    Did anyone catch Nova......on the new tomb for Chernobyl. It was pretty good. They have an interesting remote internal crane for demolition. And the alternative to wheels and bearings was pretty neat.
    The corrosion abatement is new too.

    Try to catch it if you can.

    Edit: Forgot......this largest of man-made movable structure has a one hundred year warranty also.

    All it takes is money. I'm waiting on THE WALL. It's very symbolic to me. The real purpose of the wall is.......a message to the American Politicians......from the American People..........of their miserable failure of their oath, to the Constitution. And to obey the law they write.

    And it will. We want all the world to see it. Let's see if it's possible to embarrass a politician. The price is of no concern.

    it was financed by over 40 countries.

    200 people returned to live in the fobidden zone. The idea for the 100 years is to decommission the old reactor. I highly doubt it will happen.

    Oh I'm sure your right. It will still take 100 years of money. It was very interesting of how nature and creatures have re-claimed the area.
