Chernobyl:20 years later an interesting fact. April 23, 2006

On 26 April 1986, at 1:23 AM, reactor number four at the Chernobyl nuclear power station exploded. The radiation released was over a hundred times more than that of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Excerpt from boing boing articles: chernobyl 20 years later

Quite an interesting fact, now i would know that chernobyl was not actually a virus who crashed millions of computers in April 26, 1999. It was a disaster caused by the explosion of Chernobyl Nuclear Power plant. I am unsure if i am the only one left who do not know about this. 

We have to remember the tragedy of Chernobyl and to make conclusions in order to improve security of all nuclear power plants not only in CEI countries but all over the world. This horror and pain are not to be repeated. – taken from chernobyl.info

There are also a lot of information dedicated to the longterm effects, and helpful actions by people dedicatedto helping the victims of the chernobyl tragedy at chernobyl.info.
