At 11:01 a.m. on March 14, the video image showing the emergency response room at the Fukushima No. 1 plant, where a teleconference was in progress, shook violently and vertically.
[Fukushima Daiichi boss Masao] Yoshida shouted 50 seconds later: “We’ve got a big problem. The No. 3 reactor just blew. Probably a steam explosion.”
Yoshida: “Main office! Main office! Main office Main office, it’s awful, awful. The unit 3 has exploded now. I think it’s probably steam.”
29 comments to Fukushima Boss after 3/11: “It’s awful, awful… No. 3 reactor just blew, probably a steam explosion” — Steam explosion, not hydrogen? Reactor blew up, not reactor building? (VIDEO)
Actors and more Photoshopped video more than a year and a half after the events with much still withheld. From the recordings, sounds like public relations was running the show but didn't bother to inform the public.
You can run, but you can't hide..What goes around..Comes around..and this world is round. Well, the world is not perfectly round because it's slightly oval, but you get my drift.
Everyone will get the drift eventually, it's a Fukushima world.
SP: Let me rephrase that: probably a radioactive hydrovolcanic steam explosion.
MOX fuel burned hot and through the containments easily when cooling was lost. Some catalyst made it go boom!
Operators of other MOX plants around the globe better take note. When water cooling is disrupted there will be a nuclear steam explosion high into the atmosphere. Steel and concrete is no match despite the thickness.
"Tokyo Electric Power Co. has acknowledged for the first time that the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima No. 1 power plant could have been avoided.
In a statement Friday, Tepco's internal reform task force said the utility was aware safety improvements were necessary long before last year's quake and tsunami caused three catastrophic core meltdowns at the facility, but failed to act because it feared the political, economic and legal consequences of implementing new measures.
"Looking back on the accident, the problem was that preparations were not made in advance," the task force, headed by Tepco President Naomi Hirose, said in the statement.
"Could necessary measures have been taken with previous tsunami evaluations? It was possible to take action" by introducing more extensive safety measures, the task force concluded.
Tepco, however, feared efforts to bolster its nuclear facilities in the event of major natural disasters would spur antinuclear sentiment, interfere with operations and increase litigation risks, according to the task force".
Prime directive stops them from intervention, if we were to evolve we would eventually curupt the whole universe and destroy the whole of nature, mankind is a perfect example of cancer and need to be exterminated to preserve the space continuime. Don't worry all life forms that have the ability to destroy its self does, natures Safegaurd. Be happy that is natural.
**The ETs have been observing humans for many centuries without making any attempt to contact (except in isolated cases). They are forbidden by Cosmic Law to interfere with the affairs of the Earth, and so they have been silently watching and making occasional contact when it was deemed appropriate and permissible. However, in 1945 a new situation arose. The United States developed the nuclear bomb, Russia soon followed and the nuclear age began in earnest. Now, these countries were not only capable of destroying each other but also all other life on earth as well. Not only did the world live under the threat of a nuclear holocaust, the countries were planning to build nuclear power plants which the ETs knew were dangerous – prone to accidents as well as polluting the atmosphere with a very harmful radiation while operating normally (a type of radiation not yet detectable by man). The ETs decided it was high time to make contact with the responsible governments (basically the US government which was the only one in 1947 with nuclear weapons) before some irreversible catastrophe occurred.**

WHAT: Noted researcher Robert Hastings, author of UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites, will moderate a distinguished panel of former U.S. Air Force officers involved in UFO incidents at nuclear missile sites near Malmstrom, F.E. Warren, and Walker AFBs, as well as the nuclear weapons depot at RAF Bentwaters.

I think your theory is close except that I believe *they* don't *care* about *us* per se. I think they are more concerned about protecting the universal environment of which Earth is one area. IOW they are trying to keep us from polluting the planet, not ourselves. I think!
I still think it was a nuclear detonation, not a steam explosion. If they can't get away with hydrogen, then steam is the favored mechanism. They don't want to even hint that the MOX might have had a criticality.
FWIW, so do I. Man has been able to confine pressurized steam and explosive gases for centuries, and has made engines therefrom. The reactor pressure vessel was 7 inch-thick steel and the secondary containment structure was four foot-thick reinforced concrete, and the Reactor 3 explosion blew fuel rods over a mile away (anyone with differing info please chime in). And, the brave 50 souls who remained on site afterward believed they were doomed. This does not sound like steam nor hydrogen.
Water has many special properties, one of them being that it is incompressible, which is why it's used in hydraulics. In other words, water in a confined space is harder than concrete, harder than steel–it can cut the latter.
No containment blew apart, "just" the lid was blown off. The PCV lid is to be sure very heavy and bolted down, but superheated steam could certainly blow it off.
A nuclear explosion would have caused much, much more heat (millions of degrees if only for a small fraction of a second), enough to cause melting and a sun-bright flash.
Physics is a b*tch baby, do some reading (that could apply to thousands of half-baked comments on this site, sadly)!

Thanks takedake for that. Made me laugh. Your comment is spot on, if a bit harsh. The time since 3/11 has certainly been a science refresher course for me on sieverts, half lives, and isotopes. Alpha, beta, and gamma, oh my!
Yoshida is the TEPCO man on the site during 3/11. Hes also the one with cancer now, and with a DENIAL of worksmans compentsation. Think they did a prelim health test just before he went to work at Fukushima, months before the accident. THEN he became sick with cancer..which they denied..too soon or too late to be "work" related. While terrible for him, its the children of 3/11 which is really pay with cancer…Just saying
