What Happens During a Nuclear Meltdown?: Scientific American
Quote:

Without a steady coolant supply, a hot reactor core will continuously boil off the water surrounding it until the fuel is no longer immersed. If fuel rods remain uncovered, they may begin to melt, and hot, radioactive fuel can pool at the bottom of the vessel containing the reactor. In a worst-case meltdown scenario the puddle of hot fuel could melt through the steel containment vessel and through subsequent barriers meant to contain the nuclear material, exposing massive quantities of radioactivity to the outside world.
The more you know...

This is the kind of **** that makes people think there is a cover-up or confusion.

1st operation

Japan Self-Defense Forces dropped 4 huge buckets of seawater from helicopters in this morning. Lead plates were installed at the bottom of the helicopters to shield radiation and crew members wore radiation protection suits.

* 2nd operation

The National Police Agency tried to pour water from the ground with pumper truck in the evening. However, they were not able to come close because of high radiation and water did not reach the pool.

* 3rd operation

Japan Self-Defense Forces poured 30 tons of water from the ground with 5 special pumper trucks from 19:45 to 20:09. Because these trucks are special, they were able to do this operation

There is one part where they actually hold the camera steady and you can see the extent of the damage around and to reactor #3

WHY HAVE THEY NOT YET SENT IN CHARLIE SHEEN?

JoMo 03-17-2011 11:03

Oh those silly Chinese buying salt.

We had reports earlier that people were panic-buying salt in China to protect themselves from radiation emanating from Japan, even though the country is not affected. One Chinese woman told the BBC: "My family called from my hometown and said they'd looked for salt like crazy and couldn't get any. I was so surprised. I said: 'But isn't there loads of salt around?' and they said, 'No, because of the explosion in Japan'. I saw we had no salt, so I ran down to the supermarket, and people had already snatched it all up, there was none there either."

Nagasaki survivor calmly waits out nuclear crisis in Tokyo. "I may be a bit too callous about this due to the fact that I was really heavily exposed to radiation, but I don't think this is anything to turn pale over," she told Reuters uk.reuters.com

The quotes from survivors of this disaster vs. those you hear from other disasters are ridiculous. The Japanese are just so practical and understanding.

Detox.enD 03-17-2011 11:20

i can respect that.

it's certainly better than the emotional, uneducated, or greedy responses you typically see.

17 March: During the morning, Self-Defense Force helicopters dropped four containers of water on the spent fuel pools of Units 3 and 4.[35] In the afternoon it was reported that the Unit 4 spent fuel pool is full with water and none of the fuel rods are exposed.[36]

JoMo 03-17-2011 11:42

Latest NISA report is that the rods are only partially covered with water. Also, that odd report on the containment vessel of #2 as being 75 kpa.

More disconcerting is the fact that there are no measurements for any of the pool temperatures. Equipment knocked out? Malfunctioning?

Flyersfan 03-17-2011 11:59

Lmao I watched those water drops

If any water actually got into the pools at all I will **** a robot

It's either knocked out, out of batteries, not being reported or malfunctioning.

Also the JAIF report:

i think each bucket was like 7 tons of water though....it did look like they missed a lot...but i think that viewing angle was a bit deceiving

Uh.

High radiation found outside Fukushima exclusion zone - NYPOST.com

High radiation levels have been detected 18.6 miles (30 kilometers) from the plant, beyond the 12.4-mile (20-kilometer) zone designated by authorities, broadcaster NHK reported.

Japan's science ministry said exposure to the levels detected for a period of six hours would be the equivalent of the maximum safe level a person could absorb in a year.

Even then I'm guessing that there's a chance that the cooling systems are fried/broken/etc anyway?

The chernobyl exclusion zone is 30km
