    So I didn't know about this, but I guess due to the radiation getting out, it caused nuclear rain. And I guess it got so far as Ireland. That's scary stuff, considering how easily this radiation could spread. Especially during rainfall. How much area do you think it infected with radiation?

    Yikes, that's scary stuff. The fact that it got all the way to Ireland is pretty scary. But even so, it probably wasn't near the level of radiation of actually being there. But, either way, it's radiation and it's dangerous no matter how you put it.

    Yeah it's pretty scary stuff. If anyone was in the area during the rain, I wonder if it could have caused radiation poisoning. Do you guys think there is a chance this rain happens still in the area? I sure hope not.

    I wonder if anyone was caught in that rain at any point. I hope they didn't get any cancer from it, that would be devastating.

    I doubt it happens today, but I could be wrong. Maybe if there is any water near the area, it might pollute the rain a bit.

    It does make me wonder if anyone was caught in the rain at any time. Can you imagine hearing the news "Radioactive rain falls" or something like that. I imagine there would have been a warning about rainfall being an issue, so I at least hope they knew about the rain and at least warned people.

    Well I sure did learn a new thing today. I had no idea it caused nuclear rain. I wonder how far it pushed the radiation. You also have to consider any body of water near Chernobyl could result in radioactive rain. I too wonder if it still happens.

    I think it's kind of expected after this type of disaster. All that nuclear waste getting into the air, the water, the streams, the ground, etc. When it's out in the open like that, it's going to cause some problems.

    Yeah, I guess I never looked at it that way. That nuclear waste got everywhere. Do you think that the are still gets nuclear rain? Or has that since stopped?

    Just like any other nuclear disaster, it's kind of expected. All of that nuclear junk getting out into the ground, local waters and in the forests, doesn't help one bit. I am willing to bet, that they still have nuclear rain, but at a much smaller rate than in the past.

    Do you guys think that the nuclear rain still happens in the area? I mean, if there is any remnants of nuclear waste still hanging around, could it be possible yet?

    I believe to some extent, yes. But I doubt it's as potent as it once was and isn't as dangerous anymore. But, the woods nearby holds a lot of nuclear waste leftover. So, it's possible the rain could mix with that and cause some nuclear rain.
