In Loving Memory

In honor of the 20th anniversary of the Chernobyl accident, Tim L. from Denver sends this awesome link to a set of pics and text from a former citizen of the USSR who rode her motorcycle through the Exclusion Zone and took some really fascinating pictures. Keep scrolling and hitting the next link, it's thoroughly hypnotic and a good way to understand what a nuclear accident really does to your world.

"This is the highest building in town. On the day of disaster, many people gathered on this roof to see the beautiful shining cloud above the Atomic Power Plant. "
