Signage from Chernobyl
HBO recently aired Chernobyl, a miniseries on the 1986 nuclear disaster at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. The accident took place near Pripyat, a city in what is now northern Ukraine. Pripyat, which had nearly 50,000 inhabitants in 1986, was evacuated shortly after the accident. Clean-up and decommission work continues to this day, though radiation levels have dropped enough to permit tourism to certain parts of the city.
