2 To 3 Minutes In Hell: Cleaning Chernobyl

A gripping, short documentary video of the horrifying challenge confronting the Soviet Union’s “biorobots” — soldiers, scientists, and civilians who were tasked with the emergency cleanup following the explosions at Chernobyl. Radio-controlled robotic machines were used at first, but their circuitry quickly broke down from the radiation, leaving humans with shovels as the only option.

    Anne Coulter says radiation is good for you and that the only people that died in Chernobyl were killed by the initial blast. She should probably go to japan and help out.

    Interviews continue and they describe the effects of the work on them. They’re really tactile, horrid stuff. Retrospective analysis wraps up this terrible tale of woe on a down note.
