People tend to remember what happened at Chernobyl, but very
few will be able to tell you just what happened at Mayak.
This was the Kyshtym Disaster which happened on
September 29th 1957.
Long out of print the following book will tell you something
about just why it was hushed up at the time: –
Medvedev, Zhores A.
Nuclear disaster in the Urals.
It would be really good if we could have a series of events around
the world to mark the 55th anniversary of this disaster.
