The explosion gets all the attention, but just before that I think a nasty cloud of hydrazine and/or something else drifted across the countryside.

The PBS program is based on this book:

https://www.amazon.com/Command...lusion/dp/0143125788



Many scenes were filmed at the only intact Titan II complex (54 were built) outside of Tucson.

I got a short tour 25 years ago, someday I'll return for the five hour top-to-bottom tour.

Saw the thread title and that was exactly what I thought it was. That happened when I was in 3rd grade, and I wrote a report on it.

Thanks for the heads up. Command and Control is a very good read.

Just because you can,

Look forward to watching.
The book was very interesting. Hard to believe such a simple mistake could start the chain events.

This program may be delayed if your PBS station carries the POTUS farewell speech.
