If you are interested in Chernobyl you will love this video. I had only heard of SKALA in the past, but nothing actually about it. This video gives a really good look into SKALA and it's operations.

In this episode of Computers of Chornobyl series, we will talk about the mighty SKALA system, that controlled the RBMK reactors. This is the first-ever documentary about its design, architecture, operation, and software. It also tells the story of how it was preserved for posterity and reveals, what is common between it... and a control computer of Apollo spacecrafts.

It took us nearly half a year to collect the information and technical details about SKALA vintage computer, and what we uncovered has completely reshaped our understanding of how the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant operated. We sincerely hope you will enjoy it and learn as much as we have!
