Via die puny humans, I find this link, a series of photographs of the cities and villages devastated by the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown and how they are today. Unlivable, for the next 900 or so years. Most breathtaking are the pictures of completely empty city streets in "Ghostown," where the teller of the tale relates that while it costs $210 to get a 2 hour tour of the place, most tourists leave after 15 minutes because the place is so silent, so devoid of life, that they felt like they were going deaf.

Unbelievable. I'm still reeling.
