Since mankind entered the road of scientific and Technological Development hundreds of years ago, human civilization has ushered in a period of rapid development. The continuous emergence of various scientific and technological products has made people’s living standards higher and higher. Human beings have also realized the dream of flying to the sky, stepped out of the earth and began to explore the universe.
As the saying goes, everything has its two sides, so does science and technology. It can bring happiness and destruction to human beings. The rapid development of science and technology not only gives birth to many beautiful things, such as home appliances, networks, mobile phones, computers, etc., they bring convenience to people. But the same rapid development of science and technology also gave birth to some weapons that can seriously threaten the earth and human beings, such as nuclear weapons that people talk about.
Since scientists discovered nuclear energy, the research and exploration of nuclear energy has accelerated. At the beginning, people did not know how powerful nuclear energy was. Until the end of the Second World War, the United States dropped two atomic bombs on Japan. Its powerful destructive power shocked the world. At this time, people knew that human beings had created the devil.
The most terrible thing about nuclear energy is its radiation. Although nuclear bombs are generally not easy to use, the application of nuclear energy has already begun. For example, in our common nuclear power station, the power generation of a nuclear power station is terrible, far exceeding that of other types of power stations.
Although nuclear power plant can bring a lot of power generation to human beings, it is also very dangerous. Once an accident leads to nuclear leakage, the nuclear radiation will be very terrible. I believe many friends have heard of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant leak. It was a nuclear disaster in 1986. This disaster made thousands of people suffer from cancer, turned a once densely populated area into a ghost city, and set up a forbidden area of 2600 square miles.
After the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, the whole city has become a forbidden area for human beings. Usually, no one dares to enter it except a few scientific researchers who will wear anti radiation suits for research. This place has been completely blocked. From here, we have to sigh: the harm of nuclear radiation to human body is really great.
Now more than 30 years later, what about the Chernobyl nuclear leakage zone? Is it still a barren place without any life? Maybe many people think that the areas polluted by nuclear radiation can affect the environment for hundreds of years in the future, and no living things can live in them safely. Is this really the case? Of course not.
Although the Chernobyl area is a restricted area for human beings, it is not a restricted area for living things. In fact, shortly after the Chernobyl nuclear leak, some living things have entered the area. These living things are all kinds of animals, including wolves, wild boars, bears and so on. Seeing this, we once again sigh: Although human beings are intelligent life, their physical quality is far worse than that of many animals.
Wolves are a kind of animals with strong survival ability in nature. They like to live in groups. Although there are many natural enemies of wolves, there are also many natural enemies eaten by wolves, such as tigers, lions, elephants and other fierce animals. As long as they are targeted by wolves, it is very dangerous. It can be said that in nature, there are no animals that wolves dare not attack.
In addition to living in groups, wolves have a strong ability to adapt to the environment. Take the Chernobyl nuclear radiation area as an example. The animals that live most are wolves. Instead of dying because of nuclear radiation, they quickly adapt to the environment and live very well.
Seeing that wolves can live so safely in the Chernobyl area, scientists naturally have a great interest in it, so they wear a GPS collar to monitor the activities of these wolves. One of the reasons for doing this is to study the survival of Wolves under the influence of nuclear radiation, and the other is to constantly monitor these wolves to avoid them running out of the nuclear radiation area. We should know that the animals living here are now the sources of nuclear pollution, and once they run out, they may bring some bad consequences.
Although most wolves don’t run out of this area, last year, scientists tracked and found a 3-year-old young wild wolf far away from the Chernobyl radiation forbidden area and across Ukraine. A wild wolf in the radiation zone ran out, which made scientists nervous and began to look for it everywhere. Later, scientists found that the GPS locator of the wolf was always in the same position and did not move. There are two possible situations, one is that the wolf has died, the other is that the wolf broke away from the GPS locator and went to another place.
So, in the end, the wolf is missing. For many people, they will worry about whether the wild wolf running out of the radiation zone will bring nuclear radiation to human beings and affect human health once it enters into human life? In this regard, scientists have also explained that the amount of radiation in the Chernobyl nuclear radiation zone has been greatly reduced after more than 30 years of self purification.
This wild wolf is relatively young, and it carries a very small amount of nuclear radiation. Even if it accidentally runs outside to have a certain contact with human beings, it will not cause any harm to human body. We should know that the human body itself has a certain amount of maximum radiation that can be tolerated by nuclear radiation. It does not mean that as long as we touch a little radiation, we will have any diseases and so on.
Although the Chernobyl nuclear leak has brought great disaster to human beings, it has also brought very good research samples to human beings. By studying the ecological situation of the Chernobyl region, we can have a better understanding of the impact of nuclear radiation, so as to develop better radiation protection measures in the future. For scientists, they hope to find the reason why wolves and other animals can be immune to nuclear radiation.
If we can find out why wolves and other animals are not afraid of nuclear radiation, maybe we can develop relevant vaccines, and then inject such vaccines to completely immunize them against nuclear radiation. If we have such a major invention, it will be a great blessing for those who work in nuclear power plants, nuclear experiments and other places. At that time, when we enter the nuclear work area, we no longer need to wear anti radiation clothing.
In fact, by studying the animals and plants in the Chernobyl area, scientists found that the immunity of plants to nuclear radiation is stronger than that of animals, because the plants here are not affected by nuclear radiation at all and can still flourish. At present, scientists do not know what makes plants not afraid of nuclear radiation.
It can be seen from this that the Chernobyl nuclear radiation zone is now a treasure ground for scientists and a natural experimental site. Perhaps more important discoveries will be made in the near future.
