Chernobyl/Pripyat City - Nuclear Reactors / Radiation Testing
Nuclear Reactors / Radiation Testing (Chernobyl, Ukraine)
This set of images include the Chernobyl nuclear reactors and various radiation testing that we monitored across Pripyat and Chernobyl. Radiation has a relationship between actual exposure level and exposure time. Typically, normal background radiation is around 3 millisieverts per year. At some points around reactor #4, we were reading 3.94 millisieverts per hour. For each hour that went by, we would be exposed to 1 years worth of radiation – we took some quick photos and moved on.
