CHERNOBYL FROM A DRONE



This is video of a drone flyover of the city of Chernobyl, Russia..I suppose we all know of the deadly and tragic history from the end of the 20th century..

Now, so many decades later—but no danger is gone—a drone captured chilling footage of the city of Pripyat, Ukraine. The city is stuck in time—people who were mandated to leave after the nuclear disaster in 1986 were told they’d be gone for three days. They never came back, but because the government lied to them, many of their personal possessions were simply left in place. The images from the drone were courtesy of Danny Cook, who went to Chernobyl to film the video for a CBS 60 MINUTES piece..

The video portrays an overgrown city.. vegetation is lush.. the radiated earth has taken over the streets capes..

The nightmare is nuclear catastrophe will not be over any generation soon.. But the remnants of what was are still cold, vacant, and seemingly chilling..

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …
