On 26 April 1986 at 1.23am, a reactor at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Soviet Ukraine exploded. The blast contaminated over half of Europe with radioactive fallout and took the world to the brink of nuclear annihilation.

Join the Harvard University professor as he takes us on a tour-de-force history of the tragedy that served as a cause of, but also the perfect metaphor for, the collapse of the Soviet Union.

This event is presented by the UNSW Centre for Ideas and is a part of the UNSW Grand Challenge on Trust.
