That does indeed look like steam


What's going on...
edit on 8-4-2011 by Curio because: spelling


It could just be because it is raining and the buildings are hot.

- Let's hope, anyway.

i noticed in the url code in my browser, showed the appropriate reactor number (of each reactor) as the last digit after the "=" sign... so i added "4" (for reactor 4) & clicked enter... graphs appeared, alas no data though... & the name of the reactor is also missing from the location above the graphs...

Please do not misinterpret the intention of this satire piece. We take the Fukushima disaster extremely seriously and have published numerous stories urging people to stay informed and get prepared.

The Fukushima Dictionary of Physics Terminology (satire)


Dictionary of Radiation (and physics) Terms:
Half Life - How much of your lifespan has now been taken away by listening to the misinformation being spewed out by the mainstream media's reporting on Fukushima.

Table of elements - The place where all the seafood from Japan is now resting while we try to figure out if eating it will cause our hair to fall out.

Reactor Number Two - What happens in the toilet stall after you eat McDonald's Happy Meal Combo #1.

Under control - Hopelessly out of control and probably likely to explode at any minute. As in, "Reactor No. 2 is completely under control now."

Neutron - The new sci-fi movie starring Jeff Bridges, as opposed to the "Old Tron."

Cesium - Part of the answer given by nuclear safety workers when asked, "Where is the Fukushima safety manager?" The reply? "I thinks I cesium somewhere around here..."

Safe - The new government euphemism for "more than enough to give you cancer." As in, "The radioactive fallout from Fukushima is now SAFE."

Millisieverts - Something related to Becquerels, or curies, or something physics sounding, but nobody really knows, and it has something to do with the inverse square or something else we probably should have learned in high school physics but we weren't paying attention because we were all too busy trying to figure out how to cheat on the final exam.

Geiger counter - Obama's new nationwide employment plan that involves millions of census workers ("Geigers") aimlessly wandering the streets of America trying to count how many people there are if they would only hold still for long enough.

Nukular - How George W. Bush pronounces "nuclear." To master the "nukular" pronunciation, simply start with the word "nuclear" and then subtract one hundred IQ points.

Fission - The result of the collision between one loose cannon idea and a spherical critical mass of bureaucratic corruption in the power industry. The resulting explosion gives off two additional loose cannon ideas that go on to cause a chain reaction throughout the entire government leading to a total meltdown of integrity.

Inadvertent recriticality - A clever way of covertly rephrasing, "The damn thing is melting down for some reason and we have no friggin' clue why."

Inert gas - What's actually coming out of the mouths of the nuclear industry spin doctors who continue to insist nuclear energy is the future of "green energy" on planet Earth. Apparently, nuclear energy will only save the planet by killing off human civilization first. Pure genius!

Preparedness plan - What the U.S. government now officially describes as "doing nothing other than staying informed" which, of course, means sitting on the couch watching TV while consuming McDonald's Happy Meal Combo #1.

Editor's Note: Please do not misinterpret the intention of this satire piece. We take the Fukushima disaster extremely seriously and have published numerous stories urging people to stay informed and get prepared. We have also donated $12,000 to Fukushima rescue efforts (www.naturalnews.com...) and helped thousands of NaturalNews readers get prepared through our NaturalNews Store.

So I have been going over these reports.
Any clue what the water 15km away from would Iwasawa report I-131 being very high?

Companies in the evacuation zones are not eligible for emergency disaster funds if not DIRECTLY a victim of the Earthquake or Tsunami. Trying to apply for the special unemployment package they are told they must show thier books to be allowed to apply, but the books are in the factories in the evac zone and they cannot go and get the books...

Lawyers said there is no policy for such an accident... maybe there will be after this...

Sharing some "basic" reactor updates April 8

Reactor 1

Remains a Concern
Damage: building, fuel rods
Experienced: explosion, water injected
Radioactive water in the basement continues to hold up repair work. The injection of nitrogen beginning April 7 to forestall a hydrogen explosion continued April 8 despite a major earthquake. The jolt briefly raised the temperature of the reactor. Pumping began April 3 to empty the unit's steam condenser so that the radioactive water will be moved to the condenser from the basement.


Reactor 2

Remains a Concern
Damage: building, fuel rods
Possible damage: containment
Experienced: explosion, water injected
The March 15 explosion may have damaged the torus, where steam is vented.
The basement of the turbine building is soaked with highly radioactive water. Leakage from a cracked concrete pit was sealed April 6. Steel barriers and silt fences will be placed around the seawater intake by April 10 to prevent further spread of toxic water into the ocean. Pumping out of the steam condenser began April 2 and is expected to finish on April 9.


Reactor 3

Possible Breach
Damage: building, fuel rods
Possible damage: spent fuel pool
Experienced: explosion, water injectied
The basement of the turbine building is flooded with radioactive water, though at a lower level than No. 2. Pumping out water from the steam condenser remained on hold April 8 after one of the key vents was found broken. Three workers were injured here March 24.


Reactor 4

Remains a Concern
Damage: building
Possible damage: spent fuel pool
Experienced: Fire/water injected
Concerns center on the fuel rods with remaining active life, being stored in a spent-fuel pool. Power remains out to the control room. Cooling of the spent fuel-storage pool was switched March 27 to seawater injection from water spraying by trucks, and the cooling system still wasn't functional.


Reactor 5

Under Control
Normal cooling operations resumed March 24, one day after a pump breakdown. Reactor 5 has been receiving external power since March 21. The plant operator plans to release a total of 1,500 tons of water that collected underneath reactors No. 5 and No. 6.


Reactor 6

Under Control
The cooling system is working. Reactor 6 has been receiving external power since March 22. The plant operator plans to release a total of 1,500 tons of water that collected underneath reactors No. 5 and No. 6.

yeah same here in Las Vegas and colder than normal. During Chernobyl Russia did cloud seeding to make it rain so the fallout would be less on Moscow

Cloud seeding - Averting Meltdowns
What should Japan do to prevent a complete catastrophe at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant?


Seed cloud-seeding agents in the Pacific in front of the advancing radioactive plume. Use depth charges set for 50 feet or so to loft tons of water. Rain nucleates around particulate, from both the reactors and cloud seeding; should force radioactivity to precipitate out over the Pacific instead of over the West Coast.

Your right... Japanese officials say "no immediate threat to human health"

Thing about radiation, (unless its a very high burst) is that it kills slowly and takes years to show the effects..

So the Japanese officials are technically telling the truth... "no immediate threat to human health"

Go ahead and cry... it is showing 100 Sv/h in the drywell at Unit #1. Lethal within minutes.

Which means, combined with the slowly decreasing radiation readings in the suppression chamber, the corium has now moved out of the RPV in unit #1 as well.

Man found stranded in evacuation zone by AP reporters

The farmhouse sits at the end of a mud-caked, one-lane road strewn with toppled trees, the decaying carcasses of dead pigs and large debris deposited by the March 11 tsunami. Stranded alone inside the unheated, dark home is 75-year-old Kunio Shiga. He cannot walk very far and doesn't know what happened to his wife. His neighbors have all left because the area is 12 miles (20 kilometers) from the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant — just within the zone where authorities have told everyone to get out because of concerns about leaking radiation. No rescuer ever came for him.


I feel so awful for this man.

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.

Not really... we have some sources that the MSM doesn't have: members!

We have a few in this thread who are in Japan right now.

can you physically feel radiation when it reaches this high of a level?
sorry just very curious
