If it is being downplayed at least it is being done to stop people from thinking the reactor itself blew up and we are all screwed. The structures were designed to blow out like that in the case of an explosion exactly like this. It's not like it was some completely unexpected event.

Let's hope they can learn from this and build the generators higher next time and away from tsunamis so they don't get flooded.

And why are these building blowing up?? I thought they were venting them to reduce the buildup of pressure to prevent explosion.

Or are they not venting them because of the risk of radiation and waiting for them to blow up themselves?

How about not building it on a tectonic plate next time.

I just really wish the news stations would at least point out that it is not the reactors themselves that are the issue here and it is simply the cooling systems that have failed. All it does is feed fear to people that have no actual understanding of the issues at hand right now and just assume NUCLEAR=BAD!

Still...

If those things aren't cool = kaboom

right?

Yeah I wish they would stop saying the "reactor" exploded. these reactors don't explode. They don't have the same type or uranium as a bomb.

Thread Starter 
Chicago Sun Times Reports 6 injured, all missing found after explosion. Initial report was 3 injured, 6 missing.

I'm fairly certain they have been venting them as well, reactor #1 and #3 were in the worst shape from the get go though because of the coolant failures.

Was it the containment building of reactor #3 that exploded. and is this the one that has the MOX reactor!?
