Episode 21: Chernobyl - Part 2

With the echoes of the Atomic Age fading, the USSR undertook an ambitious plan to build a huge number of massive reactors all along its western border.  Viktor Brukhanov was tasked with building the first four reactors at the Chernobyl nuclear generating station, as well a city nearby called Pripyat.  Instead of generations of clean energy, the Soviets served up the worst nuclear accident in human history.  Shoddy construction, underqualified operators, and the Soviet mentality.  Chernobyl, April 26, 1986: Hell on earth.
