I worked with a guy whose graduate advisor helped put out Chernobyl. It killed him (slowly). He thought it would when he did it. He didn't really have a choice. He was ordered to do it. And if he hadn't, a lot more people would have died. The impression I got was that he was a reluctant and disgruntled hero.

But a radiation detector wouldn't have helped. It was a nuclear power plant. He knew he was screwed.
