Villagers near the Southern Ural mountains were scared, they were terrified. Men claiming to be from the government had appeared out of nowhere, ordering people to leave their homes.

Crazy stuff happened in the Southern Ural Mountains. Anyone heard of these deadly lakes or nuclear accidents before? And let us know if you want us to continue with this storytime/illustration style! There is also a documentary on Netflix called 'City 40' that covers the lives of the subsequent generations living in Ozersk after the Mayak disasters - what they had to go through and what their lives are like now (at least the ones that are left). Check it out if you want to know more.

good breakdown & animation . . no mention of Dr Medvedev's book which was published late 70's ? ( read it back then ). . . all those grad students doing radiological analysis, year after year in ever widening region from Mayak, repeated studies, on plants/insects/animals . . . which helped further define the EURT region.
how come they don't fill the lake with clay because clay will absorb the radiation and make it safe again, and they can just fill the whole lake with clay to seal it off for good, but no one can live there for at least 100 years because of the soil contamination

The most dangerous place on earth is still home to chernobyl. Deep in the floor under a core reactor theres a EXTREMELY radioactive liquad/substance called the elephant’s foot. This substance is extremely hot still and the most radioactive substance ever, how?.. the fucking nuclear core over heated and melted all the way down to the bottom of a car parking thingy idk 😐

Patton was absolutely correct, we should have nuked Russia too in1945. They had no nukes and no defense against them. Just think how much nicer the world be right now if we did.

Uggggg. The final stage was not when the bombs were dropped....that’s when the war in the pacific ended. We had just joined the war and had to fight hitler still....

4.4 EBq = 4,000,000,000,000,000,000 atomic reactions per second released. It takes a lot to kill you quickly, but much less to kill you slowly. I think if they took safety precautions and didn't rush, maybe we'd have nuclear energy by 2,200 AD. Now we're messing with AI and gene-sequencing which we understand even less and are equally dangerous. We gotta stop leaping all the time and start looking. 12 years till we pretty much screw the planet till we're gone, and no one seems to be interested in fixing the problem.

Every single major nuclear accident was the result of incompetence. People are afraid of nuclear power when what they should be afraid of is other people.

so radiation,death lakes, nuke waste bombs and fallout.If russia wants to self harm why waste so much money doing it .Just steal a small nuke throw it at america and they will do the rest.How is anyone in russia alive with goverments like that
daniellekingdjk3 (3 days ago)
so not only did they pollute miles and miles of their own country but on top of that they made their underground nuke dumps into ticking nuclear time bombs.This makes chernobyl look like a bit of a cough on a school trip

The good example of ridiculous lies about Soviet Union. "Missing people", mass executions, terrible GULAG and so on. Nuclear tests were held in all nuclear weapon countries. And the worst incidents took place not in USSR, but in Pacific Ocean.

The Russians more or less dried up the Aral Sea in around 40 years. Although it's called a sea in its name, it was actually an extremely large lake. If memory serves me well, it was once the 4th largest lake in the world. Googled. I'm correct. lol Russia's record on monumentally fucking up our planet has never been exemplary.

Btw, would you happen to know, the second Kyshtym disaster, after drying out and the stormwind, what date was it? If you said so, on the video, I happened to miss it.

Suppose, for arguments sake, atomic bombs had existed in an otherwise somewhat technologically backward culture. Not ideal in safety (for bombers), but still. Suppose someone had heard a rumour of this and had come up with "hey, let's use this for space travel" - also in an otherwise technologically backward culture. If he had gone ahead, what would the chances be, he would have caused sth as bad as or worse than Kyshtym disaster?

Look at ASCII values. Omit "lake" and just take names. Use capitals. None of the lakes gives either 666 or 616, nor the mean of the first two, but of all three, it is 616 1/3. K 75 070 05 0723 + Y 89 150 14 0548 = Z 90 240 14 1271 / 2 = Y 89 320 23 0635.5 L 76 390 29 T 84 470 33 A 65 530 38 S 83 610 41 H 72 680 43 723 I 73 070 03 0723 + R 82 150 05 0548 + T 84 230 09 0580 = Y 89 310 18 1847 / 3 = A 65 370 23 0616.333 S 83 450 26 H 72 520 28 548 K 75 070 05 A 65 130 10 R 82 210 12 A 65 270 17 C 67 330 24 H 72 400 26 A 65 460 31 Y 89 540 40 580
