Today in History: Chernobyl Nuclear Plant Unit #4 Exploded, 1986
On April 26, 1986 — 29 years ago today — Nuclear Reactor #4 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant in the Ukraine (at the time under the control of the U.S.S.R.) exploded and released at least 5% of the radioactive core into the atmosphere. One person was killed immediately, and dozens more died in the weeks and months after the explosion from acute radiation syndrome (ARS). The accident was the worst nuclear catastrophe in the history of nuclear technology. 

The Soviet Union took many months to contain the contamination. Robots were required to do containment work, because radiation levels were too high for humans. When robots failed because radiation affected them, humans were used for periods of seconds only to move contaminated items and centralize them so they could be covered with an initial sarcophagus, built to last approximately 30 years. A “New Safe Confinement” (an new sarcophagus to cover the existing sarcophagus) arch-structure is being built now and is planned to be slid over the reactor #4 site (see Center Left image below) and last for at least 100 years.

Mikhail Gorbachev has stated flatly that the Chernobyl explosion was “perhaps the real cause of the collapse of the Soviet Union.”

A qualcuno possono interessare 3 biglietti di Lucca Comics per la giornata di giovedì 30 ottobre? Per sbaglio invece che ordinare per il 31 e 1 ho ordinato 30 e 31, quindi do via quelli del 30 a poco prezzo.
Sono già comprensivi dei braccialetti, quindi non bisogna fare nemmeno un secondo di fila alla biglietteria. Ovviamente non sono nominali.

Visto che ogni tanto qualcuno nei forum lo cerca, e non sembra esisterne una versione online in italiano, mi sono preso la briga di scansionarlo..... Condivido a beneficio di tutti i synth-nostalgici :) #korg01w #manuale #italiano

Test in diurno della videocamera full hd cinese da 25€ per automobile. Ha delle ottime prestazioni considerato il prezzo, finalmente si riescono a vedere le targhe. In notturno la qualità invece rimane bassina (ovviamente non si può pretendere granchè).

I originally posted this in my space opera themed community, Galaxy Ranger, but it's so good that I wanted to share it to my personal profile as well.

The comic is from Steak Smoothie: http://www.steaksmoothie.com/

Alcuni colleghi mi avevano parlato bene di questo studio, così ho provato io stesso ad andarci per un controllo. Sono rimasto molto contento, sia per la professionalità che per la simpatia: ho una bimba piccola e il dottore è stato molto paziente. I prezzi sono più bassi rispetto ad altri preventivi che avevo fatto

Un ottimo posto dove gustare dei salumi ad un prezzo abbordabilissimo. Ottimi la culaccia, il culatello e anche il salame. Il tutto è accompagnato da una focaccia di produzione propria, un pò salata ma buonissima. Sconsiglio i formaggi, non perchè non siano buoni ma qui è meglio mangiare dei salumi che i formaggi ;) Consiglio la prenotazione nei festivi.
