Workers will only be able to spend a few minutes at a time at the site,
which is still spewing radiation, so they will have to plan out each
step of the reconstruction in detail, the Vesti news program reported.
Repair plans include adding a second shelter around the old one.
"Shelter 2" is a huge 19,800-ton steel arch designed to be assembled
nearby, then slid into place on rails to minimize workers' radiation
exposure. The sarcophagus is designed to last at least 100 years,
providing improved conditions for further stabilization work and
eventual cleanup of radioactive debris isolated inside.
Watch out for the dragons I hear lurk in the area.
