Video | A Drone’s-Eye View of Chernobyl

December 2nd, 2014

A monument to catastrophic irresponsibility, the 1,000 mile “Chernobyl Exclusion Zone” has been wasting away, largely unseen for almost 30 years – until now. Mashable shares how “Danny Cooke, a British filmmaker, captured the incredible aerial footage during a visit earlier this year while on assignment with CBS News’ 60 Minutes“. Beautiful, haunting video of the city that once housed 14,000 people, below.“Armed with a camera and a dosimeter geiger counter, I explored,” Cooke says of his 3-minute video entitled Postcards from Pripyat, Chernobyl.
