Why not?  There is no radiation from such a plant.

It was abandoned during construction, never actually put into use.

People better start grasping the idea of Nuke energy as it is the only way forward.  New plants all use passive emergency provisions now for any failure.

Efficiency is way up too.

Without getting into detail, these are not Fukashima's.

You get more radiation if you live close to a coal plant.

Cool! Love the shots, flying and transitions. I probably would've chosen a more gloomy soundtrack for such a dilapidated site, but yours is dramatic and powerful. Thanks for sharing!

Great video, great shots and great edit. The music suits it very well, and indeed a few interesting things to see. It's nice to see the reactor vessel under construction and the shots over the cooling tower are great! Nice choice of music too!

I don't want to start a side debate about the pros/cons of nuclear electricity, but I just have to said I would be much more concerned living close to a coal power plant (and you might have one close to you) than living close to a nuclear.

Facts:
-Coal burning subproducts are radioactive too and you breathe them.
-Background radiation in the surroundings of a nuclear plant are lower than on the surroundings of a coal plant.
-Cancer (specially lung cancer) happens more often on people living close to a coal power plant.
-No relation has been found between cancer and living close to a nuclear power plant.
-If a nuclear power plant blows up, it doesn't really matter if you're close or not.


By the way, the one on the video was never completely built, so... no radiation there (other than the natural background radiation)
