What about we hook one of our drones up to a big tank of Cold Oil, and dump the oil onto the reactors. We have drones to kill people, why not to help
It would be expensive (the oil), but it would heat up extremely slowly, and have a hard time burning up, which would starve the fuel rods of oxygen,
which would cause them not to react by burning which would stop the leak of radioactive iodine and cesium. Its stupid to send human beings near a
nuclear wasteland zone. That's why drones should be sent to deliver the payload.
Once the oil is in place, I guess we would try to pour concrete on the plant (powdered with lead) to seal it up.
This would hopefully buy us some time to come up with a long term solution without constant increases in radiation.
Send O'Reilly over there..he says nuclear meltdowns aren't a big deal and its overhyped...therefore he is immune to short and long term
radiation...give him a hose and let him walk right up to the reactor, tossing it in and turning the hose on.
problem solved...tide comes in, tide goes out, never a miscommunication.
Actually, the solution is not far off from just that...get some people to die honorably running a hose over to the reactor..water works fine, no need
for fancy gels or anything like that...its just a matter of getting a bigarse hose to the reactors and problem solved (unless its going into meltdown,
then its too late and the h20 will seperate and become a bomb in itself.)
The Hi Tech from those dumbs needs to come out and drones is one solution. The probably is its too hot, but there is something they dumped in Russia
to slow down the melt down and then they poured the sand and cement, it took thousands of them, not 50.
But the ones here are risking way too much. This is far worse than Russia, no matter what they're saying.
1. 6 reactors, not just 1.
2. spent fuel stored on top in ponds, including many kilograms of PU!
3. 3 melted down, no matter what they say, and possibly it was the China Syndrome, many days ago now, with a full Shroom.
4. There are gaping holes in the containment units exposing the reactors.
5. The radiation is lethal enough to kill if close enough in seconds.
6. This is the worst disaster there is, probably 1000 X Chernobyl, and I think they will need a lot of drones.
OK, money talk right? Get those billionair energy tycoons to pony up the dow so we can get huge pumps, a crazy amount of heavy water and a cooling
machine for the heavy water. Spray the rods, collect the run off, cool the run off, repeat.
Water cannot simply be collected. You are better using a vaporization agent. Something that goes into the air after contact. It may seem horrible, but
radiation is heavy, and fallout at this point would not happen on land. It would fall to the bottom of the ocean.
Sorry for an impromptu first post but I think I may have a somewhat temporary but maybe life saving idea. It's not going to stop a meltdown but it
could delay the spread of radiation. Anyone remember the Dubai rain machines?
Some are of non free will, may detect panic but cannot gather full understanding of the causes and effects and outside effects on native causes...
May feel its what we like since tops controll and NO PANIK. Understand? If you seen me at the park with my children and I kept throwing the base ball
fast at my child to catch and they kept missing and I only sped up the throw. From the outside it looks like I am teaching my son to catch fast balls
even if I am really throwing hard and know it. understand. You observed made best observation and came to conclusion im teaching my child to throw
fast because you kept seeing me the parent CARETAKER doing the same intentional thing. So parents CARETAKERS gotta ask. It may be far out to
And thank you

Liquid nitrogen is completely out of the question. These rods are super heated with radioactivity, it takes them decades to cool down to 'normal'
levels. Using any type of super coolant would crack the rods, splintering them and cause even more damage – aggravating the melt down even further.
Adding any type of gas to an overheated environment or compromised unit would add fuel to the fire. If the containment units were somehow filled
with water – the water could be cooled with liquid nitrogen to stabilize the rods quicker.
Remote controlled units can be put in place that can do the following:
Bury the units with sand, encase the sand in concrete and encase the concrete “tombs” with thick lead.
Right now, those are the only methods that we currently know of that will work in a nuclear reactor melt down. I don't think we can really afford to
experiment with the amount of spent fuel rods and with the amount of reactor core rods that are in play here.
Launching guided “nitrogen” missiles at the units would eject the material into the atmosphere – causing more damage to the environment. It
would be like pouring gas on to an open fire. The rods would shatter, collapse together and quicken the meltdown process. Remember, these are “hot
water” reactors people – Chernobyl used graphite as a heat distributor, and thus they were able to use small amounts of liquid nitrogen to cool
the reactor rods by cooling the insulator with it. They didn't use the LN straight on the control rods... it would have blown up in their faces.
Think of it this way: If you have a glowing hot piece of metal and you apply something that instantly changes it's temperature to “cold” - it
will crack and splinter.
The following demonstration is on a piece of metal that is at 'room temperature':
Imagine that pewter heated to 4000F and attempting to put liquid nitrogen on it . BOOOM
