(Literally) Covering Up Reactor 1 Has Started at #Fukushima I Nuke Plant

The work to cover up the reactor building of Reactor 1 at Fukushima I Nuke Plant has started. Take a peek at TEPCO's live cam. A huge crane next to Reactor 1.

The work seems to be over for the day. They stop working at 2PM at the plant due to heat.

The insider rumor says TEPCO/the government really don't want those pesky satellites to look down on their broken reactors. They don't want to see them on Google Earth..

in reference to elena's post the photo seems to be organic..I hope it is not what it appears to look like and that is a human form. I would assume that the photos are so sanitized like the rest of the Tepco releases that the chances of a PR slip up like that are very slim...
I hope.

thank you very much for your blog ex skf.
It is really helpful for me and family. Though we left japan last month, I still need to know about fukushima.

Regarding the tent over reactor 1, recently it was noticed that radionuclides accumulates on the site, also via water condensation deposit.
The tent will have the effect to increase the amount of radionuclides that accumulate directly at the site. This will cause an increase in the number and amounts of radiation extremely high hot spots at the site, making work gradualy more difficult over time as radiation increase. At the same time, if TEPCO can remove some extreme hot spots, it could counter this accumulation. But I am not sure they have the technology to do this.
