I just found this on ANN. It was posted today [In Japanese]. I don't think we've seen it before. Interesting stuff but the camera jumps around a lot.

We also have a new robot film of #2 exploring shower curtains everywhere.


I thought the #2 fuel pool was across from the big opening in the #2 wall?

Japan's Tepco to sell 20 pct stake in wind power unit-Nikkei


Tokyo Electric, the owner of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, is expected to sell the stake for a little less than 20 billion yen ($262 million) and post a profit of about 10 billion, which will be used for compensation, the Nikkei business daily reported.


The company, better known as Tepco, has issued a statement, saying that it has not made such a decision.


Tepco is preparing an extraordinary operating plan, likely to include asset sales, cost cuts and other restructuring measures, and get government approval before receiving bailout funds. ($1 = 76.130 Japanese Yen)

Sounds like Tepco mania.
Time for some shock therapy.

Now onto what added to today's headache.

PPC expresses concern over leakage at KANUPP


Nuclear facilities in Pakistan are precariously located, particularly the KANUPP that is stationed alongside the coast. An earlier letter written by civil society organisations to the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission to demand a copy of the Karachi Emergency Relief Plan, in case of a nuclear disaster, met with no response. Concerns have also been raised against the authorities’ practice of dumping uranium waste near mines in Dera Ghazi Khan. According to reports, the emergence of leukemia cases is higher in the region.



The PCC demanded the government put a stop to the ongoing nuclear programme, while any plan of expanding the country’s current nuclear power generation capacity must be immediately called off. The nuclear contribution to the Pakistan’s total electricity supply is very limited, while the hazards it poses far outweigh its utility. According to the recent estimates, nuclear capacity represents merely 2.4 percent of the total installed capacity of 19,252MW, but the cost to the people and the country in the return would be quite high.

And heres one that has the cloud pulse but not the flash or the ground pulse. This was one of the first vids of the R3 explosion that were enhanced.

www.youtube.com...

Im going to keep looking. out there somewhere is the original untouched.

ON EDIT: Actually, no Im not. Its a waste of time. That a pre blast pulse may have happened is all that matters. Plus Ive learned how to download youtube vids. too much other stuff in need of analysis.

report from the Nuclear Power Industry News
sorry if we have already had this and I missed it. In this pro-nuclear news, the new (october 14th) thermal image released is interesting.

Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant Weekly Review

Water Treatment System Making Progress, But Another Leak Reported

On Tuesday TEPCO reported 3 metric tons of irradiated water leaked from a rapidly assembled system designed to reduce widespread flooding at the plant.

The Asahi Shimbun quoted TEPCO as saying the water leaked from a cesium absorption unit and was confined to the treatment system site. Kurion makes the absorption units in the system designed by Areva and Veolia Water. After it was put online this spring, the treatment system made halting progress through a series of malfunctions and leaks, the biggest of which released 6 tons in June.

The system had treated about 130,000 tons of water, according to TEPCO’s report. The treated water is now being used to cool the reactors, and water levels in plant basements have declined significantly.


I guess this article showing the thermal image taken on the 14th released by Tepco is proof that their cover on No 1 is 'working'.

If, indeed, they PURPOSELY edited the footage erasing a pre-blast, there had to be a reason for it, although I can't for the life of me figure out how they could be so smart that they realized so soon into the crisis that this was THAT important that it must be erased. No one is that smart. In fact everyone would have sat there in awe for hours before realizing anything was important.

I personally believe that the INITIAL explosion (we are talking micro seconds here) was a hydrogen explosion that then compressed the fuel in the SFP in a similar fashion to a regular nuke, which caused what had melted in the SFP to reach criticality and explode. The fuel that had not yet completely melted became the "dirty bomb" of material that was spread out to the rest of the world. Hence the fuel pellets we have heard about them finding.

I personally think that this explosion then breached the main reactor in some fashion, no reactor is built to sustain that kind of pressure. Hence the steam that we saw being released.

But they can never admit that. Telling everyone that so much nuke material was ejected from the SFP would be condemning the country of Japan to evacuation, and that is obviously something that they will avoid at all costs.

Kashiwa hot spot linked to Fukushima



The science ministry said Sunday the high radiation detected on city-owned land in Kashiwa, Chiba Prefecture, is emanating from cesium that was probably ejected by the crippled Fukushima No. 1 power plant, contradicting earlier government claims.

