People do some pretty dumb things for YouTube videos. Derek Muller does them for the sake of science, though. The host of Veritasium, a YouTube channel about science, recently visited the most radioactive places on Earth for a TV show about how Uranium and radioactivity affected the modern world. And he lived to tell about it.
Of course, the TV host — and presumably the crew — wore protective gear. It still sounds basically crazy to stomp your way through the site of a nuclear meltdown for the sake of
science YouTube views. [Neatorama]
