"People can never live there - it's impossible - not even for the next 24,000 years," Ukrainian Ecology Minister Hanna Vronska said of the zone, which encompasses 2,600 sq km (1,000 square miles) of forest, marsh and open countryside.

"The long-term impact of the radiation on animal populations is a subject of intense debate because scientists have struggled to untangle the positive effects of human absence from the negative effects of living in a poisoned environment."

Some great wildlife photos...

What a shame. What a horrible waste.

Indeed, yet, had people and industry not been forced to move out... would this "apparent" beauty exist? Too bad the trees don't glow as a warning sign.

...that's 187.00 uSv/hr 

Conversion: 100 µSv (Microsievert) is equal to = 
0.0001 Sv (Sievert)
100,000,000 pSv (Picosievert)
1.0000*105 nSv (Nanosievert)
100.00 µSv (Microsievert)
0.1 mSv (Millisievert)
0.01 rem (Rem)
1.0000*107 nrem (Nanorem)
10,000 µrem (Microrem)
10 mrem (Millirem)
