Message Subject ANTI-DOOM LIST: 10 things to do before TEPCO starts tinkering with reactor #4
Poster Handle RadChick
Post Content

Theo Theofanous, Professor of Nuclear Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara, March 16, 2011 (at 55:00 in): In the fourth reactor we had an explosion in the top of the fuel pool. So thatís the fourth reactor which up to this point had shown no indication of difficulty. Now we have fire at the top of the pool and now we have an explosion, which destroys the roof ...To me thatís a very big concern. The situation is the following: Reactors 1 and 3 have lost those pools and the fuel is basically destroyed in there. Reactor 4, the same situation...The question now is going to be Ė this morning I was trying to puzzle how do we cool those pools up here? I have been advising through some channels that consult with me for the government, Iíve been advising them to be ready if necessary, to controllably collapse this whole pool into the floor. Because as long as its sitting up there, thereís no way to cover it [with water] Basically, controllably with explosive, the floors cut through, and then cut this pool down.
