    Great use of words.

    "the silence is deafening" and so forth.

    Shame about the actual story behind it though. Glowing trees? Jeez!

    Alright, alright - who here actually read the whole article - and who just looked at the pictures?

    I think the worst bit about it has gotta be how the government never told the fire crews what they were dealing with, those guys wandered in to their deaths

    Just read the whole thing.

    Possibly one of the most interesting things I have ever read - fascinating.

    Anyone else really hyped up about S.T.A.L.K.E.R now?

    Something that I'm extreemly interested in is the Chenobyl disaster, ever since seeing a video on it in Secondary school. I've read alot about it although not come across this before - it is truly an amazing read and some briliant photos. I would love to see it although going there even though she showed safe readings for small exposure times its still very dangerous. Also I think that was taken over several trips

    That girl has alot of guts and would love to see what its really like. Galant - yes I read the whole thing

    Shes a bit of a legend among the bikers and on the Biking sites. It's without a doubt one of the best accounts of Chernobyl you can read.
