No "Hero of the Soviet Union Gold Star" was awarded to Stanislav Petrov for being instrumental in preventing a nuclear war between the USSR and USA when he suspected a glitch in information being relay by a Russian Early Warning Satellite which mistakingly detected a beaming sunrise for an incoming American missile ...

Petrov died on 19 May 2017 from hypostatic pneumonia, though it was not widely reported until September.

Thanks THH, I read about this man, whom of course we will never meet. He went by his own thoughts instead of indoctrination by a system that was just as bad as any other side. A beautiful, thoughtful and brave human being.

Thank you, Stanislav Petrov.
