[…] Total Core-melt of Fukushima Daiichi Unit 1 on 11 or 12 March 2011 […]

Basic assumptions based on known reported data from TEPCO and NISA […]

Mark I Containment
(SOURCE: Union of Concerned Scientists)

After loss of water injection on 11 March at 16:36 there was no water flow to reactor for almost 28 hours, up to 12 March at 20:20 when sea water injection was established via fire pumps to reactor. […]

[For more on the sea water injection, see: Tepco: We should have told public this sooner… we failed to cool molten fuel after meltdowns began — Water from fire pumps went down wrong pipes]

[The data] points to a conclusion that a substantial core melt in reactor unit 1 has happened starting in the night from 11 to 12 March and going on up to the start of injection of sea water on 12 March at 20:20.  It is possible that the vessel has melted through already before increase in PCV pressure on 12 March at 0:49 hours, 8 hr 13 minutes of no cooling, and molten core has penetrated the drywell [containment vessel] as no water was there. […]

Naoto Kan, Former Prime Minister of Japan, Dec. 12, 2013 (at 14:45 in): “If […] the melted fuel had gone through that concrete, that concrete bottom of the containment vessel, we would not be able to be sitting in this room [in Tokyo].”

  1. Thanks again for staying on this very important story. Even the Guardian has been muzzled, finding valid data on this ongoing disaster is getting much harder. The poisons are obviously here in CA……we have dead fish, big dolphins and sharks here in the bay………normally, they never come this close, but the sea is dying, and they need the oxygen.
    In Bodega Bay, they are saying we have a “low oxygen” area killing the fish, attributed to global warming. Starfish are melting into goo, then fall into black pieces, and fall back into the water. Sardines are gone, no crab this year. Salmon are yellow.
    Dead sea turtles are seen in large numbers everywhere. Dogs that ate some that hit the beach died instantly. This is Armageddon, and the corporate creeps in power would rather see everyone dead than admit we are in a desperate struggle for survival………..in truth, we cannot win.
    I can go on, but this site has been the best in covering these stories. I don’t know who got to the management of the Guardian, but it now reminds one of a US site……full of trash.
    In my case, it doesn’t matter much, but for millions who think they have a life ahead of them much like the ones they have experienced to date are in for a devastating reality.
    Your work on this story is much appreciated. I will send the link to friends, and advise all who come here to do the same.
