Fukushima reactor shell ruptured?

Andrea Forghieri

A question that bothers me

We know that spent fuel rods are stored in pools on top of reactors 4, 5 and 6.

Does anyone know if there *were* such pools in reactors 1, 2, 3 too? (please note the past tense, because the roof of those buildings - sadly - is no more)

Bill Gates goes (mini) nuclear

And dont forget the water.

Before you install one in your basement or add four wheels and drive away ,make sure you have at hand a few billions liters of water, 'cause you need it to make steam and spin the turbine.

For my own safety I'd rather have a few big, well guarded reactors than thousands plants spread randomly around the world, with no one looking after them.

(If I was a terrorist I'd might prefer the latter option though.)

OMFG, what have you done?

Now perfect !


Dear Sirs,

as of today, and after taking some flack from your readers, your site's look is just perfect: a touch of web 2.0 over the good ol' site.

The "fixed width" whining is an nonsense. How someone could possibly like reading a paragraph that is more than 450px width, is beyond human comprehension.

Thumb Down

More polished, less distinctive

Old layout was somehow odd, but way more distinctive :

I'd like to have back :

- bigger fonts for headlines

- comments icons!! ('specially "I'll get my coats" and the dead vulture)

- site header

Things worths keeping :

- tab pane with top stories

- other "banner sized" links to relevant stories

I won't remove you from my bookmarks, though.
