@ Lilfox I too have Terra-p and a DRSB-01 the latter being a more military model and more sensitive.

In regards to Chornobil liquid nitrogen was never used underneath the reactor. When the stalkers (military personel given the task of mapping radiation pockets over the area) gained access to the lower chambers underneath the reactor they found that the melted slag did penetrate the concrete.

Those liquidators were hero's

The maximum credible accident happened at the fukushima 1 nuclear power plant

The Japanese authority for nuclear safety now officially presumes that a meltdown in Fukushima Daii-chi happened.

Also as a side note there was a website that monitors radiation over the uk if anyone knows what is was can you maybe post a link?

And I was wondering perhaps we should get a thread going just for info about the reactor itself covering wind direction, levels of radiation etc?

NHK television and Jiji news agency say the outer structure of the building that houses the reactor appears to have blown off, but nuclear experts say this does not necessarily mean the nuclear reactor has been breached.

Earlier the operator released what it said was a tiny amount of radioactive steam to reduce the pressure and the danger was minimal because tens of thousands of people had already been evacuated from the vicinity.

Japanese nuclear safety agency officials believe the explosion has caused no serious damage to the container of the unstable nuclear reactor.

The officials made the comment after examining the latest radiation data monitored around the nuclear power plant.

Tokyo Electric later confirmed the reactor's inner container sustained no damage in the explosion.

Japan's government earlier confirmed radiation leaked from the power plant after Saturday's explosion, which followed a series of large tremors.

But Japan's chief cabinet secretary, Yukio Edano, later said radiation levels near the Fukushima plant had fallen after the blast.

A nuclear industry official says he believes the blast was due to hydrogen igniting, and may not pose a further threat.

"It is obviously an hydrogen explosion... due to hydrogen igniting," Ian Hore-Lacy, communications director at the World Nuclear Association, a London-based industry body, said.

"If the hydrogen has ignited, then it is gone, it doesn't pose any further threat."

Hope this helps.

I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, this is just like nothing before.
I'm literally freakin out. If our crops were to fail, we wouldn't be the only ones affected.
In other words, a great famine?
Not fearmongering, just really scared right now.



Its not a good situation at all, but its not the apocalypse. The effects will largely be limited to the local region. I'm sure the media will have everyone in a panic by tracking the 'radioactive dust cloud of doom', but I wouldn't lose sleep over the potential for a global catastrophe. If we survived about 500 above-ground nuclear weapons tests during the Cold War, we can survive a single meltdown.

Its a disaster for northern Japan, without a doubt, but the rest of us will be fine.

I have a calibrated CDV-715 for more accurate testing, the terra-p is a great pocket model and has an alarm, which is what I wanted (The dosimeter is handy as well)

I only need to know when to run and how far, lethal and lethal +/- 5% means little to me


As for the liquidators.. they deserve medals from every nation on earth for what they did.

Was there any really need to Quote Bobbys post twice? It was quite massive... And yes people are indeed very very weird.

They are going to pump the reactor full of sea-water and boric acid (a neutron poison). It also had an explosion directly above the containment vessel. I think it's obvious that it will never operate again...

Actually its quite possible they will continue to opperate the remaining reactors, especially now that they will be down in production. Chernobyls remaining reactors were only only closed down in 2000...

And after that, they say that French are the most egocentric people of the world ...

This is disheartening. Infuriating.

Also, more on the subject : if there is any superior force that could help Japan, please, help ...

I do not even have words to describe what I am feeling reading those Facebook comments. I guess I should not be shocked, those comments probably do represent the majority in the US. Contrary to what most people will say, the majority are weak minded, uninformed sheep.

Either trolls, or just are truly ignorant hateful individuals.

(and unfortunately I have seen it said that Japan doesn't deserve help due to the fact they are not Christian)
