    "500-3000 microroengen per hour", I guess the SI scale is out of the question. If this means in the same range as 500-300 becquerel, then it is not very healthy to stay there for a longer exposed time. (background radiation is approx. 15 becquerel).

    She`s one brave girl. I would be very worried about the air I breathe, plus I`m surprise she`s out there with no helmet on.

    I can just imagine the Hollywood movies out of that town...

    I can`t believe that the sarcophagus has not been replaced yet.

    I remember seeing a PBS show on it 10-15 years ago. It need to be replaced back then...

    "The patch of trees in front of me is called red - or `magic" wood. In 1986, this wood glowed red with radiation."

    ahhhhhhhhh Im really creeped out by this website. AWESOME!!! It would be really sweet to visit ghost town, only ...I am a wuss when it comes to radiation shyte so Id have to pass if the invitation ever came up.

    Rested you`re saying you lived in Chernobyl?

    I was surprised by the fact that the state kept the whole disaster a secret for 10 days. I learned a lot from this link, thanks buddy.
