Image Description

The Fukushima Liquidators, aka 'Fukushima 50', were the workers and volunteers who sacrifice themselves and where exposed to the radiation in the attempts to repair the damaged cores and contein the radiation.
They were equiped with protection suits, masks, radiation-meters and even air supplys.
In some of them were found levels of radiation 100.000 times higher than the maximum level allowed in human beings; other ones had genetic alterations that increases the probability to develope cancer in the future.

Let this be a little homage to them.
