    We all know that the radiation spread out to many other countries around the Ukraine. But, did it ever reach the US or other countries? I imagine some of the radiation went around the whole world. It was a massive explosion and a lot of radiation and harmful chemicals reached the atmosphere. So, could it have reached other countries?

    To my understanding, it was mostly Europe and other surrounding countries. I don't think it reached the US though. It would have needed to take a lot for it to get over here. Either way, it was still devastating to a large area, and still is in many ways. The are will continue to seep radioactive material, which will continue to release in the air. Not sure if Europe is still at risk. You're certainly at risk if you live in or around Chernobyl.

    Yeah I can't imagine it reaching the US. If anything it might reach the ocean water and may reach us in that way, but I don't know if it would be enough to reach us.
