35 years ago it was the day after the worst nuclear accident in history.

In the days after the disaster, the Soviet Union government attempted to cover up the incident, and they refused to report what had happened.

However, it wasn't long before other countries could tell something wasn't right. Monitor stations in Sweden reported abnormally high levels of radiation in the wind.

Officials pressed the Soviets for an explanation and the Soviet government eventually had to admit there had been an accident at Chernobyl.

It sparked an international outcry from countries all over the world about the dangers posed by the radioactive emissions.
