Hi there, Can anyone answer a few questions I have about chernobyl and related. I am doing some research on something related, and its hard to get good information about this. Here they are. 1) - Can someone explain the steps of the disaster? I mean, lets say is the cooling system failed, what were the physical factors that happened. Did the core heat WAY up? I thought it had something to do with steam bubbles? 2) - This is a question based on the answer to the first question - How is radiation released, what causes the Uranium to release this radiation, and how come it is not released under normal opperation conditions? 3) - Can anyone explain any extraordinary effects this radiation had? Can you explain how this type of radiation effects humans? And how it effects/kills them so fast (They said direct exposure kills under 1 hour!! ? ) That would be great if you could answer these. Thank you and take care.
