Source? Reactor or housing around the reactor that's steel reenforced?

You don't have to go to extremes like that. It's really going to ruin your weekend just to show some concern? To discuss this major disaster with friends or loved ones? Really?

yes i totally under stand that, just it really angers me the conflicting reports comming out, does that make the situation any better? i dont think so, i think if the people are bien bombarded with all types or reports that they are not going to be at any more ease than bien told the truth as they prob realise the scale of it by judging the reports themselves.

by the way i am no way putting down the japanese at all!! they are doing a seriously wonderfull job at trying to control it! by far the best job seen than other cases and the rescue people prob couldn do a better job either!! i honistly think they are one of the best type of people to handle this as they are a wonderfull people and a wonderfull country which iv always wanted to visit. its just the media and reoprts dont make it look like that, kind of makes them look like thay havent a clue whats going on when in fact its the media reporting that havent a clue whats going on. that kind of stuff anoys me, its like making hero's look like they dont know what the situation is.

anyway enough of my giving out(not the place for it)

and i want to say well done to all the people who are helping and doing there best over there to save people's lives over there, they are the ones who are hero's in this situation!!

Just watched a brief glimpse on uk channel 5 news. Looks like the whole outbuilding blew. Do not know reactor condition

im getting a feeling of nostalgia all over again...this reminds me of the soviet union cover up of the chernobyl accident.

are they really putting sand into the reactors by helicopter?

And you're certain this isn't the same footage from the previous reactor? (Not to sound rude, just verifying)

Hopefully videos hit the internet soon, this doesn't sound good.

Cheers for spoiling the film.

Utterly pointless posting that!


I disagree. I think some people are assuming the Japanese can put some water over the thing and it'll be okay. They have no idea the kinetic processes involved under the damaged reactor. Just like turning a kettle on for except it continually gets hotter and hotter and no 'off' button. The only way to cool it is to circulate cooler water around it, but once it passes a critical point all hope is fruitless.

KNOWING is a good demonstration of just how much kinetic energy a single reactor holds if (although luckily it NEVER will) one of these went into critical mass. Thats how much energy the Japanese are trying to control in 1, nevermind 5 of them right now.

I'll definitely read up on "escapist personality", thanks for the tip.

Furthermore, they said the reactor 3, was exposed to the air for some time then resubmerged. Supposedly hinting at a partial meltdown. But they also say its resubmerged, while at the same time, the sea water they keep surrounding it with, doesn't raise, it keeps going down.

You know there was an explosion. Isn't the China Syndrome a scenario where the reactor goes down into the earth (I imagine this would create a hole) then explodes upwards?

Is the reason the water won't top up, but keeps going down because there is now a hole there?

The posting of OUTDATED info is getting out of hand.

Watch TV channels from Japan... not some news site or tv stations that are not japanese because BY DEFAULT this non-japanese stations will be outdated.

That is highly plausible.

yes Reuters are reporting it.

So that means 4 of the 5 sites on the East coast are now affectedf

A pump within the cooling system of one of the reactors at the Tokai nuclear power plant has stopped working, according to the Kyodo news agency. The plant is located in the Naka district of the central prefecture of Ibaraki, and is operated by the Japan Atomic Power Company. The 1,100MW Tokai plant, about 120km (75 miles) north of Tokyo, was automatically shut down after Friday's earthquake.

Fox just reported there are reports of Another explosion. So looks like this may be true.

Thats the issue there isn't anything new to report.

Most news are focusing into restoring basic infrastructure : water, energy and communication. Distribution of supply are the main concern at this moment because its hard to reach the isolated shelters.

I thought the japanese power plants are the safest of the world? Damn i hope the possible next earthquake doesn´t strike soon. A little off topic but the situation in Japan caused a mjaor debate in germany about the use of nuclear power as energy. There are 10.000 people demonstrating on the streets. The world is in chaos.
