The explosion was caused by a flawed testing procedure and was the equivalent to 66 tons of TNT going off at one time. The explosion not only blasted away the roof of the reactor’s 20-story building, but completely destroyed everything in the core while ejecting 28 tons of highly radioactive debris into the immediate area surrounding it.

To this day, Pripyat remains a ghost town. Tourists are able to visit the town now as they offer tours and incredible views of what life was in the Ukraine before one of the greatest catastrophes the world has ever seen.
