Chernobyl’s HUGE radiation shield – a giant radiation cap

Chernobyl catches every bodies imagination in different ways, we see endless drone footage of what it looks like when humans leave an area after a certain amount of time, yet the the sheer devastation caused by a nuclear meltdown is the nightmare that trumps it all.

There are movies about radioactive zombies and countless mentions in other forms of fiction, yet I can’t help but think the below footage of this enormous cap is something out of independence day or some other world ending movie.

The cost so far is $1.6 Billion US dollars and it is financed by about 30 countries, most money comes from the sates. The Chernobyl arch has been designed to last 100 years. Yet watching the video one can’t but wonder about the health of the workers.
