    Forging a Safer Nuclear Future for Japan

    As Japan rebuilds after the devastating earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear crisis, its nuclear engineers should reconsider the safety standards of the country’s reactors and seriously consider the likelihood of a reactor facing a disaster it was not designed to withstand.

    5 Early Lessons From Japan's Nuclear Crisis

    As Japan struggles to find ways to cool its damaged nuclear reactors, it is increasingly clear that it is in the world’s best interest to ensure that nuclear operators can effectively handle unpredictable and even extreme external events that might impact their installations.

    Are Japan's Efforts in Vain?

    Japan has evacuated its citizens from the area within nineteen miles of the damaged Fukushima nuclear reactors, but there are concerns that the country might not be able to feed or shelter more evacuees if the region in danger grows.

    Pivotal Moment in Japan?

    Much remains unknown as Japan attempts to cool the nuclear reactors and spent fuel rods at its damaged Fukushima nuclear plant, including whether restoring electricity to the cooling systems will help prevent the crisis from growing.

    Spent Fuel Pool Concerns in Fukushima

    Japanese engineers are hoping that by restoring power to the cooling system in one of the damaged nuclear reactors at Japan’s Fukushima power plant, they will be able to restart cooling the reactor core.

    Japan Crisis Not As Bad As Chernobyl

    As Japanese authorities work to cool the nuclear reactors damaged by the earthquake and tsunami, it remains unclear how much radiation is being released into the environment.

    Tsunami Still More Devastating Than Nuclear Threat

    The earthquake and subsequent tsunami that caused substantial damage to Japan’s nuclear reactors should encourage nuclear regulators to reconsider the magnitude of natural disasters that they design plants to withstand.

    Cause for Concern at Japan’s Damaged Fukushima Nuclear Plant

    In Japan’s damaged Fukushima nuclear plant, six spent fuel pools and three reactor cores have the potential to release significant radiation into the atmosphere.

    • TV/Radio Broadcast

    Unclear Whether Exposed Spent Fuel Rods Will Catch Fire

    Conditions at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear reactors, damaged by the devastating earthquake and subsequent tsunami, remain tense, as water levels around the spent fuel rods in one reactor continue to drop, exposing the rods to the air.

    Nuclear Situation in Japan Getting Worse?

    As Japanese plant operators attempt to cool the remaining reactor cores at the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant, they must work with limited information, since the reactor buildings are highly radioactive, making it too dangerous to send workers in to get more accurate readings.
