US, N.Korea differ on plutonium program
North Korea and the United States differ on several points of their agreement on the North's nuclear moratorium.

The 2 sides announced late Wednesday that North Korea agreed to halt nuclear and long-range missile tests and uranium enrichment in Nyongbyon.

The country says it will also accept inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency to monitor the moratorium.

In return, the United States will provide 240,000 tons of nutritional aid to the North.

2 plants to undergo checks for multiple faults
Two Japanese nuclear power plants will undergo fresh inspections after new research suggested they are more vulnerable to seismic activity than thought.

The move follows revelations that active faults could simultaneously shift and trigger bigger earthquakes than the plants are built to withstand.

Research last year showed that the March 11th quake occurred when multiple active faults off the coast of the Pacific Ocean in northern Japan moved simultaneously.

Fifteen 'Near-Misses' at U.S. Nuclear Plants in 2011
[link to www.ens-newswire.com]

[snip]

Many of these 15 "near misses" occurred because reactor owners either tolerated known safety problems or took inadequate measures to correct them, Lochbaum finds.

More technical, but just as troubling is the problem with "component design basis inspections."

"While it was good that the NRC identified these problems, each CDBI audits only a very small sample of possible trouble spots," writes Lochbaum.

For example, the CDBI at the Harris nuclear plant in North Carolina examined just 31 safety-related items among literally thousands of candidates. That audit found 10 problems.

10 out of 31...



This article is scary.
I think it is a matter of when, not if.
Unless serious and immediate changes are made
in the way nuclear power is administered and regulated
we are about to have a rude awakening.

Words on a piece of paper are not going to
stop it. Somebody with some clout in DC is going to
have to champion these issues and get the exposure
needed to affect change.

You're probably right but I think at least 10-15 reactors will be restarted during this year. The amount of money invested in the reactors is enormous and they are not going to throw it away. The Japanese economy/industry need power and they will get it. Common sense and big money doesn't always walk hand in hand...

That was the day reactor 3 melted down. Reactor 1 had melted down the day before. Tepco had been venting on and off because the pressure was so high. Then it exploded. More venting after that.

A partial meltdown was reported to be possible at unit 3.[19] At 13:00 JST reactors 1 and 3 are vented to release overpressure and then re-filled with water and boric acid for cooling, and to inhibit further nuclear reactions

bright light = radiation
holding sphere = containment vessel

then think of putting a pin prick in the sphere in a dark room.

you would see the light from the prick, and marking a spot on the wall.

as we know, you cannot see it without specialised equipment.

Following up this article..Thick smoke from Fukushima plants again

The “night smoke” has become thicker than ever. You can’t even see the reactor buildings.

At this moment, the weather is sunny, it’s not raining or snowing.

JNN ‘s camera was working at the beginning. The smoke may look like it’s from around reactor 4.

During the recent reporter visit there was mention of an onsite Incinerator to burn general garbage generated from workers.

Scientists: Far more cesium released than previously believed

[snip]

A mind-boggling 40,000 trillion becquerels of radioactive cesium, or twice the amount previously thought, may have spewed from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant after the March 11 disaster, scientists say.

While the latest study said 15-20 quadrillion becquerels of cesium-137 was released into the atmosphere, the Japan Atomic Energy Agency estimated the amount at 8.8 quadrillion becquerels. Similar data released by other researchers both in Japan and overseas ranged between 7 quadrillion and 35 quadrillion becquerels.

Eyewitness videos reveal secrets of Japan's tsunami

THE world looked on in horror a year ago, as news agencies broadcast eyewitness videos of Japan's devastating tsunami. Now researchers have used two of these videos to provide new insight into the raging currents involved. This sort of information is crucial to authorities in tsunami-prone zones worldwide as they reconsider their plans in the wake of a disaster that saw almost 20,000 people swept to their deaths.

The engineers behind the analysis are now calling for video cameras to be routinely deployed for tsunami monitoring. "We have the technology: security cameras," says Costas Synolakis at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. "All we have to do is point them in the right direction...

Failed Fukushima offsite center shown to media
A nuclear emergency response center that proved useless during the Fukushima nuclear disaster was shown to the media for the first time since March 11th last year.

The facility, called an "offsite center," is located about 5 kilometers away from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station.

It was supposed to serve as a frontline base for central and local government officials to gather information and lead evacuation efforts. Officials from plant operator Tokyo Electric Power were also due to work from the center.

French nuclear energy giant Areva suffered a massive loss in 2011.

This reflects how difficult a year it has been for the world's nuclear industry after the accident at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant last March.

Areva announced on Thursday that its losses last year reached 2.4 billion euros, or about 3.2 billion dollars.

Areva says the production of plutonium-mixed fuel for Japan have also stalled since the March 11th disaster.
