The Zone of Alienation - closed from the outside world and 32 years is controlled by military checkpoints. Here forever remained the ghost town Pripyat, buried under the sarcophagus atomic reactor and the mysterious "Red Forest", which changed color after the nuclear explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The aureole of mystery and secrecy has spawned numerous legends about the life hidden from extraneous eyes on the territory contaminated with radiation. What of the stories told by the stalkers and self-travelers, is it true, but what is fiction? Today in our article! Myth - The zone of alienation is fit for life The view that the 30 km area is suitable for living people is not true! According to radiation intelligence reports, the radiation background decreased by 1000, and in some places by 10,000 times. This is due to the half-life of isotopes of strontium and cesium (30 years), regular measures to clean the contaminated area, the construction of a new sarcophagus over the reactor "Arka". But do not forget that the isotopes of plutonium and americium persist in the soil up to 40 thousand years. Therefore, sightseers observe a relatively normal background, walking along the asphalt in Chernobyl, Pripyat and critical readings of the dosimeter, getting to the ground. To say that the harvest grown on a closed territory is safe for people's health criminal stupidity! Myth - mutants The radiation background of a mutagen is a scientific fact, which in the first years after the catastrophe at the nuclear power plant was confirmed by scientists: a foal, born with deformities of limbs, an eight-legged calf, a two-headed pig and other genetic anomalies. Another question is that animals with such ugliness are not viable and natural selection does not give them a chance to breed in natural conditions. Therefore, it is unlikely that a curious tourist will see a terrible "curiosity" in the forest of the Zone of Alienation. According to scientists, it is possible to clearly observe a mutation in a 30 km zone on the flora, especially on pines and flowers: a change in size, direction of growth, a bizarre shape. Myth - Zombies We answer unequivocally - the zombie does not exist! Promotion of the computer game "S.T.A.L.K.E.R. "Spawned among the young fans a lot of blood-chilling stories about the wandering Chernobyl zombies. Having got on an excursion to Pripyat, young people even manage to fight with imaginary monsters, because to see them in reality is impossible!
