I think you mean "half-life", not half-time.

Actually the radioactive isotopes released from Fukushima have a half time of 20 000+ years (the time it takes for an isotope to decay so its emisions become half of the initial value) whereas in a nuclear bomb the half time of the uranium isotopes is very short.
