Asahi Caption: Highly radioactive debris identified near the No. 1 reactor. A warning left in white paint reads “Kiken,” or “Danger!” The photo was taken on March 31, 2011.

The operator of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant has released a barrage of images, many taken by workers themselves, showing chaos at the site as three reactors were going into partial meltdown [partial?]. […]

One image shows a part of the site where someone had marked the ground with a chilling warning: The spray-painted word reads “Kiken,” or “Danger!” […]

The company said it received many more photos than those released, but decided to withhold 849, citing “protection of sensitive data” related to nuclear technology. […]

    Service not working TEPCO might have taken them offline

    they need to release all media – photos, voice recordings, et al.

    7 reports of nuclear fuel rod pieces being ejected from Fukushima reactors and/or spent fuel pools

    The list of related stories..impressive.

  • or-well

    They beat that
    whistleblower good
    and all they left was blood on a stud
    and a message that said
    "Don't cross the nuke 'hood!"

    ok, it's just an impression.
    looks like a crime scene.

    • It IS a crime scene.

      It's an international crime on a scale, (size and time), so massive it's almost impossible for the human brain to conceive the concept.

      The emissions continue daily. The potential for far worse looms and is most likely imminent.

      Suffering, death and destruction to the planet, all because a few lied and said it was safe. Not to mention the coverups of their crimes which is yet another crime in itself.

        Yes it is a crime scene-along with every square inch of the planet irradiated by the perpetrators of the heinous acts against mankind & nature itself!~ Since "THEY" make all the rules and punishment is based on the ability to literally "pay" for their crimes in terms of dollars while the rest of us pay with our lives-"who" will "THEY" answer to ?!! 😐 ~**

      Or. It does look staged.

    The early satellite images..showed RED and Purple and Green lights on the ground around the reactors, and in the harbor..how quickly TEPCO forgets..Guess its time to brush off the images? Anne? Nickechen? Wotcha and all the others who have been watching for almost 2 years..they all have pieces of this story.

    Oooh, scary – a sign saying "Danger". I've always assumed fuku was dangerous.
    Chilling images? Radiation is invisible.
    Hmmmm.

    A worker wrote "danger" to warn of high radiation levels.

    This reminds me of the growing pile of nuclear waste around the world.

    Since Plutonium will be radioactive for 240,000 years, there will need to be 2,500 generations keeping an eye on the waste and keeping the sign on the door saying 'DANGER, HIGHLY RADIOACTIVE"

    Can you fathom that?

    Two Thousand, Five Hundred generations will need to keep guard of nuclear waste.

    Sociologically, what will man be like in 240,000 years?

    Physically, the containers for the waste will need to be replaced every 50-100 years.

    Monetarily, the cost will be astronomical.

    Linguistically, what language will be spoken in 100,000 years, for example?

    Do you think 2,500 generations will be able to continue with the storage and safekeeping of waste?

    With wars and epidemics and toppling of governments and economic depressions, can 2,500 generations keep waste safe?

      TEE, you're assuming there will be someone around to deal with it.

      Not likely. Not likely within the next hundred years.

      At this point, the role of government will be to cushion our path to extinction, with the enrichment of a select few.

      And none of us here are on that list.

      Plutonium-244 has a half-life of about 80 million years.

      Plutonium-239 has a half-life of 24,100 years.

      Plutonium-238 has a half-life of 88 years.

    Three Eleven Eleven,

    If you have not watched it already,
    I recommend watching a documentary
    called "Into Eternity". It's about the
    country of Finland trying to create a
    waste disposal site for their nuclear
    waste to last 100,000 years and trying
    to account for all the many things that
    might happen during that time and finding
    ways to warn the future people to leave
    it undisturbed.

    imagine the spoiled filthy rich in their bunkers with all the amenities? i give them a week under there before theyre all at each others throats. i'd rather be dead than live like a rodent

  • From above. "The company said it received many more photos than those released, but decided to withhold 849, citing “protection of sensitive data” related to nuclear technology." A melted out decades old nuclear reactor. What sensitive data? The Bullshit is thicker then ever. Sensitive data such that Tepco is in it way over its head. Don't tell the bankers or stock-holders as we need to renegotiate our financing. We will turn a profit with Obamma's blessing.
