The nuclear crisis in Japan has churned up memories of the Chernobyl meltdown, the worst nuclear accident in history. Miles O’Brien and crew returned last week to survey the scene, 25 years later. They took pictures of abandoned dolls, homes, amusement park rides and a daycare facility near the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the neighboring town of Pripyat.

His report on the subject aired Tuesday night.

Here are the images from their trip:
