    I'm not sure where you can read it, but the Discovery channel did a great Zero-Hour episode that covers Dyatlov.

    If any of your friends, colleagues and family are still struggling to understand how an RBMK reactor explodes after watching Chernobyl, send them this.

    Don't forget the alt-text, which is arguably better:

    Just seen a brilliant documentary on Netflix called "Command and Control".

    It's about that time those crazy yanks allowed a dropped spanner to cause a Titan II missile to explode in it's silo, sending the thermonuclear wardhead flying out. Of course, the poor sods who risked (and in some cases gave) their lives to prevent things getting much, much worse got the official blame.

    Well worth 90 minutes of your time.
