Follow-up to: New Fairewinds Video: Tepco reveals "detonation shock wave" during massive explosion at Fukushima Unit 3 (PHOTO & VIDEO)
When asked if he thought the detonation shock wave at Fukushima Daiichi Unit 3 destroyed the containment vessel, Fairewinds chief engineer Arnie Gundersen replied to ENENews:
A detonation shock wave destroyed the U3 reactor building and critical supports surrounding the reactor’s containment…. after the detonation, steam clouds could be seen emanating from where the top of the containment should have been.
After being asked it that means the top of the containment vessel was missing, he said:
I think the top of containment was ajar, but not missing
