In the news this morning, 30 years ago today, the Chernobyl nuclear plant in Chernobyl, Ukraine, exploded.  An explosion and fire in reactor four on April 26, 1986 sent large amounts of radioactive material into the atmosphere.  Approximately 1,800 square miles had to be permanently abandoned around the disaster site, and 9,000 people were killed.  It is the world's worst nuclear accident in history.
