Associate Professor Steve Skutnik delivers a lecture on the facts and fiction of the HBO hit show Chernobyl

The hugely popular HBO miniseries “Chernobyl” dramatizes the story of the 1986 nuclear accident; one of the worst human-made catastrophes in history. In response to the show, Steve Skutnik, Associate Professor with the Department of Nuclear Engineering, decided to fact-check the series. His talk, Chernobyl: Fallout, Facts, & Fiction, explored the scientific facts of the disaster. He also explained to our community the high improbability of this kind of accident happening in our backyard. 

OIT’s Webcasting Service was proud to webcast Skutnik’s informative and timely talk. The webcast, which was highly promoted on local media, is available on-demand.
