Late last week, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) sent a probe into the damaged second reactor at the Fukushima nuclear plant. The probe's mission was to explore the solidity of the nuclear fuel that melted back in 2011, when a tsunami hit the nuclear plant following an earthquake, causing a meltdown of the plant's three reactors.

Eight years later, TEPCO is making slow but steady progress toward decommissioning the three damaged reactors. The mission to touch the melted nuclear fuel with a remote-controlled probe aimed to find out how solid the melted fuel is and whether it could be transported away from the site. This was the first time that field crews had been able to use any device to physically interact with the fuel since the reactor meltdown.



The melted fuel in reactors 1 and 3 has not been touched yet, but information gathered from this probe will help TEPCO form a plan to move forward in the decommissioning process. Full decommissioning is expected to take 30 or 40 years

That bitch is still pissing millions of gallons of radioactive water into the pacific with no way to stop it anytime soon. Isn’t that how Godzilla an Rodan got their start?
