April 26 marks the 31st anniversary of the explosion at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant's Unit 4 reactor. Battelle researchers at PNNL were involved in an international consortium to look at long-term safety and containment of Unit 4. They led early designs for the arch steel structure called the New Safe Confinement, which was put into place late last year.
