While there’s no doubt that the nuclear crisis in Fukushima back in 2011 could have been avoided, a recent discovery suggests that this week’s extended blackout was entirely out of their of hands. Instead, the loss of power lies in the diabolical paws of a now deceased, foresight-lacking rat.
A nuclear power plant in Southern California is being swarmed by legions of jellyfish-like creatures. CAN THEY BE STOPPED?
Ever since Fukushima, nuclear power has not been a warmly received concept when it comes to energy solutions. But still, small modular reactors have remained one iteration of nuclear power that people are optimistic about due to their relative safety and manageability. That’s why the US Department of Energy has entered into partnerships with the top SMR makers to help nurture the tiny wonders.
Just when you thought it was over, the temperature at reactor number 2 at Fukushima’s nuclear plant has soared 26.7C in the last few hours. Worse: they don’t know why the temperature is increasing after being stabilised for so long.
On a quest to prove that security measures surrounding nuclear facilities are ill-considered, nine Greenpeace activists broke into a French nuclear power plant and hung a banner that said “HEY” and “EASY” on it. Even after Greenpeace told police about the stunt, it took them several hours to track them down.
The French are great at lots of things: bread, cheese, wine, shrugging. Sadly, their nuclear power stations aren’t so amazing. They’re unsafe and need a massive overhaul.
Japan is hoping to have the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant safely shuttered by the end of the year, but a little radioactive wrench just got dropped: inspectors have discovered evidence of very recent fission. That’s bad news.
Fishermen in Córdoba, Argentina caught a three-eyed wolf fish in a reservoir fed by a local nuclear power plant, which will surely hinder the plant’s owner’s attempt to run for local office.
