The photographer made two series of photos: the first series was completely blank (by the radiation exposure). The second series was made after the camera was protected by lead plates. These photos are the first ones made after the accident.

No. Ever had an XRAY? Film is sensitive to Gamma Radiation.

These cameras were old and mechanical, they were probably more resistant to radiation than a modern digital one.

the radiation from the accident itself would completely wipe out any film recordings of the reactor from that range.

I would imagine this is the graphite smoke as the photo was taken on the day of the incident - however I do not claim to be an expert in the field of nuclear disasters or indeed atomic science. The photo was taken by a gentleman called Anatoly Rasskazov, summoned to the power station the same day as the incident to photograph it. This is taken from a helicopter that flew over the reactor. Despite requests by his fellow passengers on board the chopper to keep the window closed, he could not get a good enough photograph with it shut due to the huge amount of ash and debris in the air. Unbelievably, he actually leaned out of the window to take this photograph and other aerial shots - and astonishingly he is still alive, despite having suffered terribly. The number of roentgens he would have received simply flying over the reactor would be immense; leaning out would have exacerbated this considerably. The BBC website contains a particularly interesting article on this man, whom they managed to track down. Available here as of 27.12.06 - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/6177927.stm

Man, that was such a horrible tragedy. What excactly was the cause of the accident? Something happen with the cooling system and it got too hot and melted down? Very interesting stuff here.

You can do quite a lot with photoshop these days and don't you have to stay in the group on those tours?

That youtube link shows the blue fire and exposed rods. There is footage that was shown on The History Channel that showed the evacuation in progress where there are white flashes from where radiation struck the film.

Here is some interesting footage showing the molten fuel...

Alans right, i am 80% sure she went. theres alot showing she was there that other pics cant say.

@Conrad : I thought this tour happened only during the day. If they didn't even let the bike in then how is the bike in the night time photos?

@Kelly- that biker chick turned out to be a scam and she has since changed the website (this was about a year ago). She only went on a standard tour of the Pripyat area, and they didn't even let her bike in past the borders. It was all a huge load of BS, she even admitted. Go ahead and google "kiddofspeed fake" and see what pops up.

Hey, check this biking girl out. She makes frequent visits to the reactor site and Pripyat on her bike http://www.elenafilatova.com/

Nighthawke, Where the hell did you see something like that? Were you at Chernobyl when the accident happened?

I've seen the footage where the blue fire from the ionized hydrogen is emitted. From what I can recall, The smoke and the ionization was mixed together. The fuel rods themselves were visible as reddened shafts and had fields of blue ionization around...
