Thank you for your support as always. Maybe because I asked for recurring donation, I received more donation than usual. However, there was no subscription of recurring donation itself. (´・ω・｀)
Nitrogen injection stopped 3 times since 3/12. What’s strange is the temperature of reactors (especially reactor 1) go up while it’s stopped, but there has never been an explanation about that. [Link]
Nitrogen injection is supposed to keep hydrogen rate low so they can avoid hydrogen explosion. It has nothing to do with the temperature.
I suspect it is not just nitrogen, it’s liquid nitrogen. They try to make it look like it’s under 100℃ only with water, but they may be using liquid nitrogen. If so, the reactor is still extremely heated. In Chernobyl, liquid nitrogen was used for coolant material.
