Fukushima Engineer Says He Helped Cover Up Flaw at Dai-Ichi Reactor No. 4

The TRUTH finally coming forth?


One of the reactors in the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant may have been relying on flawed steel to hold the radiation in its core, according to an engineer who helped build its containment vessel four decades ago.

Mitsuhiko Tanaka says he helped conceal a manufacturing defect in the $250 million steel vessel installed at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi No. 4 reactor while working for a unit of Hitachi Ltd. (6501) in 1974. The reactor, which Tanaka has called a “time bomb,” was shut for maintenance when the March 11 earthquake triggered a 7-meter (23-foot) tsunami that disabled cooling systems at the plant, leading to explosions and radiation leaks.

“Who knows what would have happened if that reactor had been running?” Tanaka, who turned his back on the nuclear industry after the Chernobyl disaster, said in an interview last week. “I have no idea if it could withstand an earthquake like this. It’s got a faulty reactor inside.” .......



Did anybody know reactor 4 was conveniently "down for maintenance" when the quake hit ???


www.bloomberg.com...


the usual corporate cover-up at everybody Else's expense.

Good catch, never trust liars with a vested interest in lying, the only place the buck stops is in the big mans wallet.

Neutron beam observed 13 times at crippled Fukushima nuke plant


Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Wednesday it has observed a neutron beam, a kind of radioactive ray, 13 times on the premises of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant after it was crippled by the massive March 11 quake-tsunami disaster.

TEPCO, the operator of the nuclear plant, said the neutron beam measured about 1.5 kilometers southwest of the plant's No. 1 and 2 reactors over three days from March 13 and is equivalent to 0.01 to 0.02 microsieverts per hour and that this is not a dangerous level.

Great Find !


TEPCO has been "fibbing" about just about everything haven't they !!

WHY would they tell the truth NOW ???




But the measured neutron beam may be evidence that uranium and plutonium leaked from the plant's nuclear reactors and spent nuclear fuels have discharged a small amount of neutron beams through nuclear fission.


GREAT CEASAR'S GHOST !!!!

WHAT the devil does THAT mean ????

It's like they're writing about this stuff ONLY for nuclear scientists to read !




next they'll be telling us that these "beams" can transport people !!

by the way,

what do the Tarot Cards say about this situation ?

and maybe an Astrological synopsis ?

seriously .....

maybe do a chart for the reactor (construction date, power-up date, or something like that) ?

or a corporate chart for TEPCO ?

it could lend some logic and some very interesting scenarios and answers !
