Science Policy Movie Screening
The Man Who Saved the World
Date: Wednesday, February 4th
Time: 7:00 pm
Place: Marquee Theater, Union South
Speaker: American Nuclear Society, UW Madison Chapter
Abstract: Most people have no idea that, for a few terrifying minutes in 1983, humanity’s fate hung on one man’s decision to follow his conscience. Petrov, a Russian lieutenant colonel, sacrificed his own career—and prevented all-out nuclear war—by disobeying the chain of command and following his conscience. The world should know how close we all came to disaster and that the same threat remains today. Free tickets available at: <a href=""></a>
