Workers enter Japan reactor for 1st time since blast 

TOKYO – Japanese workers entered the No.1 reactor building at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant on Thursday for the first time since a hydrogen explosion ripped off its roof a day after a devastating March 11 earthquake and tsunami.

High radiation levels inside the building have prevented staff from entering to start installing a new cooling system to finally bring the plant under control, a process plant operator Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) has said may take all year. . .


In the above article TEPCO admits they had a hydrogen explosion. That would have blown thousands of radioactive spent fuel rods all over the place and put a lot of radiation into the air.

. . . TEPCO official Junichi Matsumoto told a news conference.

“While they were going inside the reactor building for the first time since the hydrogen explosion, we already knew the situation inside and the radiation by using robots, so they did not go inside as so-called suicide squads,” he said.
