Here's a linky, but I can't locate anything that mentions the way they 'graphed' the reactor vessels, so consider that nonsense unless/until I can produce some info on it. http://enenews.com/breaking-nuclear-fue ... f-reactors

Here's something on the muon graphs: http://www.fukuleaks.org/web/?p=8017


Oh, well the article is from the lay media for laypeople so when they say "reactors" I figured that also includes the containment structures. The fuel melted through the pressure vessel out onto the ground, inside the building of course, and probably melted the floor to some extent. I don't know if removing it will ever be a realistic option in the near term. Maybe the best thing to do is just cover it up with concrete and hope for the best. Keep testing the waters in the area for any sign that it's leaking into the ground water. Inside the containment structure is just so hot that nobody can go near it safely and even robots get fried.

If we do not break up the rods and destroy the mass, an explosion could hurl the Earth out of the Moon's orbit.

Ahem.

There never was a non-super-lame-o Space 1999.

Nor can there ever be. :evil:

Is radiation exposure from the ocean and beach a concern?
I stood on the deck of a ship l2 miles from the Fukushima reactors in June 2011 and was about one-half mile away as recently as October 2015 and the radiation detectors I was carrying showed little or no increase above background levels. Even the samples I collected (water, sediment, plants, and animals) from these locations are safe to handle without any precautions. In fact, our biggest problem is blocking interference from background radiation in our samples so we can isolate the trace levels of cesium and other radionuclides that we know came from Fukushima.


If the biggest problem is trying to distinguish it from the natural background radiation, I'd say that there's not much concern as long as you stay a couple hundred meters or more away from it.

So you must be fucking jubilant. You've asked at least 36.4 times in this fucking thread where the core is. Now you fucking know: Right below, like we said 36.4 times.

You should go celebrate.

It might just as easily be in the concrete below or the dirt below that Rob. Besides, those dribbles of corium hardly represent all of the core material.

Oh, and fuck you! :)
