That night 37 years ago, thanks to him on duty, he avoided a world war!
The economic, political, military and other fields of a country can reflect its recent development. Once upon a time, China needed to rely on the technology of western countries in many aspects. Since China’s comprehensive strength has been improved, it has made breakthroughs in many fields, especially in the space field. More and more probes have been launched. Many astronauts bring back a lot of data and information after entering space, so that human beings have a new understanding of space.
During World War II, the United States dropped an atomic bomb in order to attack Japan. As you can imagine, the power of an atomic bomb led to the collapse of houses and heavy losses, refreshing the human understanding of war. Throughout history, the United States not only dropped atomic bombs on Japan, but also almost dropped them on the Soviet Union. The United States has always regarded the Soviet Union as its enemy. As long as the Soviet Union develops in a certain field, the United States will follow suit. Fortunately, this is a misunderstanding caused by the Soviet Union itself. Fortunately, some people found that they stopped losses in time, otherwise a big war would not be avoided. So what happened behind this? That night 37 years ago, thanks to him on duty, he avoided a world war!
The United States and the Soviet Union are in an open and secret struggle, especially in the development of nuclear weapons. Everyone is competing one after another. Whoever develops the most advanced weapons first will take the lead. In order to prevent the United States from attacking the Soviet Union, the Soviet Union has been fully prepared. There is a man named Stanislav Petrov in the former Soviet Union whose main job is to detect the trend of nuclear weapons. When he finds anything wrong, he has to report it to the higher authorities.
In 1983, when he was on duty, he suddenly received a missile warning, which showed that the United States had dropped an atomic bomb on the Soviet Union. When he received the news, he felt extremely flustered. However, he calmed down and did not report the matter to his superiors at the first time, and began to think about the accuracy of the news.
It is clearly shown on the radar screen that the United States is launching five atomic bombs towards the Soviet Union. The more he thinks about it, the more strange he feels. This is not in line with common sense. If the United States wants to launch an atomic bomb, it must be fully prepared, instead of only launching five atomic bombs, which has no great effect at all. His confusion leads him not to do anything rash, so he concludes that the alarm system is out of order When there was a problem, he checked it quickly. Finally, it turned out that the United States did not drop an atomic bomb on the Soviet Union, but there was a problem with the alarm system. Everything was a false alarm.
If he was not on duty at that time, the war between the Soviet Union and the United States might start, and the consequences would be unimaginable. Even the earth would be greatly destroyed, and both sides had very strong nuclear weapons. Once the two sides broke out, their power would be extraordinary and very tolerable, and most importantly, it would cause casualties. Thanks to him, this war could be avoided What’s your opinion on the outbreak of the war? You can leave a message for interaction.
