On this day, April 26th, 1986...

A major nuclear accident occurred at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine ...

Quote:
The disaster at the was the product of a flawed Soviet reactor design coupled with serious mistakes made by the plant operators. It was a direct consequence of Cold War isolation and the resulting lack of any safety culture.

At the time nuclear scientists believed that the radiation would last 500 years.

Quote:
Twenty-three years after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, Solo East Travel offers an ecological tour of the power plant. Visitors get to see a reactor, the "dead town" of Pripyat, and the "red forest" where pine trees turned reddish orange because of radiation.

I wonder if the nuclear scientists went back and changed all of their papers and books

But if there’s a God aren’t you grateful to Her for having allowed you to spend most of your life between nuclear wars

More like dumb luck and random fate.
