18 photos documenting the consequences of the Chernobyl disaster

On April 26, 1986, a nuclear reactor in the territory of Ukraine, which was then part of the former Soviet Union, failed. As a result of that severe systemic failure, the reactor core was melted, and radioactive materials released from it were scattered everywhere, first to the environment close to the reactor, and then to almost every continent in Europe.  As a result , thousands of people have been killed - either directly or indirectly.  At the time, such a scenario might sound like science fiction, but today we all know that this happened in reality, at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant near the city ofPripyat in northwestern Ukraine , and the case is known as the Chernobyl disaster. 
In fact, this nuclear accident has been considered the most serious of its kind since they began using nuclear energy, and to date there is a ban on humans entering the area within a radius of 30 km from the reactor's whereabouts.

Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope Mission and Key Technologies (WFIRST space telescope)

Wide field infrared survey telescope is designed to answer big questions about the universe:  What is dark energy, which seems to be speeding up The expansion of the universe? How many planets exist among the Stars, and what are they like?  WFIRST is similar to Hubble, but benefits from 30 years of technological development. It will view the sky on a scale never before accomplished from space.
The Primary mirror This is where WFIRST is closest to Hubble. The same size and type of main mirror, a 2.4-meter precisely shaped piece of silver-coated glass.  The size of this mirror is partly how WFIRST matches Hubble’s resolution.
Wide Field Instrument 
The Wide field infrared survey telescope main camera is the Wide Field Instrument which will take infrared pictures of the sky to study dark energy, observe galaxies and stars, and find exoplanets. 
Instead of Hubble’s single first-generation image sensor, the WFI incorporates 18 third-generation chips that allow it to take pictures capturing 100 tim…

Amazon Forest On Fire 2019 (NASA Satellite Data)

With the 2019 fire season in the Amazon approaching its midpoint, scientists using NASA satellites to track fire activity have confirmed an increase in the number and intensity of fires in the Brazilian Amazon in 2019, making it the most active fire year in that region since 2010.Amazon forest on fire 2019
Fire activity in the Amazon varies considerably from year-to-year and month-to-month, driven by changes in economic conditions and climate. 
August 2019 stands out because it has brought a noticeable increase in large, intense, and persistent fires burning along major roads in the central Brazilian Amazon, explained Douglas Morton, chief of the Biospheric Sciences Laboratory at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. 
While drought has played a large role in exacerbating fires in the past, the timing and location of fire detections early in the 2019 dry season are more consistent with land clearing than with regional drought.

“Satellites are often the first to detect fires burning in remo…
