Mr.Oyama, a city councilor of Minami soma posted videos of the black substance.

[…] about 1cm thick on gutter.

They assume it’s lichen […]

[…] some people assume it’s a part of nuclear fuel from reactor 3.

    people who can attend, please do;

    if you cant attend, there is a live streaming available on the site…

    Fukushima needs ALOT more focus and attention, world scientists & nerds need to group together for an unlikely solution to the fukushima menace, time is running out.

    Looking at the way this stuff is dispersed, I am wondering if it could still be the so-called "black rain"? I know they had some of that back in March/April following the explosions, etc., but is it possible that they would still be having visibly black rain today? Or, alternatively, perhaps it is just the run-off that comes from the mountains every time it rains?

    Could this be the same powder? "Corium (and also highly irradiated uranium fuel) has an interesting property: spontaneous dust generation, or spontaneous self-sputtering of the surface. The alpha decay of isotopes inside the glassy structure causes Coulomb explosions, degrading the material and releasing submicron particles from its surface.[42] However the level of radioactivity is such that during one hundred years the self irradiation of the lava (2 × 1016 α decays per gram and 2 to 5 × 105 Gy of β or γ) will fall short of the level of self irradiation which is required to greatly change the properties of glass (1018 α decays per gram and 108 to 109 Gy of β or γ). Also the rate of dissolution of the lava in water is very low (10−7 g·cm−2 day−1) suggesting that the lava is unlikely to dissolve in water.[43]"

    This is clearly some spillage by the guy who carries the radium bottles around. Just got careless one day.

    "They assume it’s lichen […]"

    That's great comedy. It doesn't look like the guy picking it up assumes it lichen. Of course, maybe he dresses like that everyday cause he thinks he looks cool…..
