How We Fixed the Most Radioactive Place on Earth

Once upon a time, there was a lake that was so radioactive, that standing on its shore for more than an hour would almost definitely kill you. Join Olivia to learn how it got that bad in the first place, and what was done to fix it!

Many wonderful patriotic hard working Russian techs taken from Saint Petersburg died terrible miserable deaths after short term mishaps ... they had to volunteer and then draw straws to cleaning up waste with rubber apron and boots mop and bucket as - non - protection. They knew in their twenties ...yet they sacrificed for mother Russia

"But if we had just disposed of our waste safely, we could have avoided this whole mess." Your pronoun is misleading. Exactly who is the we you are referring to?

A reasonable video, but I feel it lacked visuals. It felt more like a lecture than a science show. Novels are good, but a few illustrations once in a while help to make it more enjoyable.

Every one of her sentences sounds the same. Her voice starts off real high and then drifts down to where she sounds like a frog croaking at the end.

It's interesting but the title is way too positive, from the 3rd most radioactive place to the 7th is not that big of a change after all. There was recently a radioactive incident of some sort with radioactive winds detected coming from that facility, never clarified AFAIK. So it's still bad, very bad.

I couldn’t help but notice the people that commented on Olivia’s “frog voice” not even realizing that every one of you probably speaks in a way that irritates the hell out of somebody too, but they were CONSIDERATE enough about your feelings not to point it out.
facite non victimarum (3 месяца назад)
First, you're not being considerate enough about OUR feelings to claim that every one of us speaks in a way that irritates the hell out of somebody. You just hurt my sensitive feelings while not realizing you're being inconsiderate and hypocritical. Second, if everyone speaks in an annoying, irritating way as you claim, then no one would even notice her vocal habits, they would just be normal. But people do notice because they're not normal, they're irritating as f-ing hell. Third, maybe you should apologize to Olivia for repeating the claim she has a frog voice, and to the rest of us for saying we're all irritating to someone. Fourth, as Olivia would say, ribbit ribbit ribbit croak croak ribbit ribbit...🐸

Not any nuclear material could be fixed, nor "cleaned", nuclear energy for now is the worst kind of energy, we dont have solution for nuclear radioactive waste, and also those nuke weapons test sites, that radiation does not "stay" in the same spot it gets blown by wind all over the planet, whatever there are wars or some other disaster, nuclear waste will get us eventually, until some day we could actually "clean completely" waste and radioactivity, i would be always against it.

Kinda ridiculous that the EU and the USA have to fund a clean up of a disastrous mess that the Soviet Union/Russia caused on their own with very obvious mistakes.

Way to downplay the evils perpetrated by the Soviet Union... You talk about it as though it was an honest mistake. They also dumped waste into the Techa River for decades knowing that hundreds of thousands of people used the river as a water source. The people in charge CLEARLY weren't concerned with safety. Do you really believe they ever planned to clean up the lake? Gimme a break. The mentality was "Just dump it in the lake and forget about it. If it ends up killing a few thousand innocent people, oh well. We can sacrifice those people because it's for the greater good."

"If WE had just disposed of our waste safely we could have avoided this whole mess." I'm very confused; it was the Soviet's mess and once WE knew of it, WE went in and helped ameliorate it. Right?
Fraser Henderson (3 месяца назад)
"dispose of our waste safely"? that's a clever idea... but too crazy for industry, government and the military. maybe a few hippies will try it. if they have any radioactive isotopes.

What's this "we" stuff you keep talking about? The Russians were like this (paranoid, secretive, and disastrously trying to do things they have no talent for) long before communism and always will be. Don't lump the rest of the world in with them.
