Demonstration of a Nuclear Meltdown


No end in sight

It’s that bad in Fukushima NPP. It’s a  “waste of effort“, according to Satoshi Sato, a Japanese nuclear industry consultant.

Plant instruments are likely damaged and unreliable because of the intense heat that was generated, and pumping more water into the reactors is only making the contamination problem worse, he said. Read More…

Safety measures failures in Fukushima NPP 1


The Fukushima NPP #1 have 3 safety measures to prevent a meltdown.

Video shows how the Fukushima NPP operates and how the safety measures failed. The stress of the earthquake probably cracked the containment unit or the pipes. The use of MOX fuel probably weakens the reactor. Read More…

Google Earth Animation of Japanese Earthquakes


Earthquakes are a common occurrence in Japan. The time period of this animation is between 9th March to 14th March 2011. It shows a series of earthquakes in Japan.

The timescale here is every second equals to an hour. The big one is around 1:17 It’s terrifying and makes you wonder why in the first place they build nuclear reactors there. Read More…

4th Reactor of Fukushima NPP on fire


I thought bad things come in threes.

A fourth reactor at Fukushima NPP is on fire and it’s releasing highly concentrated radioactive materials said Prime Minister Naoto Kan.

He called on citizens residing within the 20-km distance from the reactor to immediately leave this zone and those living more than 20-30 km (13-17 miles) from the NPP to stay in their houses, but to shut windows and doors. Read More…

Japanese Government Confirms Meltdown


The worst possible outcome. Nuclear disaster is a disaster that goes on and on. Even today, 25 years later, the area around Chernobyl is a dead zone. No humans can live there.

Will it be the same at Fukushima? Read More…
