Half Lives: 25 years after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster

On April 26, 1986, the world's worst nuclear accident occurred in Chernobyl (Chornobyl), Ukraine. The disaster altered millions of lives and 25 years later continues to have serious impacts on human physical and mental health, politics, culture, arts and the environment. We spend the week examining Chernobyl's somber legacy and will commemorate the lives and societies affected by what perhaps is the ultimate example of humanity's hubris.
