Title: Camera inserted in Fukushima No.4 reactor
Source: NHK
Date: Friday, March 16, 2012 21:21 (JST)

Debris from a hydrogen explosion and large volume of floating objects were observed inside the Number 4 reactor [...]

Wreckage, which included two pieces of long, thin sheets, was seen at the bottom of the reactor and a large number of floating white objects were also observed.

Similar floating matter was also found in the spent fuel pool inside the building, causing the pool’s visibility to fall from 5 meters last month to one meter now. [...]

It says removal of the spent fuel from the pool requires a visibility of at least 7 meters and that it will investigate how the floating matter was created.

    We HAVE to shut down all nuclear reactors ASAP! Unfortunately that is just a necessary first step, but it is not sufficient to solve the problem. Before we can be free from the threat of an ELE, we must also solve the spent fuel problem, which could very well destroy the earth even if all reactors are shut down.

  • The NRC transcripts indicated that they believed unit 4 spent fuel pool was gone.

    The current images of the plant suggest that spf 4 is now gone, even if it survived March's explosions.

    Is this NHK story more propaganda?

      Majia – the early reports to the NRC did in fact report that SFP4 was completely empty and burned.

      Subsequent reports indicate they were incorrect in that assumption.

      I think it's safe to say they are partially burned at least now, and maybe completely burned. But I don't believe they were completely burned back on march.

      Looks to me like there are some intact rods and some missing rods in those videos.

        NRC CHAIRMAN JACZKO: And again, because I’m going to get asked the question, where’s that coming from. I’m going to say it’s from a team that is in Japan that is embedded that is working closely with the Japanese utility and the Japanese regulatory agency, is that correct?

          Well, they later did come back and say that they were wrong, and there are pretty recent pictures of the SFP4 walls being at least mostly intact.

          And they have detailed photos of the reinforcing work they did to the bottom of the pool and the walls.

          And we've seen many versions of the workers madly scrambling to save SFP4 – I can't imagine they would bother with that if it didn't still exist.

          So I assume with later photographic evidence, that the walls did not actually fall down.

          I do think they leaked the water out, and some of the fuel melted early on.

              I didn't follow the oil spill that much, but I can tell you I was pretty angry when one day – seemingly out of the blue they declared the leak fixed and from that day over the news stopped .

              I assume they were trying to pull the same coup d'etat on the truth with the "cold shutdown" announcement – except in this case they couldn't fool the public the second time.

              Generally I use my own observation of the pictures and their actions – not what they say the actions are – but what I can see them actually doing – coupled with my experience to determine what is truthful

              For example – I was skeptical of all the temp and pressure data after the explosion of #1 and most certainly after #3 – because they had no electricity, no access to the control room and the instrumentation could not have survived the blasts – yet they kept handing out temp and pressure data – it was not possible.

              I look at the explosion of #3, I know how blast patterns work and I know it didn't come from the SFP3 – it came from the core.

              On #4, you could physically see that the SFP held at least some water after they got hoses on it and filled it back up – so I don't believe the walls fell down. That's not to say they didn't have significant leaks, but I'm pretty confident the NRC report above is incorrect.

    really? you need to investigate that? the pool is full of particulate from the collapsed roof and other junk, most of which has settled to the bottom.

    there was a relatively big earthquake a few days back. all you would need is for some big chunk of stuff to shift and fall over to stir up the dust, so to speak. it will take a few weeks to settle back down.

    but its a bad thing to admit that EQ's are causing things to move around in unit 4, considering its rather sickening list.

    The technical term for this "unidentified floating white matter" is 'crap.'

    Crap is usually generated by crap-generating activities, including earthquakes, melt-downs, melt-throughs, melt-outs, chemical explosions, and nuclear explosions.

    Raw materials used to generate the crap are most likely structural and non-structural fuel, reactor, equipment, and containment components.

    There's no need to analyse it.

