Tokyo (CNN)A robot operating deep inside a failed reactor at the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant north of Tokyo has revealed what appears to be stalactites of melted nuclear fuel, the plant's operator has said.

"This was the first time that we could confirm the status inside the pedestal," TEPCO spokesperson Maki Murayama said. "This is a big step towards the decommission process."

Wow it has taken this long to just look at the melted fuel, since the meltdowns happened in March of 2011. Now they are starting to admit that decommissioning will likely take decades. Notice their lead suits wrapped around them like a diaper, in an attempt to reduce the amount of radiation to the chest & groin area.
