It has almost been 7 years now since the Fukushima Nuclear Plant meltdowns and look where we are, the Toshiba Corporation is still trying build devices to research the leaks - damage. Nuclear power is too dangerous, we have no way of correcting mistakes when they happen and yet there are idiots in the United States that support nuclear power.

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Toshiba Corp.’s energy systems unit on Friday unveiled a long telescopic pipe carrying a pan-tilt camera designed to gather crucial information about the situation inside the reactor chambers at Japan’s tsunami-wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant.

The device is about 43 feet long and designed to give officials a deeper view into the nuclear plant’s Unit 2 primary containment vessel, where details on melted fuel damage remain largely unknown.

The Fukushima plant had triple meltdowns following the 2011 quake and tsunami. Finding details about the fuel debris is crucial to determining the right method and technology for its removal at each reactor, the most challenging process to safely carry out the plant’s decades-long decommissioning.
