Excerpts

  • Fuel located by seeing concrete steaming from the heat of nuclear mass beneath it.
  • Explosion dislodged sand surrounding reactor, which mixed with melted fuel, glassifying the mixture.
  • Years, later however everything has changed radically.
  • The hardened fuel is like Swiss cheese.
  • The top scientists discovered there is “solidified uranium” inside the lava.
  • If it gets into contact with water, far more dangerous than normal lava, radioactively much more dangerous.
