This essay tells about the ever great disaster occurred in the world by the end of the 20th Century. In this we have made an explanation regarding the nuclear explosion happened in the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Moreover we have also made a discussion with respect to the causes of the disaster, disaster management process, how the disaster could have been avoided, about the outcome of the disaster against environment and inhabitants and finally the control measures which is followed by the conclusion of the essay.


This disaster was due to the nuclear power excursion process. This is a nuclear chain reaction and the outcome of this process will be tremendous emission of Neutron radiation. This is highly poisonous to human beings and develop radioactivity in the surrounding regions. Normally in a nuclear reactor nuclear fissile material such as elements like Uranium or Plutonium are employed. Nuclear fissile materials are elements which can withstand the nuclear fission process. Nuclear fission is the process of breaking up of nucleus of an atom in to numerous smaller parts. Since this process is energy producing one (exothermic) the net result of the reaction will be tremendous release of energy in the form of radiation. Normally this reaction has to be occurred inside the reactor. But in Chernobyl the accident was due to the malfunctioning of the reactor in the plant. There the nuclear fission process and the process of emission of radiation occurred completely from outside. ...
