In the early hours of Saturday morning on April 26, 1986, Reactor Number 4 at Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Pripyat, Ukraine exploded and a large fire ensued. This incident has been described as the worst nuclear disaster the world has ever seen with the explosion unleashing
Chernobyl power plant explosion The Chernobyl nuclear power plant is located in Prypiat Ukraine, when it was under the direct jurisdiction of the central authorities of the Soviet union , on 26 April 1986 a catastrophic nuclear accident occur , An explosion and fire released large quantities of radioactive particles into the atmosphere, which reach over much of the western USSR and Europe, during an experiment to test a way of cooling the core of the reactor in an emergency situation the accident occurred . To illustrate more the test , an inactive nuclear reactor continues to generate a significant amount of remaining heat. (RBMK) reactors, like those in utilize at Chernobyl, subsequent an emergency shutdown will continue to produce 7
With laborious work spread over a span of several weeks in dangerous and inhospitable conditions, the workers finally managed to cool the three reactors and bring them to a stable condition. The entire disaster was rated a 7 on the International Nuclear Event Scale (INES), which is the highest rating and signifies a major disaster. The only other event to be rated a 7 was the Chernobyl disaster nearly a quarter of a century ago, which represents the seriousness of the situation faced by the Japanese. So, the question arises – why did the safety regulations that the plant adhered to fail, and could anything have been done to prevent it. In order to answer these questions, the Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission was set up.
The Chernoby was some how different as Chernoby had no containment structure, and all security systems were deliberately avoided due that it was night. This lead to the 600-ton graphite moderator to catch fire and burn, leading to 29 deaths and n severely irradiated by the radiation, but survived. Chernobyl is the complete example of what not to do with a nuclear reactor: a bad design, an unstable reactor, controlled in an experiment with all security systems disconnected. After this incident, nuclear power plants owners have invested much money trying to have the safest nuclear power plant. The only accident after that was the TMI (three Mile Island), it was counted as” the worst accident in a nuclear power plant”.
Fukushima Nuclear Meltdown 2011 Introduction The Fukushima nuclear meltdown disaster on 11 March 2011 was an aftermath of the magnitude 9.0 Tohoku earthquake and the subsequent tsunami. The equipment failures in the power plant led to discharge of radioactive substance into the seawater and atmosphere. It is the biggest nuclear accident since the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. This paper analyze the causes and explain the consequence of the disaster, follow by the ethical issue which arises from the accident and finally draw a conclusion. Findings As mentioned in the investigation report carried out by the National Diet of Japan found that on March 11, 2011, the East Japan Earthquake(Tohoku) rated in magnitude 9.0 triggered an extremely serious
April 26, 1986 It is a dark tragic night for us who live in Chernobyl, Ukraine. Everyone is terrified, nobody knows what is about to come next or what just happened. There are dead bodies rolling through the streets, animals have gone savage and there are desperate people looking for their family members. Many people got affected by it. Even my close ones.
The bomb created profound mental and physical ailments for many Japanese. The radiation caused by the weapon left most survivors and anyone that came in contact with either site with terrible ailments such as mutilations to their bodies and cancer. These people were shunned by the public because they were believed to have a contractable disease. The guilt and trauma of survivors also lead many of them to suicide. To inflict this much pain on people is never justifiable.
(First person experience of German scientist working on a cure for the mutants, Dr.Edward Richtofen) It is April 26, 1986 and Chernobyl has just exploded. It has killed 31 people and almost 4,000 people could have long-term effects. That is where it gets scary. It is almost 30 years later and those 4,000 people died, but that’s what the public thinks. They think that they are dead, but the Russians have leaked that the people have died; they have come back...from the dead.
The section details the research methodology used to achieve the aim and objectives of the research on stress management at workplaces. Research methodology can be best described as the sum of the research approach, methods and procedures used by the researcher to execute the research study (Anderson, 2009). It comprises of collection of data, evaluation and scrutiny and deriving conclusions to attain the research objectives in the best possible way. A methodological approach ensures that the research takes a non-biased structure and is conclusive in nature. It also covers different aspects of the research, comprising of philosophy, approach, quantitative and qualitative handling of the data collected thereby and the corresponding research
3.2 Definitions and Purpose of Research Hussey and Hussey (2003) concluded that in spite of the significance of research activity, there is no agreed definition in the current literature on how the term should be defined Research stands on the intent to create new knowledge, and any attempt to increase the sum of what is known, usually referred to as ‘a body of knowledge’. According to Williams (2007), research is sometimes erroneously regarded as the gathering information, documenting of facts, and rummaging through previously collected data for information. Contrary to this opinion, research is the process of collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data in order to understand a phenomenon (Leedy & Omrod, 2005). Therefore, the researcher needs to be able to argue convincingly that new knowledge that is valuable has been added to the body of knowledge ( Sekaran , 2003). However, according to Sekaran (2003) research can be defined as, “an organized, systemic, data- based, critical, scientific inquiry or investigation into a specific problem, undertaken with the objective of finding answers or solutions to
