    Default The Jupiter Factory, Pripyat, (Chernobyl Exclusion Zone), Ukraine - Oct 2016


    The Jupiter Factory, Pripyat, (Chernobyl Exclusion Zone), Ukraine - Oct 2016

    So now my huge backlog takes me into my second time to The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. I visited in October 2016 for a four day tour which took us to many places which one might not see on a normal tourist trail to the zone.

    It was an amazing experience to see The Zone again and each day was packed, getting up at 06:30 to catch the 07:40 train from Slavutych to The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Station, and back to our rented house in Slavutych (the town built to house those who lost their homes in Pripyat) at around 20:00/21:00.

    The Jupiter Factory Opened in Pripyat in 1980 and was known for hiring the more academic people in Pripyat and Chernobyl. It was known for making electronics and Magnetic Tape, but this was all just a fácade and it actually made Semiconducter Products for the Military.

    It closed shortly after the Chernobyl Disaster in 1986, but reopened before too long and remained operative until 1996 in radioactive conditions as one of many Radio-Logical Laboratories around Pripyat.
