#Fukushima I Nuke Plant Reactor 3: "Warrior" Robot Is Now a Photographer

"Warrior" the vacuuming robot is now a photographer, using a gamma camera to take photos of the location where TEPCO wants to fit the pipe for the nitrogen injection system (in the dotted circle in the diagram below) for the Containment Vessel in the reactor building for the Reactor 3.

The bot, accompanied by a Packbot who will monitor and record "Warrior", will enter the high-radiation reactor building on July 6.

TEPCO's press handout on July 6:

No information yet from TEPCO as to WHY the area is so radioactive.

Tks very much. Could you explain us where the information comes from. This is not on english news from Tepco.

It's from TEPCO's press handout on July 6. I added the link in the article. Available for now only in Japanese. The English version of the press handout is usually a bit late, and sometimes not all Japanese handouts get translated into English. But they are trying harder these days.

Funny because there are no foreign reporters who attend TEPCO's presser.
