Unfortunately, only an experiment was being planned that 26 April 1986 Saturday night when Chernobyl exploded and the nuclear power plant wrote a tragic history.
Firstly, it was thought that 1000 km2 big region would be affected and all people who lived in that region were discharged. Although time passed, more and more mutated babies and the number of human beings getting cancer increased. Nowadays, the government tries to find solution ways for the field of catastrophe which is like a ghost city for 30 years by now.
The nuclear power plant in Ukraine was taken under control by pouring hundreds of tons of concrete and still the radiation spread through.
The government of Ukraine never gave up to continue researching for the field and is now planning to build an electric power plant there. Planned to produce around 1400 MW energy, the plant would be located within an area of 60 km2. Only trained employees and special technicians would then work there.
If realized, the facility would take over the title of being the greatest power plant in the World which is Longyangxia Dam Solar Park for the time being with 850 MW electricity production in an area of 23 km2.
PS: Did you know that the Chernobyl explosion was 200 times bigger than effects of the atom bomb which was dropped to Japan?
