Ever wondered what it would be like to fly a drone through one of the few untouched place on Earth.
On 26 April 1986 Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the city of Pripyat, located in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic of the Soviet Union (USSR) suffered a catastrophic melt down.. An explosion and fire poured radioactive particles into the atmosphere. Radiation spilled out over much of the western USSR and Europe.
The Chernobyl disaster was the worst nuclear power plant accident in history in terms of casualties and cost. Along with the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in Japan in 2011, Chernobyl is one of only two classified as a level 7 event (the maximum classification) on the International Nuclear Event Scale. The struggle to contain the contamination and avert a greater catastrophe ultimately involved over 500,000 workers and cost an estimated 18 billion rubles. 31 people were confirmed dead directly from the disaster, however, and long-term effects such as cancers are still being investigated.
