Nuclear no-go zone in Japan

After the earthquake they cannot go back to look for their dead loved ones because this area is highly radioactive

Nuclear no-go zone in Japan

Thousands of people had to flee their homes after the accident at the Fukushima nuclear plant. Since then, the area around the reactor has been a no-go area. This photo shows a deserted street in Odaka inside the 20-kilometer exclusion zone.

Nuclear no-go zones

This nuclear no-go zone is in Kazakstan. It was a Soviet nuclear testing site and is just one of many places in the world that remain dangerously radioactive to this day.

Everyone knows about Chernobyl, Three Mile Island and, now, Fukushima. But what about Semipalatinsk, Palomares and Kyshtym? The world is full of nuclear disaster zones -- showing just how dangerous the technology really is.
