    Despite all the crap we Westerners gave the Soviets, you can't front that those men are noble and brave for containing this thing despite knowing they would get sick or even die from the radiation exposure.

    Or, you know, there's the bottom of the Mariana Trench (Challenger Deep). Not only will it be impossible for you to reach the surface in time to breathe, but the water pressure would be enough to crush you almost instantly

    Two bullshit facts in your video: 1) the man in the photograph is known and he lived more than 10 years after the photo was taken; 2) the elephants foot is not hot, its corrosive thats why it is "melting" through the concrete floor.

    The elephants foot is actually not as much radioactive as told, the dosimetrists team is has measured it several times and says it doesnt stand out in the environment. The photographer who took the photo is probably Alexander Kupnik, a dosimetrist and photographer who worked at Chernobyl NPP after the accident, and surprise-surprise, is still alive and well today, and even has his own TheXvid channel, where he uploads a bunch of detailed videos and interviews about the accident and what surrounds it.

    Hold up im so confused... if it's the basement in Pripyat that's dangerous then what does that have to do with the Elephants foot???

    • MyrMerek

      Hi! As of today, the elephants foot has been extensively cleaned by special solutions and all of the radioactive particles have been swept away by the water which was poured massively into the reactor, and the radiation near it isnt above average in the building. Right after the accident, samples were taken from the elephants foot using a running scientist with a hammer (legend says they shoot it with a gun from a corner, and a guy rushed to collect samples) and analysis revealed that there wasnt much of nuclear fuel inside the elephants foot, but was rather mixed steel and concrete that melted because of heat. In Pripyat, however, there exists a basement inside the Hospital 126, where the clothing of the firefighters and doctors who were first responders to the accident was thrown; up to this day it wasnt washed or cleaned, so the radioactive particles of fast-decaying nuclear fuel which fell on their clothing as dust is still there; the radiation inside the small room 1.5 meters above ground in 2018 is around 20-70 R/h, and on the ground it is more than 100 R/h, which could actually be off-scale to even hard military-grade dosimeters; The deadly dose being 600R, you would have to spend atleast 6h inside, laying in the dirt to die. Despite the danger, illegal tourists regularly check on the room; you can find interesting videos and radiation checks by looking up МСЧ-126 which is the hospital name.

    I kinda want to go there. Ya know look at it for no more than 5 mins, cause in 96, 5 mins would give you sickness. It will still be radioactive, but a lot less than then

    On the Wikipedia page of the elephant's foot it says that it's able to be damage by a Kalashnikov rifle, meaning that somebody actually thought of and _did_ shoot the thing

    a handy toyota? hell yeah! i have a 99 corolla i put a hitch on it and have pulled 1900 lbs from jacksonville to the mountains of the san bernadino forrest in california taking a rather zig zaggy path as ive been checking out the american southwest, altogether i have pulled 1900 lbs about 5000 miles and driven it another 25000 miles in just one year and havent had one major problem. and the only minor problems were both inside door handles breaking lol. this is likely due to the reduced need to exit the vehicle once you get in it.