    ATTENTION Fukushima scientists/administrators. The white matter you are seeing floating in reactor 4 water are micro-organisms. The same thing happened at Three Mile Island. Once containment was breached and oxygen was introduced into the reactor, micro-organisms began eating(oxidizing) the metal. Quite an interesting ecosystem developed. 50,000 rems per day were no problem for these organisms. Bacteria and Archaea ate the metal. Chlorophyll-less algae and yeast metabolized the prokaryote's waste products and cells, as well as each other. Even suggestions, that some of the algae species had interesting pigments using gamma-rays as an energy source!
    Theoretically, these organisms could completely eat the reactor/fuel rods metal. Fluids cycled out could recover nearly all radioactive isotopes. Life is resilient.

    TEPCO didn't realize there was a No. 4 reactor and spent fuel pool.

    "We will investigate and study this."
    "If there is a No. 4 reactor and spent fuel pool please be assured we will only build it over the most seismically unsafe area in the world using design specifications guaranteed to fail."

    Ok. Let's review what we think we know about reactor 4. There was no fuel in reactor 4 on 311, according to TEPCO. They were about to refuel reactor 4 with new MOX fuel, high in Pu. So why are they looking at the reactor? Because the new MOX fuel was in the SFP awaiting loading. They need somewhere to put the new MOX fuel that is more secure than SFP 4. With the roof blown off building 4, the SFP is open to the air. Arnie Gundersen reported at the end of March, 2011, that SFP 4 had little or no water in it. So, it is likely that the MOX bundles have been compromised. They may be burned, in a semi molten state, or just a blob on the floor of SFP 4. It has been reported that the new MOX rod bundles had been mistakenly grouped together in SFP 4, against TEPCO policy. The new fuel bundles are supposed to be spaced well apart, so that a criticality can be avoided in case of an accident. Then comes 311, leaving TEPCO (and regular readers of ENEnews) VERY worried about what was happening in SFP 4. What does TEPCO now know about unit 4? It is likely that TEPCO knows that the new MOX bundles are now in no condition to be lifted out of SFP 4 and relocated into reactor 4. They also know that the reactor is in such bad shape that the control rods can no longer be inserted to stop fission. Nor can cooling water be circulated to the reactor to cool the MOX rods, even if they were intact, and even if they could be moved into the reactor. As it is, whatever radiological processes have been going on in SFP 4 go right into the atmosphere. To sum up, TEPCO has rods that can't be moved, and a reactor that can't maintain the rods in cold shutdown. The genie is out of the bottle, and the stopper is lost. Because these are MOX rods, burning in the open air for the next quarter of a billion years or more, it is likely that this has now become, in fact, the ELE we have all hoped wouldn't happen. Sorry, guys and gals. Bucket lists ready?

        Taters: We go through a large amount of info here every day. I keep pretty close tabs on Reactor 3 and SFP 4, which I believe to be the most threatening aspects of the Fuku situation. And I think I have this about right in the post above. The new MOX bundles were put into adjacent cells in SFP 4, and this has turned out to be a very big deal, since new bundles are supposed to be well separated as they are put into the SFP, prior to loading. This was posted here, I believe, in the last couple of weeks as ELEnews Admin has been combing through the NRC stuff (good work, Admin). But I can't find the reference just now. Man, I tend to get lost in that NRC stuff! If I happen on this part of the discussion, I'll let you know. I am also searching for a photo of the plug and cap for reactor and containment in building 4. Somebody had mentioned that reactor 4 was open on 311, and the lid in storage. But I think we know that the SFP 4 has melted new MOX bundles, in close proximity to the other new MOX bundles, and this is making for a truly dangerous problem for all of humanity. The fact that TEPCO isn't talking about this is not reassuring! Look for black Pu dust, coming soon to a town near you!

        I am thinking that all of the MSM stories on March 9 about how "plutonium is not a threat" are because this black dust is a GAME CHANGER: now the nuclear threat isn't invisible anymore, the naked eye can see the black alpha dust death. It is much harder to hide.

