Some dudes are working on that. We should wish them the best things. Oh and what is the current situation there? I mean I hear that a piece of the nuclear thingy is over, and it exploded. /UnderstandMyPostHuh?
Workers resumed trying to restore cooling systems Tuesday at the damaged Japanese nuclear power plant in Fukushima, a day after smoke from two reactors forced an evacuation of repair crews. But as the work began, the death toll from the quake and tsunami disaster marched inexorably upward.
Nearly 10,000 people are now confirmed dead, with more than 13,000 missing as a result of the March 11 tragedy, Japan's national police agency reported late Tuesday. Bodies are still being recovered daily, though the grim realization is setting in that many victims have simply vanished without a trace.
As through much of the long struggle to cool damaged, overheated reactors in the ruined nuclear complex, new worries came to the fore after work resumed Tuesday. An official from Japan's nuclear safety agency, Hidehiko Nishiyama, said temperatures in a spent-fuel pool at the No. 2 reactor were believed to be around the boiling point -- raising the risk of the fuel being exposed.
Earlier, Japanese Defense Minister Toshimi Kitazawa had said white smoke from the plant's No. 2 reactor could have been steam and a darker plume from the No. 3 reactor was debris that had been set on fire by the building's rising temperature, the Kyodo news agency reported.
By midday, firefighters and Japanese Self-Defense Forces deemed the situation safe enough to return and continue spraying the building housing the No. 3 reactor, the only one of the plant's six that has yet to be connected power cables.
After much attention shit has down to epic serious disaster.
Japan has raised the severity level of its nuclear crisis from five to the maximum seven, putting the emergency at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant on a par with that at Chernobyl in 1986. Mark Tran looks at the differences between the two disasters