When the Kashiwa Municipal Government first received a report about an airborne radiation reading of 57.7 microsieverts per hour at the site, it said the radiation was unlikely to be related to the Fukushima disaster because it was coming from such a tiny area.

On Sunday, the science ministry and the city government found a side ditch near the reported hot spot during a joint survey and said it is highly likely that rain tainted with fallout from the Fukushima plant was running into nearby soil.

This are bad News


Citizens' forum queries nuclear 'experts'



To whom does scientific debate belong? That was a central question raised by many of the 200-plus people who attended a citizens' forum in Tokyo on Oct. 12, as they criticized the ways in which the Japanese government and radiation specialists working for it are assessing and monitoring the health effects of the ongoing nuclear disaster at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

The daylong conference, organized by the Japanese citizens' groups SAY-Peace Project and Citizens' Radioactivity Measuring Station (CRMS), featured experts who dispute much of the evidence on which the government has based its health and welfare decisions affecting residents of Fukushima Prefecture and beyond. Organizers of the event were also demanding that the government take into consideration the views of non-experts — and also experts with differing views from those of official bodies such as the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP).

The Japanese government has constantly referred to the ICRP's recommendations in setting radiation exposure limits for Fukushima residents. One of the driving forces for the citizens' forum was a desire to challenge the conduct and much of the content of a conference held Sept. 11-12 in Fukushima, titled the "International Expert Symposium in Fukushima — Radiation and Health Risk."

New algae a better radioactive absorber than currently used mineral, researchers say



A new type of algae is better at absorbing radioactive strontium and iodine than a mineral currently being used to treat radioactively contaminated water, say scientists. According to a research group, the new algae, called "Parachlorella sp. binos" or "binos" for short, is better at absorbing some radioactive materials than is zeolite, which is being used at the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant to treat radioactively contaminated water.

The vids were switched after the original was posted on ATS and it was pointed out that there was a pulse/flash that preceeded the blast. This was in august if memory serves. And the reason they did this, IMHO, was because they have been working frantically to keep concealed the existence of an illegal weapons factory. This is also why so much of the early attention was paid to the CSFP and switching yard concerning dust inhibition, why they filled every pit, trench and available opening with cement, why they have a night work crew kept separate from the day crews, why they ignored a power source already tied into the plant after the tsunami, why the first serious night lighting put up was to the CSFP and southend complex, why the first nitro line went into the CSFP (and down into the UC) etc etc etc. None of it makes any sense. Thats why I kept dogging it, it didnt add up.

Logic dictates that the R3 blast was a hydrogen blast followed by something else. However, the pre blast pulse and the possibility of a blast in the UC is also logical considering what we now know about the state of Japans nuclear industry, and the desire by many in power to possess nukes.

If the pandora9 version which just surfaced is really the original, then the pre blast flash/pulse that we do see is likely above R1 and not the switching yard. This too makes sense. The UC would be heavily sealed behind double steel doors like the ones in the reactor buildings. However, the blast in R1 blew out some doors and allowed for communication with the UC.

What if there was a hydrogen buildup and explosion in the UC that emits out R1 through the now open tunnel system, and is a sufficient shock wave to jostle both the SFP and RPV causing prompt criticality in both. First the SFP blows a hole in the roof to the south/southeast, followed by the RPV. Or instead of the RPV blowing, the SFP explosion blows open doors to the UC and ignites the hydrogen built up in that section of the UC. Or what if the second part of the R3 blast is really a nuclear explosion caused by refined fuel in the UC going prompt super critical.

The thing that I still dont understand is how could the 4th and 5th floors of R3 be destroyed beyond recognition, while the lower floors are hardly impacted. This leads me to believe that the first part of the R3 blast itself, where the flame emits out the south side, was a prompt critical explosion involving the SFP. Hydrogen ignition would have been involved, but not as the precursor.

There are two sucking back in events that occur in the R3 blast (explained in previous posts). The first occurs before the blast itself. This I believe is caused by the initial blast in the UC. The second sucking back in, when the flame pulls back into the reactor building, is caused by either the UC going off in a bigger way than the initial pulse, or the RPV going off, if in doing so it would create a vacuum.

And as always, just my 2 cents

When you find evidence about this Illegal Weapon Factory the Japanese Nuclear Program
would be more highly damaged by this News than by F'Shima!

I still don't believe into this Story, okay Tepco is highly Criminal but not tired of Life!

