“Worst Case” Gets Infinitely Worse at Fukushima

The risk to workers might be greater than previously thought because melted fuel in the No. 1 reactor building may be causing isolated, uncontrolled nuclear chain reactions, Denis Flory, nuclear safety director for the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency, said at a press conference in Vienna.

Nuclear experts call these reactions “localized criticality,” which will increase radiation and hamper the ability to shut down the plant. The reactions consist of a burst of heat, radiation and sometimes an “ethereal blue flash,” according to the U.S. Energy Department’s Los Alamos National Laboratory web site.

Uncontrolled nuclear chain reactions!

Just like an atomic bomb, only smaller!

And what could happen if the meltdown continues, and all the plutonium in Reactor #3 melts into a blob that’s bigger than critical mass?



August 6; what does that remind me of?

64 years ago, the United States blew up Hiroshima, killing over 110,000 people.

Many of our favorite ‘left’ wen sites have nothing about this at all, in their effort to not piss off any potential web traffic.
