Or has more happened since then?
Check the OP. All new information on the reactors from their operator, TEPCO, and all the sources I trust is there.

So anyways a new article about the Supermoon event soon has come up from Yahoo; the person who discusses is from NASA
Fear mongering, or could this possibly have an effect on this situation? (I don't think so)

The BBC's Roland Buerk says: "In the towns near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, people have been scanned for contamination. Officials say a few have shown slightly raised levels of radiation, but nowhere near dangerous levels. Japan relies on nuclear power stations for nearly a third of its electricity. But trust in the technology, and power company officials, is being shaken. 'I don't know whether we can believe them. Not only their comments, but also the Japanese government and those of the prefectures,' one man told me. After being checked, people are being offered places at evacuation centres around Fukushima. But for some that is not far enough. They are leaving for other parts of Japan."

People have tried to claim that when the moon is at it's perigee (closest) and apogee (furthest) natural disasters become more frequent but nobody has even been able to produce empirical evidence to support their claims.

The moon will however exert a stronger tidal force, but nothing that people would be able to notice. Also there might be a slight increase in the strength and frequency of moonquakes, but that doesn't affect us at all.

My advice since we only get to see one of these every 20 years or so would be to get some buddies that like astronomy, a couple cases of beer, a warm fire and some lawn chairs. Stare up at the sky and enjoy the view.

Tidal force... not enough to affect any of the water being used to cool the fuel rods/reactors, am I right? (I'm pretty sure it won't though)

Press Release on Fukushima Daini(Plant #2) - Reactor #1, #2, #3 have all reach full cold shutdown and are stable. Reactor #4's cooling system fully repaired and should reach full cold shutdown in the next 24 hours.

No the moon will not affect anything. Unless it falls from the sky directly onto the reactors.

What
It's gone from "failing" to "full shutdown" without many details in between!?
What is this--
Great news though
post #1270 of 2836
Good, now we just need to worry about unit 2 at Daiichi; looks like everything's calming down now.
