Scientific bases in the Exclusion Zone

Experimental bases in Chernobyl

     During the explosion of the 4th unit of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, a huge amount of radioactive substances fell into the environment. Ecologists and scientists said that there will be absolute wasteland on the Chernobyl lands: there will be no people, animals, vegetation will not grow well.


     The only researcher in the field of mutations and anomalies is the Kiev geneticist, Professor Vyacheslav Konovalov. He put together a collection of mutants who began to be born after the explosion. He monitored animals in settlements that were located up to the border of the Exclusion Zone. The results were very shocking: a foal with eight legs, a cow skull with four horns, a calf with eight legs, a pig with two torsos ...


     In this regard, in order to study the effect of radiation on living organisms in the Exclusion Zone, various experimental polygons, scientific bases, and laboratories were created. Scientists using chemicals, fertilizers, additives, tried to grow environmentally friendly grain and fodder crops. But in order to achieve such an effect, it was proved, perhaps, only in greenhouses and with imported land, outside the Chernobyl region. In greenhouses, scientists raised an environmentally friendly cucumber, whose family tried to sell abroad. The family of the cucumber went through all the checks, the laboratory, dosimetry, but when people found out that it was from Chernobyl, “such kindness is not necessary for nothing.”


     In the former village of Novosepelichi, which is located north of a kilometer from Pripyat. In addition to growing vegetation, there were also animals. They brought a California worm, with which they tried to clear the soil of radionuclides, and there were three cows on the base, which were symbolically nicknamed Alpha, Beta, Gamma and there was a bull named Uranus. When the cows were brought to the scientific base, in the first year they showed unsatisfactory results, and then, in the end, the bull Uranus became the father of 140 calves, gave very rich offspring.


     Also, in the 90s an experimental apiary was created, where scientists monitored honey, bees and the effect of radiation on these organisms. As an experiment, Przewalski’s horses were brought to the Exclusion Zone, where scientists wanted to track and understand whether they would take root in this infected area. As a result, they adapted and instead of 22 horses imported, now there are about 100 individuals in the Exclusion Zone.


     As the reality shows, now the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is an open-air museum, a reserve. Nature takes its toll. Do not delay time and visit Chernobyl and Pripyat right now, until time has destroyed what was built by mankind and look at preserved samples of advanced Soviet technologies, see how islands of human civilization melt under the pressure of wildlife and learn the truth about past events.
