Robot pinpoints leaks on Fukushima reactor

A robot at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has for the first time identified exactly where highly radioactive water is leaking from a reactor.

Plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, on Wednesday succeeded in sending a remote-controlled robot close to the lower part of the No.1 reactor's containment vessel.

A camera on the robot captured images of water leaking from 2 holes in the containment vessel into the building housing the reactor.

Radiation levels in the area were extremely high at 0.9 to 1.8 sieverts an hour.
