I'm sure this will all be fixed soon. People saying it won't work are doomsayers . They arent there in Japan. They dont know the extent of damage.

At the request of the Japanese military, a Massachusetts company, iRobot, said it put four robots on a plane for Japan on Friday. Colin Angle, the chief executive, said it had sent two small robots that could measure radiation levels close to the reactors and two larger ones that could pull hoses to spray water on the fuel rods.
