News Update - Professor Patrick Regan, radiation and environmental protection expert from Surrey University, has told the BBC that it appears none of the secure vessels holding radioactive material at the reactors in Japan has broken, and "it looks like the worst is over." Professor Regan said when they vented the first reactor at Fukushima on Saturday - triggering the explosion at the plant - "that vapour would almost certainly have had a little bit of radioactive material called nitrogen 16 - which is in all reactors. That decays away very quickly, in 5 to 10 seconds, but if some of the fuel rods - which appears to have been the case - were compromised, some of the radioactive material from the fuel would have got into the steam and that would also have been taken out." So a key question seems to be to what extent the fuel rods had begun to melt down.

TEPCO - Owner/Operator of Nuclear Plants in Fukushima. I've been trying to get through for updates for quite a while now. It's hit or miss if you can get into their press room.

Coverage is going down because the situation has greatly stabilized and the media is penetrating further into disaster areas so the news diverting it's attention. Sort of like what's happened with Libya. Ghaddfi's forces have been pushing the resistance back further and further and now that the world is distracted by Japan the Libyans are going to experience brutal reprisals.
yeah i understand, they have so much devastation's to cover and interview people who witnessed the tsunami and survived
there is no more tsunami flows going on right now right? seems like the replies of the earthquake have lowered

Interesting announcement - Japan's Earthquake Research Committee estimates Friday's devastating earthquake forced the tectonic plate on which Japan sits to spring eastward by about 20m (66 feet), says NHK. The researchers also say the quake caused some areas, from Iwate to Fukushima prefectures, to sink up to about 75cm.

So a few pages back, someone mentioned that new reactors are started to be built using thorium as the fuel. I remember watching a Google Tech Talk video (which I've embedded below) a few years back about liquid fluoride thorium reactors that showed thorium was MUCH safer than current fuels.

This is going to be a really stupid question because since it obviously hasn't been asked everyone else seems to get it. If the nuclear power plants were shutdown at the time of the earthquake why are the nuclear power plants still producing heat?

At least that's what it sounds like to me or does it just take a really long time to cool down these power plant reactors to a safe level?

It takes a long while to cool one down. use your computer for example.. Turn it off.. It still has heat being produced for a while.. same goes with cars.
