Who melt Chernobyl down

Methodology & Culture

The series of events and human errors that caused the situation at Chernobyl to go out of control, the bad decisions that led to the disaster.

We talk from the perspective of the engineers, and the series of unfolding events. All wrong decisions has a why. To understand it, you have to put yourself on the shoes of the makers.

We analyse the series of factors that led people to take them and how we can relate and learn from them.
