Publisher's Summary

Chernobyl: This is a word almost everyone all over the world has heard before. Even if people don’t know what it is, or what it means, they would have already heard it at least once in their lifetime. The infamy of Chernobyl comes from the horrific event that occurred within its walls. And this is what we will be talking about in this audiobook.

Chernobyl is the name of a nuclear power plant located in Ukraine. On April 26, 1986, Chernobyl also happened to be the site of a terrifying and life-changing nuclear accident. The disaster took place after a routine test - that was done at the nuclear power plant - went wrong. Then two huge explosions blew the roof off one of the reactors despite it weighing 1,000 tons. When this happened, a huge amount of radiation was released into the air unbeknownst to the citizens of the neighboring areas. The Chernobyl disaster was the worst nuclear event in history, which killed a lot of people and compromised the health of even more people. This disaster highlighted the potential danger of nuclear power, stoking the existing fears of the public.

Aside from this, it also revealed how the Soviet government tried to hide the truth from the Soviet people and from the rest of the world. The nuclear disaster and the aftermath that followed resulted in billions spent on cleanup efforts and the loss of one of the country’s primary energy sources. It even dealt a huge blow to the nation’s pride. Later, Mikhail Gorbachev, the Soviet leader at that time, said that he thought the meltdown might have been the real reason behind the Soviet Union’s collapse, which happened five years after the accident. The Chernobyl nuclear power plant is located in the northern part of Ukraine. A couple of miles from the plant, they constructed a small town called Pripyat, which was meant to accommodate the workers of the plant along with their families.
