I found an interesting russian site about activities at Chernobyl. Latest Chernobyl news One of the most disturbing realities is that it is a popular tourist destination. People like to feed the frankenfish swimming in the local water courses. The mud is still highly radioactive, and we get to see mutation in action. The other interesting thing is they are thinking of building a shield over the blown reactor. (NB, the plant is still operational) The idea is to build the dome off site and then move it into place on rails. Sort of how the Toronto Sky dome works, only a a larger scale.
