#Fukushima I Nuke Plant: Video of Packbot Approaching 5+ Sievert/Hr Location inside Reactor 1

Someone posted the video (zip file from TEPCO that I linked yesterday) on Youtube. Thank you.

The Packbot crawls toward the "train room" (for emergency gas treatment system), as 9 carbon-based colleagues watch from behind.

(Wonder why they call it "train room".)

its safer for humans to go in. the robots always commit suicide, humans will keep going until they die.

Robbie001 sez:

In gas treatment nomenclature gas is treated in a system known as a "train" each "car" represents a different treatment technology which in combination effect the desired level of treatment here is an example.

Common Treatment Train for Nonhalogenated VOCs:

The detected contamination in the train area may be related to the blow down that contaminated the stack area.

Given the radiation fuzz in the camera during the last seconds of the video it might be a lot more than 5 sv.

Floor looked to be discolored, water maybe on floor, at the end of video?
