Fukushima nuclear plant may have suffered “melt-through”, Japan admits
Fuel rods have “probably” breached containment vessels – a more serious scenario than “core meltdown” – according to report.
The report, which is to be submitted to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said fuel rods in reactors No 1, 2 and 3 had probably not only melted, but also breached their inner containment vessels and accumulated in the outer steel containment vessels.
Or in laymans terms they are fucked.
