The Chernobyl disaster, nuclear energy, the exclusion zone – these are not just elements of a computer game, but our reality. We face the consequences of the accident that happened 37 years ago and the nuclear power plants that power our homes every day. This book does not offer a detailed analysis of the events of April 26, 1986, or the stories of the liquidators. Instead, it introduces the reader to the basics of radiation science, the people who create it, and answers the questions: What is happening in Chernobyl now? What can the future of radiation and nuclear safety be in the world after the war in Ukraine?
Is Chernobyl snow safe? Is it possible to eat potatoes from the exclusion zone?
The authors of the book – radiobiologists Olena Pareniuk and Kateryna Shavanova – also talk about the occupation of Chernobyl and the situation at the Zaporizhzhia NPP, tactical nuclear weapons, and Fukushima.

«Chernobyl: Radiation, Safety, and the Future» is not just a book, it is an attempt to understand the complex issues that affect us all.
