Thirty-three years after the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe confounded the entire world, we’re revisiting it to piece together the specifics of what exactly happened on that fateful day in 1986. Many books have been published about this man-made disaster, but HBO‘s recent Chernobyl mini-series has gotten everyone intrigued even more.

The Russian government had tried to keep it away from the public eye, but in the end, it was not something that could be kept tucked away from the masses and the world. Sooner or later, secrets will come out, and the time is now. Learn about the tragedy that befell Chernobyl, and understand why this part of history should never repeat itself ever again.

It’s The Worst Man-Made Disaster The World Has Ever Seen

Taking into account the devastation and widespread damage caused by a catastrophe is the basis upon which the International Nuclear Event Scale (INES) has rated Chernobyl. As of today, there are only two events that have the highest possible rating, and the Chernobyl disaster is at the top with a rating of seven.

The year 2011’s Fukushima Daiichi in Japan is the other event, and in both cases, a significant amount of lethal contamination leaked into the surroundings. The catastrophe also let out more or less 100 times more radiation than the atomic bombs that were dropped during WWII on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