          Table 4.5-1 Spent Fuel Pool Data
          Background
          As shown, the spent fuel pools (SFPs) for units 14 contained different amounts of spent fuel at the time of the event, generating different heat loads. The Unit 4 SFP had the greatest heat load because the entire core had been offloaded into the SFP to support ongoing outage work.
          Approximately 60 percent of the spent fuel on site is stored in a separate building in a common spent fuel pool. This pool contained 6,375 fuel assemblies (about 80 percent of pool capacity), but the heat load was very low because the assemblies were stored in their respective units’ SFPs for 19 months or longer before being set in the common pool. Calculations determined that cooling can be lost to this pool for 30 days before it

          becomes a concern. The common spent fuel pool uses fans and air for cooling, so cooling is maintained if the seawater ultimate heat sink is lost; however, AC power is required to power the fan motors and circulating pumps.
          Dry cask storage is also used for spent fuel. At the time of the event, the station had nine casks containing 408 spent fuel assemblies.
          There are no mixed-oxide fuel assemblies in any of the spent fuel pools or in the dry cask storage facility.

        James2,

        I don't believe them either. Here is a link that shows Tepco has been caught lying about multiple issues for over a decade, faking records here, there and everywhere.

        "Officials from Tepco found that more than half of the 61 pipes it had inspected in its Fukushima plant's number three reactor showed signs of damage. Corrosion was so severe in six of the stainless steel pipes that they measured less than half their original thickness."

        Also, the reports from 2002 indicate that the MOX was headed for "reactors," plural, at Fukushima,

        "In Japan, a scandal has erupted in the last two weeks about a cover-up of potential safety flaws in the reactors in which BNFL hoped its fuel would be loaded. The Tokyo Electric Power Company, BNFL's largest customer, has admitted it failed to accurately report 29 cracks found in a 15 year period in eight reactors. An investigation has been ordered and board members of the company have resigned."

        The Asahi Shimbun, September 30, 2002
        Stunning nuke cover-up alleged at TEPCO plant

        The utility apparently faked a safety check on equipment that prevents radiation leaks. Documents indicate that Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) cheated on a safety test concerning a nuclear reactor containment vessel in 1992 in what could be the utility's most dangerous cover-up, sources said over the weekend.

      Heart, re page 54, it seems the NRC were right on the button with what we suspected, rather: they seem to be looking disaster right in the face and over here, due to lack of information, we were kind of approximating that.

      My specific contribution to this moment of the debate is that Tepco are now suspect of releasing a photo of 4SFP that bears absolutely no resemblance to what it seems was the true state of affairs at that time. 4SFP in bits, as discussed by NRC, and the photo from some library way back.

      I'm not saying I'm right but, if I am, they are a bunch of twisters.

    Whether SFP has fallen, it is still standing, or it is going to fall is irrelevant. The fact is the radiation has destroyed, is destroying, or will destroy the mechanical strength of the concrete and steel of the SPF. What do we do now to plan for the catastrophe. If it has not collapsed, she's going down and she's going down hard sometime in the future. TEPCO, government officials and business chiefs need to stop debating this and start planning for the disaster to come.

    Whats interesting to me is that these videos bare no resemblance to the major video earlier released that showed the pool in tact and with no serious rubble upon the bed of rods.

    What interest me is…looking the original explosion…analysis of the vids..showing what is left of the reactors..etc.
    How can any of the vids be real..of SFP 4.?

    I had a problem with mineral like material after running a ultrasonic mister for about 48 hours (last month). Milky water and deposits at the bottom of the bowl. I was using RO water with a TDS of 4 PPM.

    FOIA documents are located on the NRC.gov website

    Water weighs 64 lb / ft3. If the SFP has approx 50000 ft3 of water, 64 * 50000 = 3,200,000 lbs that old mangled structure must support.

