RC drone explored the abandoned Fukushima
The accident at the NPP Fukushima-1 Fukushima occurred almost three years ago. A terrible accident has shocked the whole world, no one could remain indifferent. But many are still concerned about what’s happening in the dead of the evacuated area and will allow residents to get home sometime soon? The first question has already been answered, and the second is unlikely. However, some citizens in the remote areas of the Prefecture were allowed to return home.
Recently, a research centre HEXaMedia deployed in the disaster area mobile research station unmanned drones to explore the city of Tomioka, where it is still prohibited to go to the people. Work began in March of this year. Of the best composed shots is an impressive video lasting seven minutes.
It’s terrible and simultaneously a beautiful image of an abandoned city, abandoned for the night due to the earthquake at 9.0 points, have caused the catastrophe.
Although it’s easy to draw Parallels between Fukushima and Chernobyl, the similarities with the current of the Pripyat and its vicinity is not so much too little time has passed to have time to disrepair. At that time, as citizens of Fukushima are doing everything possible to restore the normal background radiation, there are some things that will never be the same.
Nuclear power certainly has its advantages, but this video is a powerful reminder of what can happen when things go wrong.
