Once home to some 50,000 people whose lives were connected to the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, Pripyat was hastily evacuated one day after a reactor at the plant 3 kilometres away exploded. The explosion and the subsequent fire spewed a radioactive plume over much of northern Europe.
It was eerie wandering the town and seeing all the empty places. I cannot imagine how the people living there must have felt on that doomsday.
Whether it is with such accidents, poaching wild animals, or deforesting the trees, etc., when do the humans wake up and see what they do to their only home?
