Explosion at Nuclear Power Plant in Japan (48 pics + 1 video)

Posted in Pictures   12 Mar 2011   / 20324 views

After the devastating earthquake and tsunami, which followed afterwards, a huge blast was observed at the Fukushima-Daiichi atomic power plant that caused the radiation leak.

After the earthquake hit Japan, in several of the reactors at the two Fukushima plants the cooling systems failed and “without cooling, the temperature in the reactor core builds, with the risk that it could melt through its container into the building housing the system.” It also causes pressure in the containers where the reactor is situated.

The Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan declared that the amount of radiation released was "tiny." We sure hope so… but could this be another Chernobyl??

After the jump, you’ll also see the most recent photos of the consequences of the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on Friday.

No this will not be another Chernobyl. The reason the Chernobyl disaster was so disastrous was because they used solid graphite as moderators in that reactor. Graphite-fires are really hard to put out, so the fires took a long time to put out and thats the reason the radioactivity managed to spread so far.

I am saddened by what has happened, hoping they can quickly get back on their feet but given the physical and moral, they will struggle to recover ... my condolences to the families

But you dont have any other method to shut down soo efectly like graphite cores.
Atomic reactors are most pro ecologic then any other kind of powerhouse, and most safe.

And all those photos are not because reactor big bang, but there was tsunami. You only mess people mind.
