If this interrupts Sasuke vs Raikage the terrorists win.

what if osama bin laden did this :scared:

Basic Nuclear Plant Safety Primer for Everyone.

The Fukushima Daiichi power plant is a Boiling Water Reactor. It is both moderated (what causes fission) and cooled (what stops the nuclear fuel/waste from getting so hot it melts) by water.

The plant was scrammed (immediately stopped) after the earthquake by inserting control rods (boron-infused 'rods' that prevent further fissions from taking place (by eating up all the neutrons necessary to initiate fission). This happened successfully. The plant is "shut down."

However, after the plant is shut down, there are still certain elements called "delayed neutron precursors" that will STILL released neutrons for some time period after the plant is shut down. These are what cause heat to accrue in a reactor that should theoretically be "shut down". This is why cooling needs to be provided in a typical 2nd generation light-water reactor (what most reactors in the world are) for a good while after shutdown.

Without cooling water, the likely "worst case" will be the reactor pressure vessel (RPV) building up heat, which builds up pressure, which could cause a rupture of the vessel. The fuel rods will spill out radioactive contents, fires might break out, and the reactor is basically a lost cause.

And how does that affect the general populace in terms of radioactive dose?
-Not at all.

The RPV is surrounded by a containment facility designed from the ground up to withstand everything short of hydrogen bombs. Given the semi-spherical distance from the RPV an explosion would have to travel to break through the containment vessel, it is fundamentally impossible (given the energy density the RPV is capable of containing) for there to be straight up "radioactive smoke" or such getting outside of containment. The containment building is constructed to prevent EXACTLY this emergency.

So while this is a worrying emergency, and could represent billions of lost dollars a mess to clean up should the WORST come about, it will still not be another Chernobyl. And given the efforts underway to provide cooling and the fact that the fuel rods are still not exposed to air (When the real danger of fuel melting can occur), there is still time to stop this loss of coolent accident (LOCA).

So we SHOULD worry about this reactor problem, but not for the reason most anti-nuclear activists would have you believe.

Yeah but triple told me this is going to be chernobyl times 9/11 and we wont have dslrs for years

Wow, there is SO much suck in that video.

It's awesome, in the bad way.

In other news, Japan stops buying the laundry detergent "Tide" out of protest.

JoMo 03-11-2011 17:30

Koyodo: Residents within 10 KM of Nuclear plant in distress must evacuate.

Radiation could have already been released..

Huscarl 03-11-2011 17:33

I'm hoping the earthquake hurt Japanese car factories so that American auto companies do better :p:

samUwell 03-11-2011 17:39

i dont know about you guys but, i didnt see A Boeing 757 start this.

JoMo 03-11-2011 17:44

Radiation levels continuing to rise. Now 8 times above normal!

you take that back. subarus come from japan.

also everything is obviously just fine over there. what i mean to say is, "it's nothing a few different grains of sandpaper couldn't fix."

And thus, the writers for SyFy movies have 30 more years of material to work with now.

Diablo Escobar 03-11-2011 17:49

The repeated nuking of japan is probably going to cause some evolved nuke resistant Japanese army that will ultimately take over the world

JoMo 03-11-2011 17:50

Really hoping that's a typo on Kyodo.

Kyodo News
