Fukushima worker assumes melted fuel has gone into suppression chamber

Following up this article..Water level was only 60cm from the bottom in reactor2

The water level turned out to be only 60cm. Where is the fuel ? Is it in the water ?

Actual Fukushima worker Happy11311 assumed that the melted fuel might have gone into the suppression chamber.





I got to think the melted fuel of reactor 2 have maybe got into the suppression chamber through down comer pipes. If so, the fuel clad produced hydrogen by reacting with H2O inside of the suppression chamber, and it caused hydrogen explosion.






I wondered why suppression chamber had a hydrogen explosion at reactor 2, but I got to think the hypothesis  may explain why from today’s endoscope operation.




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.
