RECORD HIGH FATAL RADIATION LEVELS, HOLE IN REACTOR DETECTED AT CRIPPLED FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR FACILITY

Record high radiation levels that’s lethal even after brief exposure have been detected at a damaged reactor at the Fukushima power plant in Japan. Specialists also found a hole, likely caused by melted nuclear fuel.
Radiation levels of up to 530 Sieverts per hour were detected inside an inactive Reactor 2 at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex damaged during the 2011 earthquake and tsunami catastrophe, Japanese media reported on Thursday citing the plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO).

A dose of about 8 Sieverts is considered incurable and fatal.

A hole of no less than one square meter in size has also been discovered beneath the reactor's pressure vessel, TEPCO said. According to researchers, the apparent opening in the metal grating of one of three reactors that had melted down in 2011, is believed to be have been caused by melted nuclear fuel that fell through the vessel.

The iron scaffolding has a melting point of 1500 degrees, TEPCO said, explaining that there is a possibility the fuel debris has fallen onto it and burnt the hole. Such fuel debris have been discovered on equipment at the bottom of the pressure vessel just above the hole, it added.

The latest findings were released after a recent camera probe inside the reactor, TEPCO said. Using a remote-controlled camera fitted on a long pipe, scientists managed to get images of hard-to-reach places where residual nuclear material remained. The substance there is so toxic that even specially-made robots designed to probe the underwater depths beneath the power plant have previously crumbled and shut down.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Clearly, there is uncontrolled fission going on underneath the ruined reactors.

With all the incredibly shabby and value-engineering done on this plant TEPCO has come very close to having created an ELE here (an "extinction level event"); and both TEPCO and the Japanese government are impotent to stop the damage.

And what is the rest of the world's leadership doing?!? Ignoring it as though this hasn't happened at all, no matter how many people are going to die from this.

In my world, every TEPCO official and Japanese government official who signed off on the horrific design flaws in this plant should be charged with irreversible world endangerment, and probably spend the rest of their miserable lives in prisons run by the Yakuza.

Unfortunately, however, the execs at TEPCO and Japanese government officials live in the world of monied privilege, and that means never having to take responsibility for the results of their actions.
