This Astonishing Dome Will Protect Us From Chernobyl For The Next 100 Years

Dwarfing the twisted metal remains of Chernobyl is the New Safe Containment, a vast structure that after 10 years of planning and building, will now cocoon the lethal building for the next 100 years.

Built alongside the wreckage, the 36,000 tonne dome has had to be slowly moved over the building as construction directly above the reactor would have been impossible.

After a nail-biting week of moving the dome inches at a time, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development has confirmed that today, the building has reached its final resting place.
