Chernobyl Images

This is one of the strangest and most disturbing things I've seen on the Internet: KIDDofSPEED – GHOST TOWN - Chernobyl Images. The daughter of a scientist who does testing in the devastated Chernobyl area has wangled a permit that allows her to ride her motorcycle through dangerous radioactive areas. Despite the attention she pays to her geiger counter, I can't help but think this is a really stupid thing to be doing.

The pictures she publishes of what the land and buildings and remains look like in the contaminated area are simply horrific.

    I read the story too, and was pretty impressed, but it seems Elena could be a fraud…

    Thank you for sharing that with the public, Bart. I was somewhat suspicious of the images.
