1986 Chernobyl Accident
Three Mile Island and Chernobyl Nuclear Accidents : Alexander Hicks
Three Mile Island:
On March 28, 1979, a series of malfunctions and mistakes led to the worst nuclear accident the United States has ever expirienced, and nearly led to the worst of all possible disasters, nuclear meltdown:
This event started on March 28th, 1979, in Pennsylvannia, in the United States of America. This was the worst disaster in U.S. history, and has had long term effects on the surrounding area. The infant mortality rate in a 50 mile radius went up about 3% in the first year, and slowly declined. Wildlife in the area had stunted growth, and their population declined from where it was by about 7%. Although there were no direct deaths from radiation, cancer deaths in the area jumped 4%.
This infamous event will go down in history being called the "Three Mile Island Nuclear Accident".
On April 25th, 1986, the worst Nuclear Event in the world occured in the Soviet Union, specifically the Ukraine. This event occured because of the indiscisiveness of the operators and ignorant soviet officials. There were about 80 people who died directly from radiation, and about 40,000 additional deaths from cancer to date. The wildlife in the area had mutations and a lot of them died out, and most became endangered.