Here is the Script from Noda's Speech:

1. The accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station of the Tokyo Electric Power Co. has raised the profound issue of how humankind should deal with nuclear energy. I commend the insight of the secretary general for his leadership in convening this meeting, taking the opportunity of the U.N. General Assembly, for which representatives of states around the world assemble.

2. Since struck by a massive earthquake and tsunami, the people of Japan have been receiving very heart-warming encouragement and support from all over the world. On behalf of all the Japanese people, I should like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to you all.

3. Science and technology have aided the progress of the human race and brought prosperity to every corner of the world. For over half a century, since it made use of the most advanced high technology to take its first stride toward the civil use of nuclear energy in 1957, Japan has researched and applied the means to use nuclear power safely, and fostered and developed its nuclear industry so diligently that the whole nation suffered a serious blow from the recent accident.

4. For the last half a year, since the accident occurred, Japan has been struggling with all its strength by concerted efforts throughout the nation to bring the accident under stable control at the earliest possible time. As the person in overall charge of those efforts, I visited the site of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station of the Tokyo Electric Power Co. immediately upon taking office as prime minister this month, and observed the reactor buildings up close. This very fact demonstrates the steady progress in our efforts to bring the accident under stable control.

5. Through the dedicated efforts of the people involved, we are steadily moving closer to stable control of the accident. The most recent estimates indicate that the amount of radioactive material being discharged is now being held down to a level of one-four millionth of that at the early stage of the accident. We are now making every effort to achieve the state of cold shutdown of the reactors roughly within 2011, ahead of schedule. Improvements in the situation are being sustained by the dedicated efforts of over 2,000 workers who persevere steadfastly in their work even as they expose themselves to the dangers of radiation and heat stroke. We would be remiss to forget that fact.

6. The unimaginable destructive force of the enormous tsunami, which reached a height of 15 meters, has left traces that can still be found even now in the tsunami-stricken areas. At a minimum, there is little doubt that we had overestimated our preparations for tsunami. It is clear that electrical power supplies for emergency use and pumps should not have been situated in locations that could be submerged by tsunami. Our preparations for a severe accident that would result in damage to the reactor core were insufficient. Making a vent took more time than expected, causing loss of precious time. While a full-scale process to discover the cause of the accident will continue for some time, we have identified ''faults'' as well as ''lessons learned'' from them. Full-fledged inspections to be conducted based upon these on the safety of nuclear power stations both within Japan and abroad should be a most urgent task ahead of us.

7. Japan will disclose to the international community all the information related to this accident, in both a swift and accurate manner. We have already presented two reports to the IAEA on the course of events. The Investigation Committee on the Accident at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Station of Tokyo Electric Power Co. is conducting a comprehensive investigation of the accident from a neutral and objective standpoint and will release its final report next year. Japan will hold an international conference to be co-hosted by the IAEA next year, through which we will share with the international community the results of our comprehensive inspections and our charted courses of action towards the safe use of nuclear energy.

BREAKING: Gov’t confirms 57.7 microsievert/hr near Tokyo is linked to Fukushima meltdowns — “Highly likely” it came from rain tainted with radioactive fallout


How does rainwater this far from Fukushima come together to produce this much of a hotspot and not be noticed over a wide area. I dont get this.

As we said before, the people of Japan are going to have to make a choice.

1. Evacuate the citizens from a vast majority of the country.

2. Live with the radiation and the conditions, hoping that they don't cause the eventual extinction of the japanese people and their culture.

As the HIGHLY radioactive ground water starts to really spread throughout the country, more and more sections will EVENTUALLY deemed to hot to live in.

This is a crisis that will grow over the next few decades.

But, in my opinion, the end result will be the same.

Think Fukushima is the end of the nuclear age? Nuclear power has kept growing in recent decades despite Chernobyl and various other disasters. Between 1996 and 2009, 49 new nuclear reactors started operation and 43 reactors were retired, according to the World Nuclear Association. Currently the world as a whole has 440 operating nuclear reactors. The United States has by far the most, followed by France and Japan.

#3 Japan Importer of energy.


Look at how fortified the Russian reactor is.

I have been over the footage a few times. This collapsed pavement south of #4 was all I spotted. So how about what they didn't show? The east wall of the #4 turbine building. [Bags of rocks instead]. They turned around on the beach road before reaching the #1 turbine building. I did see what looked like some steam rising from the #1 turbine building. Also nothing from Main St. on the west side. The film shot from the hatch in #3 is so shaky [On purpose I'm sure] it hurts your eyes. Hopefully someone else can spot a nugget.
