“ The bio-robots of Chernobyl, liquidators tasked with the manual clean-up of heavily contaminated debris from the rooftop of reactor since the RC vehicles originally sent were.

Chernobyl

Biorobots ran up onto the roof in shifts of 20 to 40 seconds. During this short interval, they had to grab a fragment and throw it back into the mouth of the wrecked fourth reactor.

During years of my interest in Chernobyl, I have collected rare and unique materials of Chernobyl accident and it's aftermath.

After the explosion, the facility was covered in pieces of highly contaminated graphite, the substance that had been used instead of water to cool the reactor and slow the fission reaction in the Chernobyl plant design - National Geographic

Workers clean up the highly radioactive roof of the exploded Chernobyl powerplant. The white lines on the bottom of the picture were caused by the radiation from the reactor below them.

Chernobyl. Keep out.

Chernobyl. Here are some of the robotic heroes involved in the clean up of the roof next to Reactor 4. The ambitious plan to use German, Japanese, and other robots ultimately failed, as the robots would simply break down from the radiation. So - the so called biorobots were used. That's humans. They would break down too, just later, having been given 100 rubles and a certificate.

The explosion at reactor four scattered radioactive debris in a large area around the unit, especially the roof of neighboring reactor three. The conscripts who had to clean the roof were given the nickname “biorobots.

CHERNOBYL AND IT'S LEGACY: ONLY ONCE IN A LIFETIME.  In September 1986, reservists -- the so-called "liquidators" cleared 170 tons of rubble from the roof of the reactor complex. Normally, the liquidators ascended the roof only once, because the radiation dose they received there is the maximum authorized dosage a human being should receive in his entire life.
