Japan — the flip side

Faced with the view that Japan is a country of high-tech, futuristic ideal, and in general, we Slavs to high-tech Japanese people never get up. Not that I wanted to downplay the Japanese high-tech achievements, but the sun has spots, and its Fukushima in Japan, which has not yet been eliminated. And it's been more than six years. Compare with the operational work in the Soviet Union during the Chernobyl disaster — yes, there was some delay in the delivery of information, but after the problems up the sarcophagus over the reactor was built in the shortest possible time.

Japan fears a ban on living near Fukushima

Japan fears a ban on living near Fukushima danger zone

February 24, 2012 the Japanese government announced that some areas near the nuclear power plant in Fukushima, closed last spring after a major tsunami will be permanently closed to the residence.

The measurements carried out between November 2011 and January 2012, confirmed the earlier results: the level of radioactivity is still milizivertov 470 per year, while the average level of radiation in normal conditions is less than one miliziverta year.

In the town of Futaba, which is located in the north-west of the plant, the pollution has spread unevenly —

Fukushimas face it, all of Gods dew

Almost 36% of children in Fukushima Prefecture were diagnosed abnormal growths on the thyroid gland, although doctors say that there is no connection between these diseases and the accident at the Fukushima nuclear ustonovki at Dai-Ichi in March last year there.

The sixth report of the Office of Health of Fukushima prefecture, released in April, included a survey of 38,114 children, of whom 35.3 percent — that is about 13,460 children — were found cysts and nodules up to 5 mm (0.197 in.) on the thyroid gland.

Still at 0.5 per cent, u186 young people nodules were detected over

Design differences between Russian NPPs

Let’s look at the differences in the construction of reactors at the Japanese plant "Fukushima-1" and those that are working and are being built in Russia. Let’s start with the technological scheme and features of the equipment. Thus, at the nuclear power plant "Fukushima" is used single-circuit diagram of the generation of steam. Here boiling reactor used: for steam turbine generator set is generated in the reactor vessel from the water, relieving heat from the reactor core is separated, i.e. freed from water droplets and then enters the separation turbine. Water circulation through the reactor is forced by pumps.

Near the Fukushima nuclear complex fixed release of highly water Danger Zone

The NPP "Fukushima" found extensive water leakage with high levels of radiation. About 45 tons of water to get out because of a crack in the wall of the body cleansing. It is not excluded from entering the ocean (about 300 liters) a gutter. To prevent further leakage of used sandbags. The work of cleaning staff has been suspended.

In dirty water containing radioactive cesium and iodine, but, according to the official representative of the company, their level slightly higher than the usual content of these elements in

Wildlife survive a nuclear accident

Wildlife survive a nuclear accident Facts

British researchers say that radiation following the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl and Fukushima is not so dangerous to wildlife, as previously thought.

Studies of the effects of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster on birds challenged by the English universities of Portsmouth. Jim Smith, a scientist with the University and colleagues from the West of England believe that their discovery applies to wildlife in the region of Fukushima. Despite the huge amount of research carried out earlier, Smith always skeptical of claims about radiation destruction of wildlife, since the damage was barely noticeable. Smith said that

Fourth reactor at Fukushima is a new, more dangerous world

Fourth reactor at Fukushima is a new, more dangerous world the danger zone

Former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland, Mitsuhey Murata, March 22, 2012 gave a speech at a public hearing in the House of consuls. Before the meeting, he said that, if the structure has been damaged fourth reactor that contains 1,535 fuel rods in the spent fuel pool 30 meters in height, will collapse, all six reactors will be shut down, and the 6375 fuel rods will be affected. The danger is that the radioactive fuel rods are not protected by encapsulation, and hence are in the open.

In Japan, the raging floods. Video

Flood

30.07.11.Na East Japanese island of Honshu, still reeling after the March earthquake and tsunami that struck a new disaster. In two prefectures — Fukushima, Niigata and raging floods. They provoked the heavy rains, do not stop for three days.

According to local authorities, one person was killed and six were missing, more than 400,000 people have been forced from their homes. In some areas of Niigata buildings, bridges and roads almost completely submerged under water, flooded rice fields. From Wednesday in Niigata and Fukushima fell more than 600 millimeters of rain. Authorities declared the highest level of risk

The situation in the nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture in Japan on o.Honsyu worsens

The situation at the nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture in Japanese o.Honsyu worsens, RBC reports referring to the Associated Press.

Zayavilipredstaviteli as the country's authorities plan to release radioactive vapors to reduce pressure inside the main reactor. They noted that engineers continue attempts to improve the cooling system was damaged in the earthquake. Nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture is one of the largest in the world.

Earlier, it was reported that at a nuclear power plant (NPP) in Japan started a fire. It is reported that as a result of today's earthquake in Onagawa (Miyagi Prefecture) lit plant,

Map of radiation exposure in Fukushima 12/11/13 June 2011

The latest information confirms that the 1, 2 and 3 reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is fully melted in just a few hours after the earthquake.

Senior politician Ichiro Ozawa in the Wall Street Journal interview expressed the assumption that because of the situation at Fukushima whole country could become uninhabitable.

The melting of the atomic nucleus is excessive melting of nuclear fuel to the point where the core is damaged, poured out, and is a threat of a powerful release of radiation into the atmosphere. However, the "penetration" of the nucleus is even