    Question: Whatever happened to PattieB? Seemed like she always had an amazing amount of "insider" information…

    answer:stay grounded my friend.
    pattieb gives a lot of good searched and well together mixed informations.
    mostly perfect on time as it can possible here on board.
    the inside that you see is just a night with a clear mind in the web.
    "just" is in a relative meaning.
    i had often seen that pattieb posted links that i had founded to some hours or days before.
    i'm inside?
    loel,
    but i'm "overnighten"-maniac, what means if its kicking enough, i can spend sixty hours on it,
    nonstop.
    but for months ago there was some questions like that on the webcamfried.

    "how can it be? nuckelchen must be a tepco paid blabla.."

    anyway,
    pattieb is that what we named in german "fleissig"°,
    hm, strange that there is no english translation for "fleissig"…
    seems to me like there will be no others "fleissig",…
    ah, japanese have a translation for "fleissig", hehe

      Hey Nuckelchen, I must compliment you on your amazing productions you've so diligently contributed here for the past year. You truly have a gift. Any offers for work in video production? Your experience and knowledge here, coupled with your artistic genius surely would be a valuable addition to any production. Just sayin'…All of us here would gladly serve as references for you. :-) We definitely can vouch for your great work!

      I do admit that, for me, sometimes the language difference and your unique style of communication is not always easy to understand. But I find all of your posts fascinating nevertheless! :-) You are quite an enigma in your own right, so no need to compare yourself with PattieB. You both have been invaluable additions to this forum. :-)

      Now, back to my question about where PattieB has been…Anybody know?

      And speaking of other folks who haven't posted for awhile, I hope Or-Well is just taking a well-deserved break and refilling his artistic well. What would enenews be without his poetic genius?

      Wow, what a talented bunch! Nuchle, what about a collaboration with Or-Well's poetry, Poor Daddy's singing and your video and music editing and production skills? I'd love to see that production! :-)

      Danke!

        well,
        its more stuff on the nuke that one person could read in their livetime.
        and i think its like with mine when i sometimes read some hardcruffing updates of all what i know about it.
        then you must reboot yourself and that all needs time to will be done and understund.
        until that your head will hourly blasting away.
        when i all minds loud-posting would…
        like that i had found videos from test reactors inside, fusion ones.
        fusion is 2000°c hotter then a fission, and what should i say?
        absolute the same stuff like we had seen in the videos from 19/2 inside core rea 2.
        or that all the talking about the will happens with the nuke rubbish are based on a knowlegde in a "normal" world and not on the world like it is today.
        the atmosphere is overdosed with all kind of gasses so how can we know about anything when nuclides will be shooten in it?

        or the ground?
        go on the nasa sat side and look the images of the day from the last months.
        duststormduststormstrom
        never seen them so much and so often before.
        but they fixes their planings with a upsinking from radionukes on ground with 2-5 cm.
        that will be not possible at all.
        in usa and brd were peoples killed by sandstorms…that was so freaky new for us here in germany…or like that the last november in germany and around chernobyl were the driest november since we named it "november".
        (reason could be the close placed radiostations,chernobyl and germany had the closest systems of dosimeters…

        and after we had some really hard views on the webcams in the last weeks,
        what happens?
        march 2012 is the driest one since we named it march.
        he,
        that on the 17th…that means if would rains nonstopless from now on, it would be the dryest march since we were climbed down from the trees.i've got satpics from nov were you can see a cutted cloud linie all along the outlines from germany…

        but i cannot find time to bring such things to the end,
        to much "new" informations (means for me new) smashen…

    hey,
    i've unpacked the files.

    that will be taken some days to work on them all.

    but we could be have some luck, maybe the editions that i had used here on their last "underwater" vid will be safed and will be working on that here all.
    that was really an "amazing" effect, but more a result of a lucky hand in the night as i made it.

    oh wait,
    what is that?

