Robot probes sent to one of Japan's wrecked Fukushima nuclear reactors have suggested worse-than-anticipated challenges for the plant's ongoing cleanup. The plant's operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. said the remote-controlled "scorpion" robot was sent into the Unit 2 reactor's containment vessel Thursday to investigate the area around the core that had melted six years ago, but its crawling function failed while climbing over highly radioactive debris.


The rest of the article can be found here on ABC.

Worse than anticipated challenges for the cleanup of the plant......... You can anticipate all you want but you can never be truly prepared for the worst case scenario. This was and still is the worst case scenario that no one could have ever been prepared for. Yet, we are going to be dealing with this for the rest of our lives and not to mention the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Japanese that have already been poisoned by radiation coming from the plant.

sisn't the us navy have an incidentt where one of our ships went to aid the area around fukishima and alot of sailors got radiation sickness because their drinking water was originally seawater that was desalinated . but nobody had thought the water might be irradiated

Water itself doesn't become radioactive when irradiated as it's a nice stable compound. It's the minerals and salts in water that can become radioactive - and by definition, desalination should remove those impurities.

You might want to research Tritium. Desalination would not remove Tritium from water, and there was a significant amount released at Fukushima.

It is a beta emitter and doesn't haven't enough power to pass through human skin.....but consuming it internally is a very bad idea, and those sailors most likely consumed Tritium through their drinking water from the sea around Fukushima.

On side note, some people believe drinking tritaited water to have health benefits,,, they used to sell it....

en.wikipedia.org...


Tritiated water is a radioactive form of water where the usual hydrogen atoms are replaced with tritium
