Quotes

Narrator: A huge explosion throws the 1200 ton reactor-lid into the air. A cloud of radioactive gas spreads hundreds of meters from the power plant. From the huge hole flames with radioactive particles of uranium and graphite shoot almost 1000 meters up into the night sky.
Youri Korneev (machinist, reactor block 4): You could see bright, luminous colors: orange, red, sky-blue. Actually it was beautiful to behold... like a rainbow.
