US Los Alamos National Laboratory developed the technology to detect the exact place of melted fuel in reactors

On 10/17/2012, Los Alamos National Laboratory announced they developed the technology to detect where the melted fuels are in reactors.
They put multiple detectors on both sides of the reactor buildings for 1 ~ 2 months. The system uses scattering phenomenon of elementary particles from space.

Le laboratoire national américain de Los Alamos a développé une technologie pour détecter la localisation exacte des combustibles fondus dans les réacteurs

Le 17 octobre 2012, le Los Alamos National Laboratory a annoncé qu’ils ont développé une technologie pour détecter où sont situés les combustibles fondus dans les réacteurs.
Ils ont mis de multiples détecteurs des deux côtés des bâtiments d’un réacteur pendant 1 à 2 mois. Le système utilise un phénomène de dispersion des particules élémentaires analysé dans l’espace.


About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
