The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occurred on Saturday 26 Aprilat the No. 4 nuclear reactor in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, near the city of Pripyat in the north of the Ukrainian SSR.

It is considered the worst nuclear disaster in history and is one of only two nuclear energy disasters rated at seven—the maximum severity—on the International Nuclear Event Location: Chernobyl nuclear power plant.

The Chernobyl disaster triggered the release of substantial amounts of radioactive contamination into the atmosphere in the form of both particulate and gaseous of it is the most significant unintentional release of radioactivity into the environment. The work of the Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment (SCOPE), suggests that the Chernobyl incident.
