Caption

Interior of a nuclear power station. View of the reactor vessel of an RBMK-type nuclear power reactor. The RBMK design is used extensively throughout the CIS and eastern Europe, and is a type of boiling water reactor. In this design, the coolant water is converted to steam in the reactor. The steam is then fed directly to turbines to generate electricity. In 1986, one of the RBMK reactors at the Chernobyl power station suffered the worst nuclear accident ever recorded, and there continue to be some misgivings about the basic design of the type. Photographed at Voronezh, Russia.
