I did not know about current concerns re

Chernobyl, whose makeshift shelter has five years left in its lifespan and still leaks radiation.

So, they are having a fund raiser to help get money for

a 105-meter high arched roof that, once assembled on a field next to the damaged reactor, will be rolled into place and sealed for 100 years. After that, workers will be able to dismantle the old structure from inside the protective cowl.

Sealed for 100 years? Not auguring well. Apparently they have money to get started, but after that, well, times are tough.
