No-one seems to be singing, least of all the IAEA website, but I think the Japanese Reactor (No. 1 reactor of the quake-hit f*kushima No. 1 Plant) already had a partial Melt-Down. But that's inevitable if the core remains uncovered. What will happen is a pyramiding of the melted fissile materials into the sump below the pressure vessel. Structures are built down there to prevent it reaching critical mass and actually exploding like a bomb, or indeed going 'China Syndrome'.

The BBC reported that radiation levels of 1000× normal had been detected overnight UK time.

This turns out to be in the Control Room of the plant. So that was a scare Item to freak people out on top of the Earthquake. Bad reporters doing a good job at bad reporting.

Can you believe it?Your Stupid Forum blaster stops fukushima being followed.


A 1000× normal background makes regaining control of the runaway reactor an immediate death sentence. Like Chernobyl but for white coat staff. However that 1000× may translate to much less since 'background' in a nuclear plant will be set at a lower exposure than out in the civilian populated areas, meaning that the levels in the control room may only be a couple/three hundred× times normal, at a stab in the dark.

The explosion was most likely a steam-explosion or bursting pipes, if 'white smoke' was seen coming from the building it could mean a breach of the secondary confinement releasing fire and steam into the air.

"The explosion was heard at 3:36 p.m. following large tremors and white smoke was seen at the facility in f*kushima Prefecture, the company said."

So since your Stupid Virus infected American style Puritanical forum is so brilliant at blocking 'fukushima', (Praise the Lord), here's the latest update at that Godamned Jap URL. Idiots!

Explosion did not occur at Fukushima reactor: Japan spokesman
Saturday 12th March, 10:02 PM JST

http://www.japantoday.com/category/national/view/explosion-heard-at-fukushima-nuclear-plant-4-injured-tepco



TOKYO —
"Japanese authorities have confirmed there was an explosion at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant Saturday afternoon but it did not occur at its troubled No. 1 reactor, top government spokesman Yukio Edano said.

The chief Cabinet secretary also told an urgent press conference that the operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co., has confirmed there is no damage to the steel container housing the reactor.

Edano said the 3:36 p.m. explosion resulted in the roof and the walls of the building housing the reactor’s container being blown away.

The authorities expanded an evacuation area for all local residents from a 10-kilometer radius of the Fukushima No. 1 and No. 2 plants to a 20-km radius.

Officials of Japan’s nuclear safety agency also said after examination that they believe there has been no serious damage to the container of the No. 1 reactor, judging from the latest radiation data monitored around the facility.

The incident came after the plant lost its cooling functions after it was jolted by a magnitude 8.8 earthquake Friday and radioactive substances of cesium and iodine were detected near the facility Saturday.

The detection of the materials, which are created following atomic fission, led Japan’s nuclear safety agency to admit the reactor has been partially melting—the first such case in Japan.

A partial core meltdown also occurred in a major nuclear accident at Three Mile Island in the United States in 1979. About 45 percent of nuclear fuel was melted in the incident, causing radioactive materials to be released.

According to the Fukushima prefectural government, the hourly radiation from the Fukushima plant reached 1,015 micro sievert in its premises before the explosion, an amount equivalent to that allowable for ordinary people in one year.

Four workers—two from the company and two others from another firm—were injured in the explosion, according to Tokyo Electric Power. The four were working to deal with problems caused by a powerful earthquake that hit northeastern Japan on Friday, it said.

The company said the injuries the four have suffered are not life-threatening and that they are conscious.

The operator of the quake-hit nuclear plants in Fukushima Prefecture, successfully released pressure in the container of housing one of its reactors to prevent a nuclear meltdown, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said.

Even before Tokyo Electric Power succeeded in reducing the pressure, which would involve the release of steam that would likely include radioactive materials, radiation had risen to an unusually high level in and near the No. 1 nuclear plant.

Work to depressurize the containers, aimed at preventing the plants from sustaining damage and losing their critical containment function, has been conducted under an unprecedented government order.

The agency said the core at the No. 1 reactor of the No. 1 plant may be partially melting, and the work to depressurize the container was necessary to prevent the container from sustaining damage and losing its critical containment function.

The agency said that as a result of reducing the container’s pressure radioactive levels at the plant went up. The depressurizing work involves the release of steam including radioactive materials.

But the agency denied that the radiation amount will pose an immediate threat to the health of nearby residents, as wind is currently blowing toward the sea in the northeastern Japan prefecture on the Pacific coast.

At the No. 1 plant, the amount of radiation reached around 1,000 times the normal level in the control room of the No. 1 reactor, and 70 times the normal level near the main gate of the plant.

It was the first time an external radioactive leak had been confirmed since the disaster."

No, you shouldn't be Praying at the moment you should already be pumping water from the Nearby sea, to rapidly cover the exposed core: (f**kYouShima is built on the Coast, right) and they should have had this Fecking infrastructure there already in-situ.

A nuclear plant built on the coast, or by a major River, is there deliberately, and for a purpose and if the pipes aren't working because of electrical failures they need portable electrical generators to power pumps.

If it melts down it's a relatively short path over the North Pole for a fallout cloud to travel to Canada and the USA. It's not as far as you think.

So good luck with all YOUR Brilliant ideas and solutions for that ....
