The original sarcophagus was of box design, wasn't so smart for the snow that can just pile on the roof, but it was the best they could do.

This new design anything on top just slides down the sides.

Yes. The team had to make some difficult choices. The radiation was a major factor in how they proceeded. The other issue they had was the instability of the structure they were building the original containment on. Because of this issue, they couldn't build the roof system with the proper materials for fear of the weight causing a total collapse of the building.

The new sarcophagus has a crane system built into the roof to facilitate the dismantling process of the old sarcophagus along with eventually getting at the remains of the reactor. The new containment also is sealed against points of the building to maintain humidity in the structure to slow the degradation of the compromised structure.

Taking a close look at that photo there looks to be "catwalk" running across the top of the structure.

I know inside the dome there is the original sarcophagus covering the reactor, but imagine walking across the catwalk and stopping at the exact spot over the reactor under you.

I wonder the radiation level at that spot. Even if covered by two containment structures.

She claims that the devastating accident at Chernobyl will have killed approximately 150,000 people in Ukraine alone! Not even taking into account all the other countries that were impacted by the massive fallout. Fascinating stuff your expert is teaching us isnít it.

Just letting people know they're watching fiction. Care to dispute?

It's called cinematography. It's obvious I'm not a Russian troll, I don't get why you guys are being intellectually dishonest.

Chernobyl - HBO Miniseries

Edit: didn't realize this was already discussed in detail.

Saw this over the weekend and I would suggest you watch it. Great miniseries!

Followed it up with a bunch of YouTube and documentaries on the subject. Very interesting content.
