Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and now Fukushima … what do they have in common?


Gerd Ludwig's 'Long Shadow of Chernobyl' project

On April 26, 1986, operators in this control room of reactor No. 4 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant committed a fatal series of errors during a safety test, triggering a reactor meltdown that resulted in the world's largest nuclear accident to date. Today, the control room sits abandoned and deadly radioactive. Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, Ukraine, 2005 (Gerd Ludwig/INSTITUTE)

Inside Chernobyl’s abandoned hospital, 27 years after Ukranian nuclear plant went into meltdown

A common room in the hospital once provided an area for patients to socialise. Now it has been left to ruin with debris on the ground and exposed beams on the ceiling


This hospital received many of Reactor 4′s first victims for treatment immediately after the explosion at Chernobyl. The hospital itself however was already exposed to huge amounts of radiation. Every rescue worker who attended the initial explosion was killed by radiation poisoning.”
