Chernobyl anniversary – nuclear news this week – Australia and beyond

Today is the 35th anniversary of the meltdown at the Chernobyl nuclear power station.  The Chernobyl story continues .

Coronavirus.   Globally there were about 854,000 new cases in the past 24 hours and over a third of those were from India –hellish second wave ‘tsunami’ ripping India apart.

A bit of good news –‘The Year Earth ChangedUplifting Wildlife Documentary With David Attenborough Heralds Earth Day.