      Hey Nuck! I am here but have been occupied with cleanup duties at my house after a week of Fuku Flu. Massive headaches from the wandering east-blown plume… Heard many anecdotal accounts of the same headache issues… My barber says her mother NEVER has headaches…until this week.

      I like your cleanup clip showing the floating "jellyfish". When I was a youngster I was severely stung by purple Man 'o War and I bet those white blobs pack quite a punch.

      Still not quite sure why Tepco isn't skimming the hot milky water and adding fresh, but it could be just a precarious situation and they are holding theur breath hoping it can hold out for another twenty months of heat decay. I seriously doubt they will get their wish.

    “…The helicopters also took new pictures of the spent fuel pools on the roofs of the reactor buildings and have apparently confirmed fears that the pool at reactor No. 4 has boiled dry. Although the company has been saying that the fuel rods in the pool have remained partially covered, Gregory Jaczko, chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission on Wednesday said that the best information he had at that time indicated the pool was dry and emitting high levels of radiation….”

      But they plugged it up! "* Workers made an unsuccessful attempt to plug the crack using concrete. * A second attempt made earlier today to fix the crack using a mixture of a chemical polymer, sawdust and shredded newspaper also failed. * TEPCO is preparing for a third attempt to plug the leak, using an absorbent gel which expands to contain water and is usually included in baby diapers and litter trays for pets."

    Photos from April 15, 2011.
    Caption for 15th photo down:
    “New inside images of reactor 3 released in 2010 by TEPCO
    There are many facts to be gleaned from this image to help located things in Reactors 3 and 4.
    The image is them moving MOX rods from the SPF to the reactor well.
    According to CNIC any MOX fuel brought on site had to be stored in spent fuel pools due to the strength.
    Greenpeace reported that in 1999 65 MOX elements were shipped to Fukushima.
    The first MOX rods were installed into reactor 3 at Fukushima in August 2010.
    There was another shipment to Fukushima 1 in 2003 of 32 rods that caused some attention.
    The total inventory of MOX at Fukushima and the location of all of it is a question of concern.”

    tja,
    thats one of the moxoriums down there…

    please think about when you talk about MOX–
    -how will MOX be builded?
    okay, from gas…
    like everything in the stupid physics you can do it backwards…
    okay…
    means mox into gas?
    wthell?
    hm,
    just think about it…
    example:
    there was a new delivery to japan with some tons of helifluxinuckybridium-whatevergas – moment – okay – not in gas, they send it in powder:
    http://www.IMG-Teufel.de/img_339310baa1jpg.jpg.html

    isn't powder not the new instant gas?
    nucleation?
    the prozess from gas into solid matter?
    jet-trail to condensation nuclei

    nucleation is…
    …like if you would swell and instead of stink would be a fine cloud of dust fall to ground… :-)

      Heart, us aggressive Eurosaxolatins had a good opportunity to learn common sense, for the first time, a few centuries back, but didn't know a chance in a lifetime from a chance of grand larceny. My encounter with NAs in the other continent continue to teach me a better interaction with other people. It's not that easy. And the world would have been a much much better place.

    yeah,
    the drumes are beating much more of lifecycleingrhythmens at all.
    i had the first years lessons by an indianer, like some old'drumming'wolfe or so.

    it was a great time, three years without speaking of any words,…, other boys had asked me what i was doing on the trum…(to let a drum talk with you…)
    and clear,
    i mean nothing with "dimmdada-dimm-dodo"….more nature beaten is that for what is a rhythem to me,
    because everymothanuckeling-thing is beaten in a rhythmen.

    ..The pounding like the beating of the heart ..dipping and diving and dancing to the drum.
    When I was a kid ..after the football games…we used to take a drum..via old "Indian" truck..to the woods…there…we would do a dance called an "89er".. 89 rounds around the campfire one way..89 the other…
    Our hearts and the drum beat as one and we were free…
