Disasters

Whether due to forces of nature or human error, disasters happen. We remember them in hopes that they won’t repeat themselves.

Chernobyl Disaster (April 26, 1986) star
In 1979, TMI in Middletwon, PA, had a meltdown that released virtually no radiation into the atmosphere. Still, the government took precautions and evacuated the residents. In 1986, Chernobyl's reactor number 4 exploded, but nothing was really done about it. What caused the disaster?

Hindenburg Disaster (May 6, 1937) star
The explosion of the Hindenburg was one of the greatest airship disasters of all time, though, it was not the worst one by far. What was the cause? Could it have been avoided? Just how bad was it?

Meltdown at TMI (March 28, 1979) star
The worst kind of nuclear accident--a meltdown--occurred at one of the nation´s leading nuclear facilities, Three Mile Island in Middletown, PA. What really happened that day and how did it change operations?

Remembering the Challenger (January 28, 1986) star
On January 28, 1986, five men and two women smiled and waved to cameras as the entered the Space Shuttle Challenger. Within two minutes after launch, however, their lives ended in a disaster that rocked the 1980´s.
