A Drone in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone

Footage from the ruins.


If you'd like to get a glimpse of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone but don't feel like sneaking in illegally, check out this video from Danny Cooke, a photographer who gathered footage from the nuclear disaster site both in person and via drone:

Cooke put that film together while working on a recent 60 Minutes report on Chernobyl. For a transcript of that story—which includes interviews with people who actually live in the Zone—go here.
