Caption: Chernobyl decontamination meeting. Soviet physicists meeting in an administration building to discuss decontamination (liquidation) work following the nuclear disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear power station, Ukraine. On 26 April 1986, one of the reactors here went out of control, leading to meltdown and an explosion. Around 1000 square kilometres of land were directly contaminated by radioactive fall-out of heavy elements released into the atmosphere by the explosion. Hundreds of thousands of liquidators who cleaned up the disaster were exposed to high levels of radiation. Photographed in June 1986.
