Fukushima Hots Up – No. 2 reactor estimated at 530 sieverts per hour < UPDATED

3 02 2017

RSOE Report –

“Radiation levels inside a stricken reactor at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant have hit a record high capable of shutting down robots, in the latest challenge (??? how about death-knell) to efforts aimed whiteRAD_yellRedat dismantling the disaster-hit facility. Radiation levels inside the plant’s No. 2 reactor were estimated at 530 sieverts per hour at one spot, Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) said Thursday after analyzing images taken by a manually operated camera that probed the deepest point yet within the reactor. Even after taking a 30-percent margin of error into account, the radiation level was still far higher than the previous record of 73 sieverts per hour detected by sensors in 2012 though at a point not as deep, TEPCO said. Radiation exposure at 530 sieverts per hour would effectively shut down TEPCO’s planned robot camera probe in under two hours. . . . (more)

Correction: They never did have robots that worked more than briefly due to super high radiation levels.
Correction: Radiation exposure at 530 sieverts per hour would effectively shut down the country.

TV: Officials find large section under reactor is “unstable… about to collapse” — “Bad, bad news… Time to reconsider that trip to the east coast of Japan” (VIDEOS)

“The image analysis also found that an around one square-meter section near the missing segment is about to collapse.”

ARE THE BURNING BLOBS MULTIPLYING?

These big bright, pulsating fire-blobs are looking more and more  like big bright, pulsating fire-blobs and not work lights.

Fukushima Mimics the Brown’s Ferry Nuke Meltdown Computer Simulation

15 06 2014

From Leuren Moret –

MELTDOWNS AND RAD RELEASES PRIOR TO TSUNAMI

1981 SIMULATED MELTDOWN: Foreshadowing Fukushima, a simulated meltdown at a nuclear power station was published by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (U.S. Department of Energy) in 1981 for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission: “Station Blackout at Browns Ferry Unit One – Accident Sequence Analysis.”  This report provided a timeline for Ms. Moret to predict, track, and monitor the timing and sequence of parallel developments at the Fukushima disaster as it was happening. Some months later, after months of denials, lies, and disinformation, TEPCO released a power point presentation that affirmed the accuracy of the Browns Ferry simulation, and confirmed timing and sequence of events at Fukushima.

New Level of Incompetence at Fukushima Daiichi

7 10 2013

If you believe this headline – Fukushima worker accidentally switches off cooling pumps, backup kicks in
(Reuters) – The operator of Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant said on Monday that pumps used to inject water to cool damaged reactors were hit by a power failure, but a backup system kicked in immediately.

The Nuclear Regulation Authority said a worker conducting system inspections mistakenly pushed a button turning off power to some of the systems in the four reactor buildings at the Fukushima plant. . .

Does this look like power failure backup lights or corium burning?
