Creepy photos of Chernobyl

I think there are very few people, who haven't heard something about the monumental Chernobyl disaster that occurred in 1986 in Ukraine, when an explosion at a nuclear power plant sent out massive amounts of nuclear material into the atmosphere. It ruined and destroyed the lives of many unfortunate people located around the plant and it tarnished the name of nuclear power forever. 

With the situation at Japan's Fukushima I nuclear power plant as it is, you can't help but see some parallels between these two accidents and hope and pray that, in the future, pictures as depressing as these will never become Japan's own historical accounts of a horrible disaster that once struck there.
