Operation Morning Light

A documentary podcast series from Imperative Entertainment and Vespucci

Available on Apple and Spotify



Operation Morning Light tells the true story of Cosmos 954, a nuclear-powered Soviet espionage satellite that crashed into the Northwest Territories of Canada in 1978.


The crash scattered radioactive debris across the lands of the Dene, Metis, and Inuit peoples.



A massive recovery operation, codenamed Morning Light, was deployed by the American and Canadian militaries to find the debris.



But though the mission was termed a success, in the years since, the communities in the debris field have noticed troubling changes -- mutations in fish and wildlife, and an epidemic of cancer.



This eight-part documentary series reconstructs the rise and fall of Cosmos 954, and the legacy it left behind.
