Sadly, the brilliant actor Harry Dean Stanton, 91.



Suffering from a small case of mood poisoning, must be something I hate.

Stanislav Petrov, who averted possible nuclear war

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-41314948

A former Soviet military officer credited with averting a possible nuclear disaster at the peak of the Cold War has died at the age of 77.

Stanislav Petrov was on duty at a Russian nuclear early warning centre in 1983 when computers wrongly detected incoming missiles from the US.

He took the decision that they were a false alarm and did not report them to his superiors.

His actions, which came to light years later, possibly prevented nuclear war.
