Just wanted to let you know, with respect to the presence of chlorine 38. It is wrong to assume that radioactive material must be in a tactile position to form chain reactions. It is not the seawater that is keeping these reactors active. It is a decay state that is formed when an MOX fueled reaction bleeds into a compressed uranium reaction, and in turn releases the “Neutron” beams. These beams are actually a type of photonic light that is indicative of the escape of Neutrons. Neutrons themselves are not luminescent. Sometimes I feel like we are in the dark ages of science.

Radiation off the charts, no info updates from Japan -
NHK Livestream down. I think we are in the dark now
as to what is really going on. I can't say I like it, I would
rather know the worse than to be blinded during a
disaster.

Latest EPA report for the US

April 8, 2011
As of 8:00am (EDT) EPA's RadNet radiation air monitors across the U.S. show typical fluctuations in background radiation levels. The levels detected are far below levels of concern.

Today, EPA also released new data for milk, precipitation, drinking water and laboratory air analyses. Results have detected low levels of radioactive material consistent with estimated releases from the damaged nuclear reactors. These detections were expected and the levels detected are far below levels of public-health concern.

Every geiger counter I have bookmarked in Japan is down or offline. Anyone finding any readings there?

Maybe nitrogen gas caused some reaction ?


Early this morning Japan time, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) began bleeding nitrogen gas into the heavily damaged reactor 1 at Fukushima Daiichi. As we discussed yesterday, the purpose of the gas is to reduce the chances of another massive explosion at the reactor. The inert nitrogen will, in theory, keep volatile hydrogen and oxygen from mixing inside the containment vessel and reactor and prevent another explosion.

Yes, reactor no 1 has gone critical:

TY, even though in Japanese, why I ask, are they only showing readings for 5 reactors? Is that pesky #4 reactor still being left out?

Rod exposure is increasing at #1 as well. Seems that earthquake caused a hiccup in the pumping system, or maybe more leaks.

A couple of reports for background information on the

Useful for normal people to help understand what is going on currently. :-)

I have checked alll my relevant bookmarks as well, nothing.

I wouldn't be surprised that something very bad has already
happened or about to. TPTB must know something of what
is going on - think they will let us know or push it under the
rug?

Page 616, Tworide found the cached file, copied whole article to here, about 3/4 down pg 616. Quite a doozy it is too!

With the injection of silica based polymer known as liquid glass, the Tokyo Electric Company claims that the radiation levels were reducing the amount of radiation leaked into the sea. Despite claims, the substance did not harden as hoped and the material was instead pumped from below the shaft and into the No. 2 reactor.


Am I reading this right, does that mean that they lied about this polymer and it did not plug the leak and the liquid glass ended up being pumped into the reactor core?


Oh thats priceless.

Live now

Not much this round except that the Japanese nuclear agency says the radiation in the ocean is now moving NORTH

Glad to know that you are safe. How easy is it to use and have you tried it on Bananas or Brazil nuts yet?

en.wikipedia.org...



Hello and thank you. Yes, it is very easy to use. It measures both gamma and beta particles. Also has adjustable threshold alarm. Can show both accumulated radiation and real-time readings. I am very happy with it so far. It was a bit expensive, but worth it for the peace of mind.

I did test it on some bananas, but no abnormally high readings. As this dosimeter only reads as low as .1 microsieverts, I am guessing that a banana doesn't contain enough isotopes for it to detect (1 banana has ~75.3 nanosieverts). I don't have any Brazil nuts to test it on.
