Today in History: Ukraine Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster in 1986

On this day in 1986, an explosion and fire at the No. 4 reactor of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine resulted in a nuclear meltdown sending radioactivity into the atmosphere. The radiation fallout spread throughout Europe. Within 48 hours, monitoring stations in Sweden, Finland and Norway began reporting sudden high discharges of radioactivity in the atmosphere. After two days, the Soviet Union, via the official news agency, Tass, admitted there has been an accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine. The Chernobyl disaster is considered the largest nuclear accident in history.
