I'm in Kiev for a project and followed others to the Ukrainian National Chernobyl Museum today. Only later did we understand why we got in for free - it's exactly 31 years ago that there was a steam explosion in reactor no. 4, resulting in the fire that lasted for 9 days, bellowing radioactive debris into the atmosphere.

I made a mistake, it's been 33 years since the disaster. I trusted what I heard, and neglected to verify :).

Hey @donna
Have been there too at that museum, in 2008, already a while ago. But I imagine it has not changed...
