unlikely: gopher321: Those Russians sure know how to build 'em to last.Seriously. No maintenance in almost 30 years? On a flat roof? That's kinda impressive.
Kazan: it's a turbine housing, nothing hazardous in it.
Gyrfalcon: gopher321: Those Russians sure know how to build 'em to last.It was never built to last.

Evil Mackerel: uncleacid: Snowflakes will now all look alike.There are many copies and they have a plan.
SevenizGud: I blame global warming.Just add this to the list of things global warming causes - nuclear power accidents.
brantgoose: Now they will have to build an even bigger "sarcophagus" over the existing cement cover.
Kibbler: But today's new and modern nuclear power plant designs, citizens, today's designs, will create a veritable utopia in which nuclear energy is clean, cheap and safe. So cheap that we may not even need to meter it!
TheOmni: "Even if the radiation level has not changed, it's still an alarming signal," Vladimir Chuprov, head of the energy program at Greenpeace Russia, said, according to the Interfax news agency. "If the panels in the turbine hall have collapsed, then in principle there is no guarantee that the sarcophagus, built in 1986, will not start falling apart in the near future."This doesn't really follow. These two things were built for completely different purposes, there's no reason to believe that the collapse of a roof in a turbine hall has any relation to the structure of a protective dome over a major nuclear disaster. It could be indicative that other parts of the original Chernobyl plant are in danger of collapse, but the sarcophagus is a completely different structure.
traylor: "Yes, it is unpleasant, but there is no danger."If a section of the roof collapsing did not create any risk then what's the point of the roof altogether? Wouldn't it be better to bring it down entirely?
GungFu: Chernobyl, Schernobyl...
Voiceofreason01: Kazan:it's a turbine housing, nothing hazardous in it.Yeah but you know there was at least one poor bastard near the site who heard that thing collapse and was like "OH SHIAT!"
