The Computer Simulation that Almost Started WW III

Post by bdahm on Tue Feb 17, 2015 11:15 pm

Remember the 1983 movie WarGames? The film is about a computer "game" with the potential to start thermonuclear war. But strangely this scenario is more truth than fiction. Because in 1979 programmers at NORAD almost started World War III when they accidentally ran a computer simulation of a Soviet attack.
