Super Sarcophagus

Dan the Prodigal Roommate sent me that link about the building of the super-sarchophagus to enclose the destroyed chernobyl-4 complex and the existing sarcophagus which was constructed in great haste, and is in danger of falling apart.  It’s a pretty ingenous design, which eliminates the need to work exceptionally close to the existing structure, and will enclose the entire building.  If the original sarcophagus collapses, the radioactive dust plume will be contained in the new structure (presuming that the new structure is finished).
