Tepco to abandon the second robot in Reactor 1 again / Camera went out of order due to high level of radiation

On 4/20/2015, Tepco announced they are going to leave the second robot in Reactor 1 as well.

From 4/18 to 4/19/2015, the second robot investigated the first robot that stopped moving inside PCV (Primary Containment Vessel), and they concluded it had one of the wheels stuck between the gratings though they did not release sufficient visual reports.

They need to transform the second robot to let it out of PCV, but one of the cameras was found out of order to control the transformation.

The cause is assumed to be the excessive level of radiation.

As a result, Tepco has decided to abandon the second robot and two of the robots did not bring more than the data they were supposed to send from PCV.
