The Situation Japan, The situation in Japan Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has reached a strange state of continuing deterioration, international securityanlyst Jim Walsh said. As it gets worse, “The good news is that bad news is not as bad as it first looked,” he said.
For example, he cites the fire Tuesday in a pond of spent fuel that has been applied successfully, but not before releasing a plume of radioactive smoke into the atmosphere. Or fire at reactor, which prompted fears of a break containment vessel, the concerns that have since disappeared, “said Walsh – for now.
“Things happen and they look very bad at first. Maybe not as bad as first looked, but the situation deteriorates. ”
As the situation changes from day to day, comparisons are being drawn to the Chernobyl explosion of 1986;anlysts are looking for ways to measure the potential magnitude of damages.
“It will not be a Chernobyl,” author William Tucker said. “The Soviets have no containment structure above their reactor.”
Not Daiichi – a massive structure of concrete and steel that sits on top of its reactors. When the reactors closed, an emergency system pumped in water to cool the fuel rods from the facility. But the system ultimately failed, as the backup system when the tsunami struck, large operators to use seawater to cool the fuel rods.
