Description: The author, in a series of previous articles, designed the AB Dome made of transparent thin film supported by a small additional air overpressure to cover a city or other important large installations or sub-regions. The AB Dome not only keeps the outside atmospheric conditions, such as inclement weather, away from the interior of the inflatable Dome, but can shield a city from radioactive dust, chemical, bacterial weapons and even partially from aviation and nuclear bombs. In present article the author offers a variation in which a damaged nuclear station can be quickly covered by the cheap inflatable dome. By containing the radioactive dust from the damaged nuclear station, the danger zone is reduced to about 2 km rather than large regions which requires the resettlement of huge masses of people and which stops industry in large areas.
