Friday Fail !

“Show me a fantasy novel about Chernobyl - there isn’t one! Because reality remains more fantastic” -Svetlana Alexievich, Voices from Chernobyl.
.
It’s been 31 years now since Reactor 4 spewed radiation around the globe, poisoned an area of 30km around it for 10,000 years (they don’t really know).
.
The “liquidators” did their jobs well. Pripyat’s radiation in most places now is no more dangerous than anywhere else on earth varying from .20 to .50 millisieverts. One receives a greater dose of radiation from flying in a plane.
.
But there are exceptions, in the basement of the hospital there are clothes discarded by the Liquidators that spike into the thousands which would be disastrous for an unsuspecting tourist to touch. The “Red Forest” outside the reactor is littered with places that made our Gieger counters scream and whine with a haunting cacophony of song.
.
The trees you see here are all natural invaders. They did not exist in this area 31 years ago. But life is reclaiming this area at a much greater rate than science predicted. Mother Earth is cleansing herself.
.

“With something like Chernobyl, the public reaction was Oh, my God, science has really done wrong” -George Smoot.
.
It is very popular to put our faith in process, workflows and science. We assume because it is tested over and over and over again that it simply will not go wrong.
.
Over 500,000 people from across the Soviet Union participated in the cleanup of the fallout and contaminated soil across the 30km exclusion zone. They were called “The liquidators” and they fought against an invisible enemy and although their deaths are not recognised in the official counts many received doses of radiation never before experienced by humans before or after the accident.
.
They are heroes. And the world entire owes a debt to them.

Day 24
🎃
It occurs to me that my hometown has something that not many people see everyday. Living near a power plant all my life, i guess it's easy to let it fade into the background...until you remember you can't drink the water if you live too close, there's literally an entire neighborhood abandoned years ago because of the radiation...and, I suppose you could say the looming possibility of a nuclear meltdown just miles away from where you sleep could be considered a bit scary. 
So, there's that. 🎃
Stay spooky, my friends

“In the crucial first ten days, when the reactor core was burning and releasing a steady stream of highly radioactive material into the surrounding areas, the authorities repeatedly claimed that the situation was under control. . . In the week after the accident, while refusing to admit to the world that anything really serious had gone wrong, the Soviets poured thousands of men into the breach. . . The machines they brought broke down because of the radiation. The humans wouldn't break down until weeks or months later, at which point they'd die horribly” -Svetlana Alexievich, Voices of Chernobyl.
.
It was April 26th when Chernobyl Reactor 4 violently exploded spewing 40 times the amount of radiation dropped on both Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The May Day festivities were being set up and a fairground was set up. Little did they know that these things would stay for 31 years and become symbolic of the disaster.
.
The first responders were 27 firemen who, because they had never been taught otherwise, poured water on the molten core, almost inadvertently setting off a chain reaction which would have had an explosion equivalent of a 40 megaton bomb rendering all of Europe uninhabitable. All 27 would die from the lethal dose of radiation exposure they suffered.

The humans wouldn't break down until weeks or months later, at which point they'd die horribly” -Svetlana Alexievich, Voices of Chernobyl. . It was April 26th when Chernobyl Reactor 4 violently exploded spewing 40 times the amount of radiation dropped on both Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The May Day festivities were being set up and a fairground was set up. Little did they know that these things would stay for 31 years and become symbolic of the disaster. . The first responders were 27 firemen who, because they had never been taught otherwise, poured water on the molten core, almost inadvertently setting off a chain reaction which would have had an explosion equivalent of a 40 megaton bomb rendering all of Europe uninhabitable. All 27 would die from the lethal dose of radiation exposure they suffered. . . . . . . #chernobyl  #pripyat  #sovietunion  #ukraine  #nucleardisaster  #reactor4  #radiation  #radioactive  #igersukraine  #igersscotland  #properadventure  #1986  #chernobyldisaster  #nuclearmeltdown  #soloeastchernobyltour  #soloeasttravel  #alexanderakimov  #mural  #disaster  #ferriswheel  #chernobylfacts

“I didn’t have time to think ‘This is my mortality, this is my end. I thought only on the saving of Chernobyl Reactor and of my crew’ -Alexander Akimov, Chief Night Operator, Chernobyl Reactor 4.
.
This mural, painted in Cooling Tower 2 which directly supported Chernobyl Reactor 4, is of the Chief Night Operator quoted above who was that night in charge of the experiment that led to the worst man made disaster in history.
.
It would eventually lead indirectly to the collapse of the Soviet Union, the dispelling of the myth of Soviet Scientific supremacy and would expose the incredible dangers of nuclear power.
.
Alexander Akimov died on the 11th of May 1986, his body riddled with radiation poisoning. He would initially be blamed for the disaster.

