The Navy no longer operates prototypes at the DOE site outside of Idaho Falls. But, there is stuff still there you don't want to know about or be anywhere near. Good thing it's a good distance from any city. Rad Rabbits. It's a very big, very old site, older than Area 51.

The reactors at Fukushima should have had better emergency power supply. Given how many reactors there are around the world and how old some of them are, it's a reasonable bet that other natural disasters will cause more nuclear disasters. France has a large number of reactors. 12,000 years is a long time to wait for a city to cool off.

I'll have to check out that video. ... ant-rescue

* Radioactivity soars in reactor 2, workers evacuated

* Radiation level is highest since crisis began

* Crisis far from end, says U.N. nuclear chief (Adds details on reactors and radiation readings)

By Shinichi Saoshiro and Taiga Uranaka

TOKYO, March 27 (Reuters) - Workers were withdrawn from a reactor building at Japan's earthquake-wrecked nuclear plant on Sunday after potentially lethal levels of radiation were detected in water there, a major setback for the effort to avert a catastrophic meltdown.

The operator of the facility said radiation in the water of the No. 2 reactor was measured at more than 1,000 millisieverts an hour, the highest reading so far in a crisis triggered by a massive earthquake and tsunami on March 11.

That compares with a national safety standard of 250 millisieverts over a year. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says a single dose of 1,000 millisieverts is enough to cause haemorrhaging. [ID:nL3E7ER02S]

Plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. later said the extremely high radioactivity readings might have been wrong, adding the levels were being re-checked.

"The situation is serious. They have to pump away this water on the floor, get rid of it to lower the radiation," said Robert Finck, radiation protection specialist at the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority, speaking before the operator expressed doubt about the high reading.

"It's virtually impossible to work, you can only be there for a few minutes. It's impossible to say how long it will take before they can gradually take control."

The Japanese government said the overall situation was unchanged at the plant, 240 km (150 miles) north of Tokyo. Two of the plant's six reactors are now seen as safe but the other four are volatile, occasionally emitting steam and smoke.

"We did expect to run into unforeseen difficulties, and this accumulation of high radioactivity water is one such example," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano told a news briefing.

Yukiya Amano, director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said the emergency could go on for weeks, if not months. "This is a very serious accident by all standards," he told the New York Times. "And it is not yet over."

Now there's an oxymoron to end all oxymorons, "radiation soars". Two words you never want to hear. I just love hearing the news media report things like, "suits designed to protect you from high radiation". There is no such thing.

The kind of radiation that reactors produce requires several feet of steel, concrete, water and lead to protect people. And then there is the sodium iodide pills. If it makes you feel better. :roll:

I don't want to feel better. I want to shoot lasers out of my eyes and fight crime.
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

You know--not to make lite, or is it light--? of a bad situation---I still and will in some sense--( a very very sad sense ) ALWAYS FIND IT UTTERLY and almost impossibly difficult to EVEN IMAGINE how DUMB most people truly are---

Sorry for being so forward--but I mean it is what it is--- All of these things are at first--reported, then repeated, then spun and controlled-- and all ( EVERY SINGLE BIT ) for HUMAN CONSUMPTION--

It literally amazes me when I run into people who accept it as FACT, despite having ZERO KNOWLEDGE of the data used to support the so called FACTS-- Surely that makes little sense to most people----otherwise there would be a hellava lot less TV SHOWS--NEWS CHANNELS--AND INSANELY RIDICULOUS reality programs available for entertainment-- Not to mention web sites.

Anyway----Who was it that said " Love the suit "---

I must ask--Where can I get one? :lol:

I am left to conclude that most all peoples---are scared of the truth--yet they never stop to think that ( THEY ) know this already----there are/is a word for such.

Just something to consider--one can hope some will--if even for a brief period of time.
