also they are not showing the pools as high up as they should be and no pool what so ever on the upper right hand side of the containment ( they even have it kind of covered with words blobs )
#3 there is NOTHING left at anything approaching the height of the pools
#4 you can see the cracked broken and dry pool , and damage
#1 might have still had some structure at pool height but the night glow indicates the pool melted out
#2 only one that does not appear to have damage visible at or below the pools ( but all that steam came from somewhere )edit on 5-4-2011 by Silverlok because: (no reason given)edit on 5-4-2011 by Silverlok because: (no reason given)
Yes and those pipes that take that radioactive steam from the reactor to the turbine room... can we see the state of those on any images we have so far?
A plan to cover damaged reactor buildings at the crisis-hit Fukushima nuclear plant with special sheets to halt radiation leakage cannot offer a quick remedy, as the sheeting will be installed in September at the earliest due to high-level radioactivity hampering work at the site, government sources said Tuesday.
The government had asked Tokyo Electric Power Co., operator of the Fukushima Daiichi power station crippled by the March 11 quake and tsunami, to study the installment of radiation-shielding sheets, and a major construction firm commissioned to examine the idea said the construction will not start until June, the sources told Kyodo News.

And if its big enough,could it also Damage No 5 and/or No 6? (thinking about the Explosion from No 3 which heavily damaged No 4) Or is the Distance big enough?

wait unless you mean the firetruck and I think they still have some of those , just maybe not with firemen

what area are you talking about?
I really really think it would be hard to spot a body in this pic do to how small it would be
Sorry everyone (*blushes at own stupidity) please excuse me whilst I sculk back into my corner and restrict myself to 'read only'.

Good idea, but the shell of full disclosure still needs to be cracked first.

In other words.... The lobster of disclosure must meet the shell cracker of destiny?
Normally, should a powerful earthquake occur, a control rod will immediately be inserted into a nuclear reactor to control fission reactions and prevent the reactor from achieving criticality. Furthermore, the emergency core cooling system (ECCS) will fill the reactor with fresh water to cool down its core.
Following the recent earthquake, all 10 nuclear reactor units at both plants shut down automatically. However, some of them failed to secure sufficient power supply to sustain their ECCS functions after the tsunami damaged a pump and other equipment for two emergency power generators attached to each nuclear reactor.
