Why can't you leave at night? To stop would be adventurers from wandering into the contaminated site?

It seems to ruin the whole landscape, and ruin a historical monument.

Uhm, for whom do you wanna save that "landscape"?

No one is living there, and is exposing the "historic momunent" worth the risks it has to the enviroment?

This is still a dangerous place, and the new confiment is urgently needed.

It's for safety, it's not optional. This thing MUST be build to prevent radioactive air escaping the facility. But if you want to care more about the 'fantastic' landscape instead if millions of lives, be my guest

There is a live webcam up on the ChNPP website. It'll be very interesting to watch during the first lift.

Weekly update from ChNPP. From now on I'll post thumbnails not to overload the page, but click on them to get them full res, or go directly to the ChNPP gallery.

You'll notice that they started assembling the lifting equipment at the top of the lifting towers. It should come as no surprise that Mammoet has been chosen to do this job, since they're most likely the only ones in the world than can pull it off. They'll also be in charge of moving the arch once completed, and there's a wonderful video to explain it very accurately.

The best plan of action would be to launch all of this radioactive waste at Chernobyl into space and be done with it.

Highly interesting! Does anybody know what material is used to cover up the radiation? I doubt they'll pump concrete into the dome.
