The man who saved the world from World War III

Nearly 30 years ago, the world was on the brink of a third global conflagration, as the so-called major powers threatened nuclear missiles. Thanks to the intervention of a man who set out to prevent humanity from being extinguished by what was called “The Cold War” at the time, we were all saved.


A help from heaven

That man who stopped the war was Stanislav Petrov, a lieutenant colonel in the army of the Soviet Union, who in just 37 minutes stopped the nuclear hecatombe. It all happened on September 26, 1983, when the Americans were willing to do everything against the Soviets and vice versa.

Petrov, who was at the forefront of military operations, specifically in charge of the Soviet network of early warning satellites over the United States, realized via a Russian satellite that the Americans had launched a missile and immediately had to report what happened.


Fortunately, this man’s Consciousness was activated instantly and he reflected that he should say nothing, or else the entire planet would succumb to the atomic fire of the Apocalypse.

But things got even worse when Soviet satellites recorded four more launches, by the Americans. The funny thing about it all is that the information was false and Petrov noticed it.

As if it were a coincidence, at that moment the Earth was entering a conjunction with the Sun and Russian satellites. But according to Colonel Stanislav’s orders, humanity would have disappeared. Out of contempt, this hero was reprimanded in his military exercise, but thanks to his boldness and reflection, humanity continues to live.

These were too stressful times, because the fate of the planet was in the hands of a single subject, at 12:14 minutes in the morning of September 26, in the bunker of Serpukhov-15. According to the satellite’s misguided data, Russia would be hit in just 20 minutes by those US missiles.

If this soldier does not pre-analyze what was happening with the position of the stars and is filled with adrenaline, in addition to faithfully following his duty, he would have activated the red button that represented the end.

But on the other hand, Petrov was congratulated and now happily remembered, after the incident. He said, “If i had been rewarded, they should have punished others.” In 2004, he received a $1000 award from the World Citizens Association, a reward for his heroic performance that halted a major catastrophe.

In some other similar events, including catastrophic events at the level of nature, a strange intervention that we might call “of the universe” or of life, or of God, whatever you want to call, has been appreciated; but that is, a superior aid that has prevented numerous occasions, humanity from being extinguished.

Other opportunities such as rocket launches into space have featured strange unidentified flying objects that gave the impression of intervening, since out of nowhere the launch is thwarted.
