Slow progress at Fukushima plant

Power will be restored to reactors, but many problems still remain


 

While Japanese officials are reporting progress at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, nuclear workers and technicians still have a long way to go before stabilizing the plant’s damaged reactors. Four of the six reactors have been connected to the outside power grid, which would restore power to the reactor cooling systems. But because the reactors had tones of water dumped on them in the frantic effort to keep exposed fuel rods cool, some of the reactors devices are will not work when they receive electricity. In addition, reactor three continued to release radioactive steam into the air on Monday. The government has been criticized for its slow response to the disaster, after it took several days for the full mobilization of Japan’s military and emergency response services to be engaged after the earthquake and tsunami left up to 21,000 people dead or missing.

  1. This is an absolutely stunning learning experience! Who would of thought that Nuclear could be that harmless? It would take a lot of bombs to hurt the World. Now when Iran or North Korea threaten, we just say, LETS GO! End of those threats, just like our Prime Minister called the french bluff! lol. Separate like hell. You could shake them off, like a dog with fleas!
