Submission + - Chernobyl's sarcophagus, redux (

Lasrick writes: With the news that a multinational consortium is the halfway point in constructing a huge stainless steel hangar that will sit over the ruined site of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, Dan Drollette looks in the archives of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists and compares notes on the sarcophagus that was built 25 years ago, and the one that is being built now. 'No one really knows what went into the “concrete cube;” even the amount of concrete claimed to have been used is suspect, as it would form a volume larger than the sarcophagus, wrote nuclear engineer and author Alexander R. Sich in his 11-page article, “Truth was an early casualty.”' Let's hope this new sarcophagus lasts longer.
