I am amazed, almost speechless about what is happening over there. Hope everyone makes it alright and they get that reactor under control.

We won't. The reason Chernobyl was such a disaster was because they weren't running their plant with proper security in place (the had actually turned off the core cooling and other stuff to run unauthorized experiments) and safety has been dramatically increased since then as well. I would expect that at most, they would collapse the structure in on itself and that would be that, no need for the concrete and such like before, they only needed that because of the explosion to cover the radioactive material. If proper procedure is followed, this will hopefully demonstrate to the public how safe nuclear energy is in all reality today.

sure you can detect a tsunami but when they move at 500mph and it started 80 miles off the coast there is mere seconds to warn people, nobody was warned, no time to do it.

and no there is no way and never will be a way to detect an earthquake.

Here's some more interesting tidbits, as far as it goes for now.

if japan was prepared for this then there would not have been thousands of lives lost they would of evacuated early. Japan is in the worse spot in the world but thye continue to build & expand.

When will they realize that where they are located isnt worth it.

didnt think so, an i was more or less thinking about the earthquake, as that cause the tsunami, is there litterly no way to even estimate, by maybe tracking the tectonic plates, am not a geologist or anything (as you will guess from my bad spelling) what is the reason we cant predict earthquakes

We can tell that there is stress on a plate but when it comes to geology it can centuries for that stress to break, we can say that there will be a 9.0+ earthquake on the San Andreas Fault in the next 50 years but we can't tell when it will happen beyond that. and even that is a very rough estimate, they have been saying that the New Madrid Fault line in the central US is ready to pop for 20 years and still nothing.

They love their own land too much just to let it go just for safety. Call it naive, but as technologically advanced Japan is, there's a reason they still observe festivals and keep their shrines whole.

Also, considering what has happened, they have been very well-prepared and responsive to the disaster. It could have well been thousands dead in the first hours. If this kind of thing were to happen here where I am (Philippines), you will be fishing my corpse out of the Indian Ocean amidst what used to be bits of Manila. (hope that doesn't discourage xd, though)
