and Yomiuri Shinbun has this extremely hopeful diagram that they came up with to celebrate the occasion. It shows part of the melted fuel inside the shroud of the Reactor Pressure Vessel and part of it at the bottom of the RPV, both cooled below 100 degrees Celsius inside the RPV, supposedly.
TEPCO announced on September 28 that the temperature at the bottom of the reactor of Reactor 2 at Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant was 99.4 degrees Celsius as of 5PM on September 28. It was the first time since the March 11 accident that the temperature there dropped below 100 degrees Celsius.
Now one of the two conditions for the stable "cold shutdown", "temperature below 100 degrees Celsius", has been achieved.
The other condition is to suppress the release of radioactive materials. Then the national government will make a declaration that the Fukushima accident is over, residents will return home, and we can all forget about the accident ever happened.
The red dot on the bottom right of the RPV indicates the location where TEPCO has been measuring the temperature.
Never mind that the basement of Reactor 2 is flooded with highly contaminated water. Needless to say, the RPV leaks, and the Containment Vessel (drywell) leaks. And we know that the suppression chamber leaks after it exploded in March 15.
