Dean Wilkie, nuclear reactor operations, management, construction and plant engineering at a U.S. Department of Energy test reactor in Idaho: I’m very disgusted with Tepco not knowing where the corium is right now. […] I’m not sold on the idea that the fuel keeps going to the center of the Earth — it would be nice if it did, that’s one way to get rid of it. Because now they’re talking about going in and trying to retrieve all of it — which I believe is impossible to do. […]
Amy Browne, host: Do you think that all of the reactors have potentially lost the ability to contain this fuel […]?
Wilkie: I think Units 1 through 3 have.
