Atlas Obscura brings to attention Bionerd23's YouTube channel, featuring a series of video-diaries of the young anonymous woman as she explores Chernobyl's Exclusion Zone. It's amazing to watch her navigate this postapocalyptic landscape with ease, familiarity, and a fearless but respectful understanding of radioactivity.
Nothing is too radioactive or risky for her. She has shown herself getting injected with the radionuclide technetium, eating radioactive apples from a tree in Chernobyl, being chased by a possibly rabid fox, and picking up fragments of the nuclear plant’s reactor fuel with her bare hands. When a freakishly large catfish appears on camera, she calmly explains that it’s probably not a mutant—“They are just that way because nobody catches them,” she says in a video, watching a six-foot-long catfish, eerily like a shark, swim around a murky pool of water.
