In what country did the most disastrous nuclear power plant accident take place?
The Chernobyl disaster occurred as a result of flaws in the reactor design plus a flawed safety test. There was damage to the surrounding environment and an increase in thyroid cancer in Belarus. 2 million people were exposed/affected by radiation as a result of the explosion, which was 400 times more powerful than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.
