Chernobyl power station monument. Monument dedicated to the builders of the sarcophagus that was built over the blasted Unit 4 reactor of the Chernobyl nuclear plant, Ukraine. On the 26th April 1986 the plant exploded causing huge amounts of radiation to enter the atmosphere. It is considered the worst nuclear power plant disaster in history. Thousands of workers were involved in the clean-up, many of whom suffered the effects from exposure to radiation. A sacrophagus surrounding the reactor was erected by December 1986. Photographed in 2008.
