A man who saved the world
Do you know who is the man on the picture? He is a Russian who saved the world of nuclear war in 1983. To be honest, I didn't know about that before. He was a military. If he would have taken a different decision I didn't graduate from the school. He passed away on 19 of May 2017. This picture taken in 2016.
Someone wrote in the comment, that it was known the system was new and prone to glitches and that a single launch was unlikely, and the most likely to be an error. I think this man did not serve in the Soviet army. )) Many people at that time believed that a nuclear war is possible. Like now..
