At least 50 killed; tsunamis feared as massive quake hits Japan - CNN.com

IT is sad/weird how it was report only 50 folks now it is looking more like 10000 and counting.

Reactor 1 has had an explosion, and the Japan govt is saying for the first time that a meltdown is most likely occuring. Also, there is a second reactor that an explosion is apparantly imminent. The 1st reactor is confirmed to be leaking cesium-137, a very volatile element with a long half-life, among other things.

Very bad here. Maybe not a chernobyl but the damage, and the consequences very well may rival it.

THIS is......Horrific

Tide of 1,000 bodies overwhelms quake-hit Japan - Toshiba

And now they are in they're fourth day without power and water. HELL it could be months before they have power? IF they don't have a meltdown in any of the reactors. HOw long does it take to clean up a disaster like this and get a Nuke back online???
HOLY......Hell.

My dad is a retired AF officer, and has a degree in Nuc Engineering. We were talking about this yesterday, and it was a very interesting discussion, but bottomline, the reactors that have had the partial meltdowns are done. Just put a barrier around them and let them sit for a loooooong time. The good news though is that in all the cases so far, the actual containment vessels have reportedly held. The outer shells that blew up were outer structures, not primarily responsible for limiting radioactivity, although they did serve that function for any extraneous radiation.

Another note, as to the difference to Chernobyl, just as an interesting aside, is that Chernobyl used a graphite moderator, which collects radiation and slows the nuclear reaction. When it was on fire, the graphite moderators actually caught on fire, and spewed the radiation up high in to the atmosphere, thus causing the extensive following damage. These reactors, and all united states reactors use a water based moderator, so if it there is a meltdown, the radioactive particles are hooked to steam, which while it needs to be released to avoid pressure buildup, will dissipate quickly, and will not harm the primary containment vessel.

Even with all that, let's hope that these reactors are neutralized quickly, and the surrounding population cared for.

It takes so long because even when they shut them down they keep generating heat. Kind of like when you turn off your oven and it takes a while to fully cool down.

BS apology. How could you not think what you were saying isn't offensive or dumb. People don't go out of their way to say stuff like that unless they are truly dumb. WNBA must have cracked down.

I feel much the same way about my earlier joke but at first it didn't seem like it was the huge of a disaster.
