Four Years Since The Phoronix Chernobyl Expedition
Written by Michael Larabel in Phoronix on 26 April 2014 at 12:46 PM EDT. 25 Comments
Today is the 28th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster within the Ukraine. With this being a light news weekend, if you weren't a Phoronix reader four years ago, we took a trip out to Chernobyl and Pripyat and you can see a horde of our photos.

While not related to computers, one of the most popular articles on Phoronix.com in the past ten years is in fact our Chernobyl pictures.

Over Easter in 2010 was the visit to Chernobyl for two days. Those wanting to read about my thoughts and see all of the pictures can view Chernobyl in 2010.


Some Phoronix readers have expressed in having another more organized Phoronix trip out to Chernobyl, but given the current instability in the region, that may be a while before I'm back in the area. Some Phoronix readers have also proposed in our forums a Phoronix "It Blew Up Real Damn Good" tour to other interesting and seldom-seen areas of the world. There's the possibility of checking out a few old Soviet sites this summer now that I have Russian residency but any organized Phoronix tours have yet to be decided for the near future.


See all the photos.
