Two almost unknown nuclear disasters


Two almost unknown nuclear disasters

On January 23rd, just three days after John. F. Kennedy delivered his inaugural speech as the 35th President of the United States, one little-known event that could have changed American history in the most catastrophic way imaginable.
A refueling accident caused a B-52 bomber to break apart above a farm in Goldsboro, North Carolina, causing two 3.8 megaton nuclear bombs to plummet to the ground. Bar one small safety switch and a huge amount of luck, millions could have been killed. Accidents like this are known as ‘Broken Arrows’ and they have happened more than many people realize.

In 1957, a massive nuclear accident took place at the top-secret Mayak nuclear station in the Soviet Union. At the time, it was the largest nuclear disaster in history. So why has no one heard of it?
Despite its size, Soviet authorities managed to keep the accident a secret for almost four decades, and details of the devastating legacy of what is now known as the ‘Kyshtym disaster’ are still only just becoming clear today.
