Stanislav Petrov, who averted possible nuclear war, dies at 77

A former Soviet military officer credited with averting a possible nuclear disaster at the peak of the Cold War has died at the age of 77.


Stanislav Petrov was on duty at a Russian nuclear early warning centre in 1983 when computers wrongly detected incoming missiles from the US.

He took the decision that they were a false alarm and did not report them to his superiors.

His actions, which came to light years later, possibly prevented nuclear war.

Petrov died at his home in Moscow in May but his death has only now been made public.

In an interview with the BBC in 2013, Petrov told how he had received computer readouts in the early hours of the morning of 26 September 1983 suggesting several US missiles had been launched.

If he had been wrong, the first nuclear blasts would have happened minutes later.

"Twenty-three minutes later I realised that nothing had happened. If there had been a real strike, then I would already know about it. It was such a relief," he recalled.

A later investigation concluded that Soviet satellites had mistakenly identified sunlight reflecting on clouds as the engines of intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Petrov, who retired with the rank of lieutenant colonel, died on 19 May but news of his passing became widely known only this month, thanks to a chance phone call.

German film-maker Karl Schumacher, who first brought Petrov's story to an international audience, telephoned him to wish him a happy birthday on 7 September only to be informed by his son, Dmitry Petrov, that he had passed away.

Mr Schumacher announced the death online and it was eventually picked up by media outlets.

^^^60 Minutes reported last year about another false alarm on a US nuclear sub that somebody fortunately decided wasn't the real deal. A practice exercise was misinterpreted. Makes me sleep well at night knowing these little mistakes are possible.

Saying goodbye to Hef is like losing a friend I've known from earliest teen years; and probably before that!

Have enjoyed his selections since Cathy Larmouth in 1981.

This is a weird one!
Turns out he died the same day the NY Times reported Don Trump Jr had ditched his Secret Service detail. A week before Don Jr had demanded he be left alone over objections of both Secret Service and other gov officials. Then the day that Horner was reported dead was the same newsday that Don Jr decided to let Secret Service start trailing him again.
Knowing, by his own admission, that Don Jr was willing to listen to stories about dirt on HRC by foreign nationals, and
knowing that others in Trump's campaign repeated fake news stories manufactured by this Horner character, so long as they supported their own perceived narrative, and
now finding themselves in legal investigation over all this fake news stuff - and facebook and twitter too! - and
wanting these sorts of stories to now disappear, makes such coincidences seem very suspicious.

To say there is a connection would be irresponsible, but to mention they coincide is not.
