Yeah I saw it few weeks ago. Really really wild ride... I think this girl has balls (and connections)... I lived few hundred miles away from that plcace when it happend and most of the fallout carried by wind hit the mountains and fell on our villages. I have to say that drinking iodine sucks... Still if it wasn't for radio "Free Europe" and Swedish gov't it would have been just another cover up. Like K19, or number of Russian astronauts that were used as test dummies but were only gloryfied if mission was success, or Uranium mines, or murder of Polish officers and soldiers during WWII, or work camps in 1940s/50s/60s, or outbrakes of antrax and other bio weapons that wiped out half the towns that factories were located in, or Afganistan...

I once heard that there was Another Nuclear Accident / or Explosion, -I Think in the Sverdlovsk Area. (In or Close to the Urals, Late 50s or Early 60s, I Think) [color:"black"] [/color] [email]Polak187[/email]

I think she states specifically on her web site at one point that her father is a nuclear scientist and that's the only reason she was able to get a pass to go into the forbidden zone.

Whatever, I thought it was an amazing story. When I started to read it, I thought "Typical biker chick". But I was really astonished by the sensitivity of her writing. I don't know why, I guess "sensitive poet" just didn't fit in with my stereotype of "biker chick". <img src="images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />
