Natural disaster could be the result of clandestine nuclear tests. Well, waited: radiation from Japan, where you can not even cope with the emergency plant "Fuksima-1", came to Russia. Special analysis of daily air samples taken at the station Sadgorod in the suburbs of Vladivostok in the period from March 26 to 29, showed the presence in the atmosphere of traces of radioactive iodine-131, said Tuesday the head of the Primorsky Hydrometeorological Boris cube. However, he said, the concentration of this element more than 100

Plant workers talking

The earth shook and the lights dimmed. Radiation levels jumped. After a few days of isolation, the two Japanese workers who escaped, told on television about the chaos in the reactors.

Grateful and curious Japanese, as well as residents of other countries demanded stories employees plant "Fukushima", who were on duty when the 9-magnitude earthquake shook the facility on March 11. But Japanese officials quickly isolated the men to treat all kinds of contamination, as well as the physical and emotional trauma. The Japanese have traditionally been very strictly abide by the laws of confidentiality. On Sunday night, the Japanese

In the third Japanese nuclear reactor does not operate a system of emergency cooling

In the affected earthquake disrupted Japanese nuclear emergency cooling system at another reactor, as reported on Sunday Japanese security of nuclear energy.

Emergency cooling system is no longer functioning in the third reactor, "Fukushima". Japanese security of nuclear energy requires urgent restoration of water supply reactor, said at a press conference Nuclear and Industrial Security Service in Japan.

On Saturday in the first reactor explosion destroyed the roof and upper walls, threatening radiation leak, although the government later reported that the explosion did not affect the main part of the reactor and that only a small amount of radiation was

On Earth, the era of megakatastrof

22.04.2011

The devastating earthquake in Haiti and the coast of Japan caused some scientists to suggest that in the near future, the Earth are waiting for more catastrophic disasters of this nature. As reported by LiveScience, the conclusion made by seismologists Laboratory U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in Colorado buffer Charles and David Perkins. After reviewing data on earthquakes in the past 110 years, experts have noted that the powerful tremors are grouped in time, forming a seismological "clusters." One of these clusters lasted from 1952 to 1965. Culminating with the beginning of a powerful

Emergency mode declared at nuclear power plants in Japan after the failure of the cooling system

Japanese authorities have declared a state of emergency for anotherNuclear Power Plant — "Fukushima-2"— In connection with the failure after the earthquake of the cooling system at three reactors. Earlier, emergency regime was introduced at the plant "Fukushima-1", located 12 kilometers from "Fukushima-2", due to the termination of electricity supply needed to cool the reactor.

The pressure inside the reactor remains stable but growing in a protective shell. Experts of the company do not yet know whether the need to resort to the deliberate release of radioactive gas to prevent a further increase in pressure, reports AP.

Recall the