We made it out of the Nuclear Meltdown escape room with a little under 7 minutes to spare!! #wedidit #escaperoom #baffledescaperooms #nuclearmeltdown #travelingdelumpas2017 #deezysinaz #fridate #doubledate
There are several fires in the submarine! 🆘 #boardgames #lautapeli #rednovember #drunkengnomes #missilestrikes #nuclearmeltdown
“The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter” -Revelation 8:10.
.
There is an actual belief that the above bible verse was a prophesy of the Chernobyl disaster.
.
Today, I visited Chernobyl, Reactor 4 and the largest abandoned city in the world Pripyat. Over the next few days I hope to share with you why it is so incredibly important we remember this disaster and never forget the lessons it taught us.

Seriously? 
Nikita Khrushchev heeft al een paar jaar een tuin op z'n buik hoor! "[...] in de nabijheid van de onderzoeksreactor te Mol." Dat ding is zo groot als een oude schoenendoos! 
Then again; Het heeft waarschijnlijk ook de bouwkundige staat van een oude schoenendoos.. #coldwarrevival #potassiumiodide #kaliumjodide #jodiumtabletten #nuclearmeltdown #pffff
"Chernobyl is like the war of all wars. There's nowhere to hide." I can't think of a more frightening book to read for the month of October. Especially in this current climate. Svetlana Alexievich is a journalist who spoke to hundreds of people, from residents of Pripyat to first responders to government officials, and then tied their stories into this book. It's all at once a cautionary tale, as well as a horrifying conglomeration of heartbreak, fear and anger of life in a toxic world; tied together by a leaking reactor sarcophagus known as the Cover. Want bonechilling? Terrifying? Something that will keep you awake at night? Here you go. .

ADAM BOMB

Real Name: Bryan Clark

Fed: WWF

Active Years: 1993 - 1995

Symptoms of extreme radiation poisoning, according to WWF:

1. Green eyes (must wear goggles to protect self and others)
2. Red tongue
3. Meanness… like a lot of it
4. Slightly above average strength

Vince really nailed the science behind this gimmick. I’ve seen documentaries about Three Mile Island. This is spot on.

A hanging gasmask in #chernobyl . They were so worried about their nemesis across the Atlantic that they didnt see the one in their backyard. #neveragain #instagood #travel #chernobyl #чернобыль  #rememberalways #nuclearmeltdown #gasmask

#sarateasdale #pripyat #ukraine #nuclearmeltdown #abandonedcity  There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground, 
and swallows circling with their shimmering sound; 
And frogs in the pools singing at night, and wild plum trees in tremulous white, 
Robins will wear their feathery fire whistling their whims on a low fence-wire; 
And not one will know of the war, 
not one will care at last when it is done. 
Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree If mankind perished utterly; 
And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn, 
would scarcely know that we were gone. -By Sara Teasdale, 1884 - 1933 -

Can't believe we actually escaped 😂😂 #NuclearMeltdown #nailedit #BaldonWayOrNoWay
Somebody is going to be really surprised tonight... when @i_am_duane walks in the door.
Six days from now, when he walks in with @annaezimmerman ...? #nuclearmeltdown

Nuclear Shields designed the 'RAPTOR' Shielded Excavator as a fast-response nuclear emergency vehicle. It is capable of cleaning up radiation contaminated areas outside of the reactor buildings to secure the area. When the area is safe, a shielded enclosure can be placed around the reactor building.

New music time: My score for the @clothmap mini-doc "Chernobyl: Two Days in the Exclusion Zone" is out! Chernobyl is such a bizarre place, and this mixture of beauty, strangeness and tragedy felt like my sweet spot.  A total blast to work on, especially considering how jaw-dropping it was to watch this landscape decay and be overtaken by nature.

You can watch the entire video (for free) and purchase the album at the link in my bio. Also visit Cloth Map to learn more about the killer travel videos produced by @drewscanlon.

#ny #newyorkcity #earthquake #indianpoint #wearenotprepared! #nuclearmeltdown what is scary is Indian point could have melt down which means entire NYC would have to be evacuated costing trillions
I had this incorrectly captioned before! This is one of the corridors in the high school in Pripyat, the (now abandoned) village built for the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear plant. •

Just finished up a score for the new @clothmap travel doc about #Chernobyl. Amazing work by @drewscanlon exploring this bleak and devastated part of the world. He came back with some wild footage and fascinating insights that made this a blast to score. Check it out on the Cloth Map YouTube page or georgehurd.com. Stay tuned for the soundtrack release as well, filled to the brim with strings, synths and vintage organs.
