Fukushima I Nuke Plant Reactor 2: Temp Near the Bottom of Reactor Pressure Vessel Went -197.1 Degrees Celsius

Just for the record, the thermometer at the CRD Housing Upper Part of the Reactor Pressure Vessel of Reactor 2 is completely kaput (or DS, down scale), and the last measurement on January 19 was -197.1 degrees Celsius, or -322.78 degrees Fahrenheit.

An extreme cold shutdown at that particular location, for sure.

If you haven't seen the video of inside the Reactor 2 Containment Vessel that houses this extremely cold RPV, the digest version is here, and the full version is here.

From TEPCO's latest plant parameters (1/21/2012):

We know for a fact that tens of tons of uranium was launched and aerosolized, mostly from reactor 3 explosion. And we know that reactor 3 used MOX fuel which is uranium mixed with plutonium. And we know that all used fuel contains plutonium.

We know that at LEAST hundreds of pounds of plutonium were launched and aerosolized from Fukushima (Island of Dreams).

The proof is laid out quite clearly here.

We know nothing of the sort because it is an event that exists only in your mind. You have made wild speculations and posted them on your website as proof, and have been trying to draw attention to yourself for weeks. The event is serious enough, with real world consequences for people, particularly people in Fukushima, without people trying to convince others that "tons of plutonium have aerosolized".

The thermocouples used there are hermetically sealed bimetals that generate a voltage which you can measure to find out the temperature.

Such low "measurements" only indicate that they got shorted. Most probably by the hermetic sealing becoming leaky, allowing dampness/water in and short out the bimetals.

This in turn is probably due to the stressing far outside the specifications, as happened when the temperatures were outrageously high due to the glowingly hot metals nearby.
