Storyline

In 1986, in the heart of Ukraine, the Chernobyl nuclear reactor exploded, releasing 400 times more radiation than the Hiroshima Bomb. Hastily, a "sarcophagus" was built to contain the radioactive materials that lingered at the site after the explosion. However, 30 years later, the sarcophagus is crumbling, and another disaster at Chernobyl looms. Now, an international team of engineers is racing the clock to assemble one of the most ambitious superstructures ever built-an extraordinary 40,000 ton, $1.5 billion dome to encase the crumbling remains of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor. Battling arctic winter weather-and lethal radiation-this is the inside story of the epic race to build Chernobyl's Mega Tomb. Written by A. Nonymous

Interesting documentary special
19 July 2019 | by CalicodreaminSee all my reviews

Short documentary detailing the building of the dome to cover Chernobyl nuclear reactor to protect from the collapse of the interior dome hastily built when the reactor first collapsed. The special goes into a little history of the reactor collapse, then the subsequent building of an exterior dome, and now the latest building of a dome designed to last the next 100 years. The special doesn't go into great detail on either topic, but gives more general overviews of each.
