    The Chernobyl disaster in 1986 “was the result of a flawed reactor design that was operated with inadequately trained personnel”. The accident occurred at the Chernobyl nuclear plant in Ukraine.

    At the time of the disaster, there was no safety procedures and it was the post-Cold War era.

    We don’t actually know the exact cause of the meltdown, but it was during a test of one of the reactor cores.  During the test, there was a sudden surge of power, which caused an explosion.  The heat melted the rods, and shot a could of radioactive waste into the surrounding area. 

    Although few people were killed by the explosion, the radiation damage was vast, and deaths estimate at 93,000 deaths.
