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."

In Russia, plane rides you.

A UTair flight froze to the ground at Igarka airport in Siberia on Tuesday, and passengers had to get out and push the 30-ton aircraft to get it moving again.

One of the men in the video is heard saying: "Real men can plant a tree, build a house, and push a plane," according to the Siberian Times.

The temperatures in the region above the Arctic Circle hit below 52C, and the brakes froze because they used the wrong kind of grease.
