Stanislav Petrov - The Man Who Saved the World. James Spencer tells us an inspirational story of split second decisions, combined with bravery and humanity, ultimately leading to one man potentially saving our world from World War 3.

The story takes place on September 26th, 1983. The Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union has been going on for about 40 years. Stanislav Petrov is in charge of monitoring the Early warning missile command center, which warns of incoming Nuclear launches.

Suddenly, his computer system shows him that the United States has launched a Nuclear warhead at the Soviet Union. The actions of this man in the following minutes potentially decided what the world looks like today. Potentially saving us from full out Nuclear War.

Please let us know who else you would like for James to make a video about in the comments.
