Chernobyl: The Most Awesome Tourist Destination

“Background radiation in the accident zone is still well above normal,” says CNN, about the Chernobyl exclusion zone, which is going to be opened to tourists! Awesome. I would love to go see this, actually. But also, says CNN, “visitors receive a dose comparable to the exposure they would receive on a trans-Atlantic flight.” Got that? High radiation; just like flying to London.
