The amazing thing is that only one
of Chernobyl's cores went up, and those were the immediate results, with radiation reaching all over the globe. The containment vessels are Fukushima's saving grace, even if they are leaking. It even took 2 years for Russia to put the "sarcophagus" on the busted reactor, and I understand they are still
working on a better solution.
Chernobyl was a way worse nuclear accident than Fukushima by a long shot.
