Video of Gamma Rays Inside Fukishima

by Christopher Paul on January 24, 2012

From Boing Boing:

Japan is still dealing with the meltdown at Fukishima and sent a probe into to see what’s going on:

“This month, the good folks at TEPCO sent a remote-controlled endoscope and thermometer into the containment vessel of Fukishima’s crippled reactor #2, hoping to learn something about the level of cooling water, the state of the fuel rods, and the temperature in the reactor. The view is obscured by steam, the effects of radiation, and (are you sitting down) actual goddam gamma rays just whizzing by.”

For today’s science lesson, read up on gamma rays and be reminded they are bad for you.
