More than half of the injected water didn’t reach reactor3 to cause meltdown in 311


According to NHK’s original research, only 45% of the water injected by fire-engine reached reactor3, and reactor3 ended up having meltdown.

NHK simulated the situation with experts to conclude 55% of the injected water leaked to condenser out of the reactor.

2 years have passed but it’s not even fully analyzed what exactly happened in Fukushima plant.

Plus de la moitié de l’eau injectée n’a jamais atteint l’intérieur du réacteur 3 ce qui a provoqué la fusion du 11-3


Selon les recherches originales de NHK, seulement 45% de l’eau injectée par les pompiers est entrée dans le réacteur 3 et sa fusion en a résulté.

NHK a simulé la situation avec des experts pour conclure que 5 5% de l’eau injectée a fuit à l’extérieur par les condenseurs.
2 ans sont passés mais on n’a toujours pas complètement analysé ce qui s’est exactement passé dans la centrale de Fukushima.

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.
