2. good news
someday the world needs to build a monument to those who have stayed @ the
reactor and the fireman and policeman who volunteered to go there and help too.

6. they also just bored holes in the roofs
of #5 and #6. So they don't explode from pressure and hydrogen accumulation.(AFP,sorry no clean link)

Of course, it's easy for me to say not *me* being there, but it shouldn't be that hard. drilled 3 holes in each roof for venting.

remember, #5 and #6 are actually not very close to the other reactors. they have only been getting slightly warm and only have spent fuel in cooling pools. think the water was getting low.

these are the ONLY reactors that will be usable after this crisis is over. the others are ruined.

10. Kyodo have taken the 'Crawl' down - no other news :(
they have not posted anything regarding this story since removing the crawl, which stated it was a release from TepCo. I do hope this doesn't mean it was a hoax - like the 'rescue' today.

:shrug:

13. Doubt it.
five and six are in pretty solid shape, all they needed to do was get some water into the pools and there isn't a radiation problem on that side of the plant so it makes sense they'd do that about now.

Those pools were never really the issue though, it wasn't going to be a problem unless something so bad happened that they couldn't work anywhere near the plant.

3&4 being stabilized is when it'll be time to celebrate.
