The Physics of the Chernobyl accident


What is it about?

This highly readable explanation of what went wrong at Chernobyl neatly slips into the gap in the market between the densely worded official reports of the accident and the human story presented in many popular books and so intriguingly retold in the recent TV mini-series, Chernobyl. Did it rouse your curiosity to really understand what really went wrong that April day in 1986, and how it was allowed to happen? Written by industry insider Keith Pearce, “The Physics of Chernobyl” makes fascinating reading, clearly setting out the background to the accident in a way which is accessible to the student of physics as well as those members of the general public who have a basic grasp of physics and are keen to understand the details of the accident.

Review: "This is a good read" Michael K. Stenstrom

Who should read it

Any one who has an interest in reactor physics, nuclear physics or the Chernobyl accident.
