As part of a recent story for "60 Minutes," filmmaker Danny Cooke shot this haunting footage of Chernobyl and the abandoned city of Prypiat in Ukraine.
The nuclear meltdown was 30 years ago, but the reactor, which was simply buried in a tomb, is still very dangerous. According to the CBS report, there is a project underway to come up with a more permanent solution, but it's three quarters of a billion dollars short of its goal.
Cooke calls it "one of the most interesting and dangerous places I've been."
