Melted nuclear fuel seen inside second Fukushima reactor

Melted nuclear fuel seen inside second Fukushima reactor | 20 Jan 2018 | The operator of Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant said Friday that a long telescopic probe successfully captured images of what is most likely melted fuel inside one of its three damaged reactors, providing limited but crucial information for its cleanup. Tokyo Electric Power Co. said the fishing rod-like device carrying a camera went deep into the plant's Unit 2 primary containment vessel. The images indicated that at least part of the [radioactive] fuel had breached the core, falling to the vessel's floor, TEPCO spokesman Takahiro Kimoto said. Experts say they believe part of the fuel still remains inside the core of the Unit 2 reactor, while almost all of the nuclear fuel rods in Unit 1 and 3 melted and fell to the bottom of the primary containment chambers.
