Thanks wishes! There's a lot of pictures in there I don't recall seeing in the original thread. Star for you my friend!

And also at the end of the video it is deliberately fuzzed out.

Sorry to be the bearer of sad news.
We have lost an esteemed Member who is a personal friend and contributer to ATS.
We miss our friend, Bill Allred.
With Great Respect-1Worldwatcher: The world has lost a brilliant mind
From 28 November Tepco will begin a trial of the powerful remote-controlled washer unit. This will move around the floor of the reactor building's first level, scrubbing and jet washing the concrete surface in an attempt to bring down radiation levels. If successful, this method could be used throughout the building.
Unit 2 is the only one of the four stricken reactors at the site that did not experience a hydrogen explosion and so remains basically airtight without the need for a secondary cover. Most of the radioactive material given off by the damaged core was retained within the building and is now distributed around its internal surfaces, putting it off-limits for workers.
Controlled via heavy cables, the Raccoon is powered by two mobile relay units and supported by systems supplying suction and water. It features a 35 kilogram jet head with rotating washers and cameras to aid steering. It moves at up to 10 metres per minute and uses 13 litres of water per minute at a pressure of 15 MPa. A separate robot oversees the cleaner's progress.

Gov’t model shows West Coast of N. America to get highest level of Fukushima contamination until 2030s (VIDEO)
China-Korea Cooperation on the Development of Ocean Monitoring and Prediction System of Radionuclides: In this study we are concerned with long-term oceanic-scale dispersion of Cs 137 released from the Fukushima Daiichi NPP.
The information that helped us to determine the source term of radioactive materials for the numerical experiments was the concentrations of radioactive materials in the ocean reported by Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO).
using monitoring data from the web site of TEPCO near the northern and southern discharge channels of the Fukushima Daiichi NPP.
Assuming a total release of 9 PBq of 137 Cs from the Fukushima Daiichi NPP into the marine environment (only including liquid releases on the Pacific Ocean), the simulation is carried out up to 2031.
Top (L) Mar. 2015; Top (R) Mar. 2019; Bottom (L) Mar. 2021; Bottom (R) July 2031
Note that the total ocean release used in the model is just 1/3 of the estimate by other researchers.
It also does not take into account the daily release of 400 tons of radioactive water from the plant that’s likely been ongoing since soon after 3/11.
The results are shown as animation. Calculation shows that Cs 137 in surface waters of the Pacific Ocean will reach the US coast after 4-5 years however,
the levels will be low, less than 2Bq. a Cubic Meter of Water!
The north Pacific and Indian Ocean will be affected by Cs 137 of Fukushima origin after 30 years with concentrations below 0.1 Bq/m3.
Although results are not shown, it is noted that Cs 137 concentrations at middle (400 m) and deep (800m) water layers will be increasing to the surface levels in 10 and 30 years, respectively.
something that effects the globe will be seen as less than desirable. i think it's safe to say no one wanted to see this happen, be that as it may, your privacy is not your own when it involves billions of others and to dictate such extreme measures as to deny information, is detrimental for all. it has never worked in the course of history and it will fail today as well, causing much distress and animosity for many as well as hindering possibreply to post by OceanSpray
A Japanese construction firm is proposing to solve the well-documented energy problems facing Japan - and ultimately the entire planet - by turning the moon into a colossal solar power plant.
Tokyo-based Shimizu Corp. wants to lay a belt of solar panels 250 miles wide around the equator of our orbiting neighbour and then relay the constant supply of energy to “receiving stations” on Earth by way of lasers or microwave transmission.
The “Luna Ring” that is being proposed would be capable of sending 13,000 terawatts of power to Earth. Throughout the whole of 2011, it points out, the United States only generated 4,100 terawatts of power.
“A shift from economical use of limited resources to the unlimited use of clean energy is the ultimate dream of mankind,” Shimizu says in the proposal on its web site. “The Luna Ring ... translates this dream into reality through ingenious ideas coupled with advanced space technologies.”
Until March 2011, and the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami that crippled the Fukushima nuclear plant, Japan had relied heavily on nuclear power.
