I came across this story earlier this morning and just now started watching videos and reading additional articles about this "arch" in Chernobyl; I found it fascinating myself.

Watched this as well. Still get a shudder thinking about it. I will never forget watching the satellite pictures of the "cloud" heading for Berlin and listening to the official announcements on the radio to stay in doors and everybody hoping that it didn't rain.

 I recall our regimental NBC team deploying as the "cloud" neared Fulda. Fallout still gets dug up by wild pigs in the Bavarian Forest.

It is an impressive structure, I was lucky enough to be able to have a look upfront last time I was out there. Hopefully it'll sort the issues with the current concrete cover, which is cracking up. The entire area is a fascinating place, one of the most interesting things is really to see how well the nature has coped with the fallout; no masses of zombie-wolves roaming around.
