So basically they thought they'd be able to use it like a toxic radioactive dump site & save a few quid, not taking Global Warming into account as we weren't as aware of it back then.

There's another radioactive dump on some Pacific island where they put a big concrete dome on top of it & now they're worried it's leaking out, Now I think about it I might of read about that one in this thread?.

Duga radar

This was very interesting.


---QUOTATION---
"Amid growing fears of nuclear war some claimed that the low-frequency "Russian signal" could change human behavior and destroy brain cells.

Was there a connection to the nearby Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant? It's speculated that the doomed facility was built in the particular area in order to provide the enormous radar with energy.
Supporters of this idea point out that the Duga radar cost the Soviet Union twice as much as the power plant, despite its questionable military capabilities.

The explosion at Chernobyl on April 26, 1986 was the beginning of the end for the Duga array. The complex was closed due to the radiation contamination and its workers evacuated..."
---END QUOTATION---



This above seems to be the inspiration for much of the Stalker SoC plot (a bit ironic though that the Duga Radar itself didn't fill any function when you approach it in Clear Sky's Limansk level). The pile of decoders in picture 10 look interesting too.
