It was terrible! One of my dad's childhood friends died a week after the disaster.

He was in the turbine room when the reactor exploded; died of lung cancer due to the massive radiation he was exposed to

They did it different this time, they didn't attach the next sections to the sides first. Any idea why?

They also did that last time (third lift of the first half) because there previously has been problems with the "slidding" supports that handles the lateral move of the extra sections. So from now on, every lift will be done that way.

Why wait for the disaster till it finally happen to you? Its time to find some alternatives for the nuclear power. Yes indeed it is a prominent source of energy, but the production risk should be a matter of concern

On the first picture, you can see the new method used to move lifting towers. Basically, they use the hook of the crawler to pull the tower.

Yes, this video clearly explains the construction process. This other video gives more detail about the lifting/skidding operations.

The original sarcophagus was built with minimal regards to workers' safety since the situation required the quickest possible response. This is not the case for the NSC, and all precautions are taken to ensure the safety of workers.
