This Day in History - April 26
April 26, 1986 - Nuclear Reactor explodes at Chernobyl

The explosion of a nuclear reactor at Chernobyl caused a radioactive scare in Scandinavia(斯堪的纳维亚)even before it was announced by the Soviet Union. Occurring on April 26, 1986, it was the worst power plant accident to date. Though some scientists cautioned(警告)against hysteria(过度恐慌), "This accident is a social catastrophe(大灾难), it is a commercial catastrophe, in terms of worst catastrophes, there are many worst catastrophes," (states a scientist at a press conference.) Nevertheless, thirty were reported dead in the Soviet Union, and 237 more suffering from radiation burns. Lapp(拉普兰人)reindeer(驯鹿)were contaminated(污染)as radiation jumped to 50 times normal in Sweden. And the Soviets plan to monitor the residents close to Chernobyl, possibly for life.
