Amazing how such explosions can have no effect on the pressure vessels like....
Just been on the radio that a meltdown is looking increasingly likely. The Japanese media announcements, however, put me in mind of Leslie Nielson in front of a firework shop.
Fuel rods 'fully exposed' in reactor 2, which hasn't even exploded yet....
The power of those explosions is huge
It has the whiff of Comical Ali about it like.
Aye, nuclear, almost
I think its alot worse than they are saying
nothing to see here, all is well, move along
"controlled explosions" they were calling them this morning
ps was great hearing Susannah Reid saying Fukushima yesterday
Off for a wank
a 'controlled explosion'
hartlepool is the nearest one to us iirc
Do you really have a controlled explosion where hundreds of tons of concrete heads 200m into the air (estimated from the pictures) with not a clue where it's going to land?
Never mind the effect of the explosions downwards on the vessels themselves...
and they said x amount of workers missing after these controlled explosions
Fortunately not built in an earthquake zone. Whoever authorised building them there needs a slap
kamikazee employees perhaps
TBF the fuel rods are held inside a concrete containment chamber which is designed to withstand an astonishing amount of explosive force. I'm not saying the authorities aren't lying, but the measures they say they are taking to cool the fuel rods are standard safety procedure under the circumstances.
Personally, I hope they are telling the truth, since the alternative is too terrible to contemplate
Agree it's possible, but blowing up your employees doesn't sound like standard safety procedure
In all honesty, I don't know what to think.
Sky and BBC keep on wheeling out experts, and they talk reassuring about what thing won't happen. Then that thing happens, and they again talk about what next level of terribleness won't happen.
It's understandable that the Japanese would be cautious about what they tell the media, but that means that the experts have little to go off, and rabid rolling news have a vacuum that they are inevitably trying fill with lovely, lucrative fear.
It does seem odd, yes. You'd think it were the nuclear industry closing ranks, but they are not all nuclear experts...
Does anyone actually know what would happen if there's a nuclear meltdown?
And no, I don't believe the announcements. This is based solely on gut feeling, so I'll bow to anyone with superior knowledge.
