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.

    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…..
