And they will NEVER explode.

But...if the cooling system is down and it is obviously overheating, then there IS possibility of it exploding due to the heat?

And mass radiation in the air is possible either way right?

I think there should be an FAQ on the OP as well, but the OP has done enough work on the updating.

+REP for him by the way.
This type of reactor would not explode Chernobyl style from a meltdown. It would release massive amounts of radiation but it would not explode. Don't think massive mushroom cloud, the material isn't nearly enriched enough. The reactor could explode from pressure but it wouldn't be a nuclear explosion due to fission.

The amount of nuclear power plants seems alittle much for the size of that island...

An extremely shallow thread. Everyone here is worried about how this will affect the US or Canada. Has anyone for once thought about the actual victims: the Japanese. Waht about them if anything does happen? Nope I dont think so. Very insular thinking. Grow up people, you guys will have a couple of days to your behinds outta there. The Japs wont. Seems kinda ironic, if it actually happens would be like a wierd payback for the 2 n bombs.... now start the flaring please

in all honesty, i will admit, that i was/am more worried about the future of nuclear acceptance. Just like Chernobyl, people will be all paranoid and stuff, and not let society progress.

I'm going to sound like a jerk here, so *flamesuit activate*:

Put it into perspective.

The Japanese populous will recover in a few years max.

Nuclear power was just BEGINNING to be accepted again, 25 years after the Chernobyl meltdown.

No disrespect meant to the Japanese here, my condolences go out to all affected.

We have 58 plants here in france compared to their 55 and we have less than half their populations, granted we don't have their earthquakes problem.

People are naturally selfish. The majority of us who frequent this forum live in the US and Canada and of course we'd be worried about our own safety. That's human nature.

Oh and comparing possible nuclear fallout to an event that happened 65 years ago during a time of war is moronic.
