This Month's Topic: Fact vs Fiction in HBO's Chernobyl

Presented by Chris Perfetti, Assistant Professor, Dept of Nuclear Engineering University of New Mexico 

HBO's recent "Chernobyl" mini-series delves into the history behind the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, the most deadly nuclear power accident to ever occur, but how much of the series is accurate and how much is fictionalized?  

Dr. Perfetti will discuss the fact VS fiction behind HBO's Chernobyl mini-series in hopes of demystifying the Chernobyl disaster and opening a dialog on nuclear reactor physics in an approachable (and beer-friendly) way.

Discussions are free.  Food and drink are available for purchase at the event.

Thanks to the continued support of UNM, Explora and the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History.
