26 years after the reactor explosion at chernobyl in the ukraine, an effort to confine the radioactivity at the disaster site has proven
to be successful despite the dangers involved in containing the scattered deadly materials. using remote controlled equipment,
the ruins are dismantled with plans for permanent storage, sealing the site for over 100 years. with infrastructure valued at
over 2 billion USD in place, MIT has documented a look at the processes involved in cleaning up one of the world’s worst nuclear
disasters.

since the most recent nuclear disaster in japan, designboom has covered an emergency robot by toshiba, capable of withstanding
high radiation and working in nuclear environments for situations like these.
