Chernobyl was a terrible accident indeed, but it's a shame that humanities irrational response was a negative view of nuclear power. Chernobyl results from an experiment conducted with pure lack of ethics and safety. It's not a sign of the inherent evil

With Chernobyl, the "test" was seeing how the reactor would respond to removing all water and cooling systems, and so the reactor wasn't being cooled at all. Communism wasn't at fault, the idiots were. Furthermore, a nuclear meltdown isn't an explosio
April 26th, 2006
(0)
who said meltdown? Chernobyl was no meltdown. Three Mile island was. Communisim is one of the many factors. You have to remember that little bits of the accident were planted when the reactor was being constructed. Excuses were not tolorated.

same as gas being more expensive due to strange "environmental" laws that were pushed through because of senators wanting reelection. If you have a problem with how energy works, let the people who do it for a living have a shot at making it better
April 27th, 2006

The experiment had nothing to do with cooling systems! If the reactor has no outside power, it cannot run, and the cooling systems would stop, causing the reactor to overheat and people not having fun.
April 27th, 2006
(0)
The test would determine whether the turbines could create enough energy while spinning on its own inertia in order to keep the pumps going and prevent an accident.
April 27th, 2006

The automatic emergency cooling system was disconnected so that it would not interfere with the experiment. The experiment was NOT to test the cooling systems.

Jimiisama wow you know your stuff. I was thinking of making a YTMND about the 8 days after the accident and how they put out the fire. It gets kinda boring there. Bryukhanov and Fomin f*ck up big time assuming the reactor is intact.

I was born in Belarus. Specifically, in the part of Belarus which was greatly affected; the city called 'Gomel'.

I left to immigrate to the United States with my family because of this, but I will NEVER forget the victims of this terrible accident. May they rest in peace, and may the rest of the

WTF?! The information in this YTMND is completely wrong! Only about 40 people have died since the incident as a direct result of the radiation, and nobody involved in the accident was exposed to more than 500 millisieverts of radiation but on average those at Hiroshima and Nagasaki recieved 2000 millisieverts. This is just f*cking propaganda bullsh*t.

The truth of death toll and number of people affected lies between IAEA's numbers and Greenpeace numbers. Both sides have reason to exaggerate the effects. IAEA to lesson the impact. Greenpeace to increase the inpact. Both cannot be trusted. After reading information form BBC Two Horizon documentary, it sounds more like they are endorsing IAEA's results.

I don't see the need for everything to be funny. At the very least it should be interesting, and this was. Regardless, "WTF Russia?" got a laugh out of me. I wish you would fix the typos though.

To the people who said that this site is for humor, there are no rules saying that there can't be serious YTMNDs. Honestly I think there should be more of these.

Interseting YTMND. I pity Ukraine and Belarus. (Google Earth will not locate Pripyat, BTW.) While the incident sucks, you should note that nature is doing OK there. (Google the photos of "KidofSpeed." While her "tour" is fake, the photos aren't.) I have been facinated by the Chernobyl Reactor 4 incident since 1986. Also, Hans Zimmer kicks ass. Stronium and Graphite radiation suck, but the health affects are not as sh*tty as the WHO says. Great YTMND.

Propaganda or not, it still happened, they still died. Personally, i dont really care who's fault it was, as long as we know better to make sure it doesnt happen again in (say) a larger populated area.

The problem was caused by how the reactor was built, it was built to prevent accidents, and not stop them while they were occuring. BWR's PWR's and PHWR's all have many layers of redundant accident prevention systems as well as systems that correct and deal with a LOCA (loss of cooling accident) should it happen. (such as the vacuum building and the emergency coolant injection systems featured on all CANDU reactors)

I don't want to vote on this, but was wondering what was flashed really quickly. It was there for like 2 seconds. Also, people who downvoted this because it isn't "teh funny" are retarded.

Don't think it changed the world, much at all. Also, it takes a very narrow view on the disaster--COMMUNISM caused it?

Time to f*ck up some downvoters. Firstly, if you think people dieing slowly due to cancer because of radiation is funny, you're some really sick f*cks. Secondly, YTMND is NOT, and I repeat for the twenty ninth time, NOT just funny sites. If you don't like educational videos, don't vote. Thirdly, communism was ONE part of the multi-part reason behind this explosion, not the only one. He even said that in the video.

Dyatlov lived 12 more years after the accident. He was previously a sub captian and had been exposed to high doses of radiation that should have killed him before. The fact is that the younger the person is, the more negitive effect radiation has on them. Dyatlov died in jail, still proclaiming he did everything as he should have. In some ways he is right, he did not know how unstable the reactor gets at low output.
