Video by the EBRD with some very nice footage, including the lowering of a tilting panel.

Breathtaking pictures from under the NSC, by Vladimir Gerasimov.

Pretty irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.

Correcting (or at least attempting to) one of mankind's greatest mistakes is a priceless commodity.

Before/after, from the most iconic point of view.

Sorry for my ignorance, I guess this question has already answered millions of times, but:

Is not it necessary to cover the rest of the center?
Is not it dangerous to be inside the sarcophagus?
What will happen with the rest of the plant from now on, some other work?

Thank you.

Thank you.

Questions are always welcome here.

1. I believe the rest of the Chernobyl building is sealed off from the damaged reactor. Priority was to cover the damaged reactor and protect the existing structure from further decay and possible catastrophic collapse.

2. Sure it is. I read that the majority of the fuel is still inside. And it's still very "hot" and will be so for a very long time.

3. There is still a lot of work to properly seal the NSC. The technical buildings continue to be worked on. In the future work will begin to dismantle the unit, but that will cost a lot of money and technology that does not yet exist. They have 100 years or so

The images are breathtaking. Never imagined seeing this in my lifetime. It would be interesting if they installed a web camera inside so we could see what's going on in there I'm really going to miss the ones I have been watching for all these years.

Three questions please:

1. I read a lot of time in all types of forum but never I trouble the answer. What is inside the reactor? I heard that the radioactive parts were all cooled down and in solid form. As an example we have the "elephant's foot", but never I understand what the hell is there inside.

2. The NCS will have holes like the first sarcophagus or do they have to cover everyone?

3. Is not dangerous quit the first sarcophagus? Because in its interior there is still much radiation and something contains it.


Thank you very much!

1. I would say corium, which is basically a mixture of the nuclear fuel and everything it came in contact with during the melt down. Then you also would have debris from the building and so on.

2. NSC will seal everything off from the environment. So no holes that I'm aware of.

3. It will be much safer contained under the NSC. The old sarcophagus will be protected from the elements.

Indeed, there's a big concrete wall inside the building between units 3 and 4. That means that with the NSC, the unit 4 now is fully sealed.

ChNPP actually published an article yesterday about that. Here's a very rough Google translation.

Quote:
Today, inside the object "Shelter" is:
- 1300 tons of fuel masses
- About 2,000 tons of combustible materials
- about 200 tons of nuclear fuel (uranium on)
- 43 000 cubic meters. meters of high level waste (HLW)
- 63 0000 cubic meters. meters of radioactive waste (RW)
- 4 tons of radioactive dust.
And a picture from Sergey Koshelev.

Thanks!!

I have other question... Inside the 4 unit... Is there still high temperatures in their depths, or has everything cooled and mixed in the form of corium?

Amazing engineering stuff by Mammoet to move such a large structure.

There had better be a documentary about this structure when it's completed.
