What shape are they in?
Tough questions Q. So little real information. Guesstimations really. I'll even add my own question. How much of the water they spray is even hitting
what % of the fuel?
I'm not sure how many of these molten cores have stayed together in one big ball of hot slag, the size of a dump truck? Maybe they separated into a
few big ones burning there way down with lots of bowling ball or coffee table size chunks, scattered around, to keep the place so lethal, no one can
approach the main cores? Hell there could be nuclear stalactites and stalagmites hanging from ceilings and growing on floors. They might be watering
a whole floor, or not going in at all? Just leaving it.
#1 : What surprised me the most about the latest film of the 5th floor of #1 [late fall 012], was how nothing had been moved... or cleaned up. Not one
piece of debris had been touched since the May 011 film. The roof was still sitting on the pool and the big crane blocked any view of the fuel pool
itself. I don't think anyones been in there. They just built the tent, maybe tied off a fire hose over the pool and left it. If I remember right the
hottest readings of the base of #1 were in the NW corner [main molten core travelling diagonally?]
#2 : Core blew downward and sensors keep frying out everywhere constantly. Foundation/base probably looks like badly stacked firewood. Lots of holes
everywhere. Everything they pump in might leak out without touching most of the fuel [Hence the fried sensors]. All 4 basements are intentionally and
unintentionally draining from there, although I'm sure the others have cracks/leaks as well. The surface of the #2 pool has been seen once by the
robot with water in it, but the ceiling was scorched above it so I'll guess it partially drained, caught fire, burned, but was refilled before it
could explode. Maybe has fuel continually burning under water?
#3 : Both reactor and pool exploded. What % was ejected into the sea and sky is anybodies guess? I would guess that there is more of #3 core left than
the fuel pool, but who knows? [I can't believe morons are testing fish around fuk and wondering why they're still hot? I mean C'mon.... chunks of
fuel rods went flying in at least a 2 mile circumference of ocean around fuk. Maybe the damn fish are still hot because they're swimming in a fuel
pool?.... Not to mention the leaking foundations.
#4 fuel pool. I think a larger % went up than we think
One more question. How many of the fuel pools actually hold water without leaking through cracks?
Remember this? Fall 011, 4th floor of #4, looking NE. West wall of the fuel pool is behind the machines at the top of the pic. Red arrows show sand
bags and plywood [They're so Hi-tech, eh?] to prevent the leaking water from running down the blue freight shaft.
The new diagonal ramp we have seen at the south wall of #4 is bracing this wall.
CSFP : Has anybody heard if they restored cooling in there, or is it connected to the latest "Rat Flash?
#5 and #6 : Too little info to even make a guess. Cracked fuel pool or pools?
Hows that Q?
Anyone, please feel free to add or correct.
