Quote:No.3 reactor top priority at stricken Japan plant
The operator of Japan's quake-stricken nuclear power complex said on Wednesday that the No.3 reactor at its Fukushima Daiichi plant was its top priority and showed the highest radiation levels at the site.

The thing is, when one of the reactors ejects it core into the earth, as soon as it hits the water table there will be an explosion that may be heard all the way around the planet. The other nuke plants will essentially vaporize.
So will Japan.
I have doubts it will be inhabitable after this event, not to mention the earth went of its axis 10" after the quake, what happens when you put a nuclear rocket inside a dirt basketball?
I for one am quite concerned.
Quote:Japan's science ministry has observed radiation levels of up to 0.33 millisieverts per hour in areas about 20 kilometers northwest of the quake-damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
Experts say exposure to such radiation for 3 hours would result in absorption of 1 millisievert, or the maximum considered safe for 1 year.
The ministry gauged radiation levels for 10 minutes from 8:40 PM local time on Tuesday at 3 places in Fukushima Prefecture, whose residents are being instructed to stay indoors. The measurements produced readings as low as 0.22 millisieverts per hour.
It is not known whether these levels have changed since the measurements.
A former chief of the Radiation Effects Research Foundation, Shigenobu Nagataki, said radiation at such levels does not immediately affect human health. But he said that if such levels continue to be observed, authorities must review ways to evacuate people.
The ministry said it also observed maximum radiation levels of 0.0253 millisieverts in areas 30 to 60 kilometers from the plant on Wednesday morning. The levels are slightly higher than normal

Certainly seems to be a massive cover up eh? GE and the Japan gov are doing to the planet what BP did to the Gulf of Mexico, colluding to minimize how serious it really is. What can one do? I feel really funny this morning, almost dizzy and faintly nauseated. Oh I know there's no way any rads got here yet, if they do, I just feel odd.
This...is going to be a rough period in history. I just don't want to end up history in the process.
sorry no link..live tv
Quote:TOKYOâ€”Efforts to extinguish smoldering spent fuel were thwarted Wednesday, after high radiation levels above forced the cancellation of a plan to dump water from a helicopter on the power plant at the center of Japan's escalating nuclear crisis.So I guess they have had to scrap the helicopter plan?
