Activity at Fukushima - Very large tower / Crane like object moving around between reactors 3 and 4
Watching the Fukushima stream now on youtube and I can see a mobile crane/tower looking object moving around between reactors 3 and 4. It looks quite large, maybe 4+ stories tall. I watched it move into the screen from the far left about 30 minutes ago, head to reactor 4 then move back to reactor 3.

Any idea's on what this could be? I'm very curious.

Also, I noticed that when I view the tepco cam on their site I can't see it at all around where it is on the youtube stream, odd or what...

Youtube stream: [link to www.youtube.com]

Side by side with tepco stream: [link to lucaswhitefieldhixson.com]

It's current location is behind the tower at reactor 3.

Currently stretched horizontally behind reactor 4. So currently out of camera view.

But wow this thing is huge, went from vertical to horizontal and stretched longer than reactor 3 to reactor 4 in the background.

I'd say it's probably atleast 50 meter high.

Just left through the right side of the screen. It was some type of large boat out in the ocean. Possibly a large water pump they may use in the future. But yeah they're done with everything for now anyways.

Yes, I saw the crane too. I assume it must be remote-operated to be that close?

Whatever it was doing, at least they are doing something!

Just clicked on it and saw a dude in a gas mask scuttling around. Weird.
