IAEA Director General makes a Wake up call on Iranian Nuke Threat

Published on Nov 22, 2011 by Euronews

A frightening confirmation came recently that Iran has been working on a nuclear weapon, according to a report published by the International Atomic Energy Agency — the UN watchdog — on November 8.

It was the most detailed report so far about any military dimension of Iran’s nuclear programme. The IAEA a few days after publication underscored how serious it was.

Yukiya Amano said: “I have this information and assessment; I must alert the world. This is my duty as Director General.”

Bundestag politicians have paused to remember the victims of an alleged neo-nazi killing spree that has sent shockwaves across Germany.

They paid their respects to eight men from Turkey and one from Greece, all murdered in the last decade.

“We are aware of our responsibilities. We have decided to do everything possible within the rules of law to find how what happened and the background to these events,” said Norbert Lammert, President of the German Parliament.

http://www.euronews.net/ Russia could deploy missiles to its EU borders aimed at missile defence facilities in Europe planned by the United States.

Iskander missiles, which have a range of up to 500 kilometres, may be stationed in the Kaliningrad exclave, if Washington goes ahead with a defence system whose sites would be in countries close enough to pose a threat to Russia.

NATO had been trying to broker a deal for Russia’s cooperation with the US plan, but refused Russia’s proposal to run the system jointly

Nuclear Phobia-shuts down Reactors and Uranium mines

Japan's building of Reactors in siesmic zones has bolstered anti-nuclear actvism

Aronite Thinking is that-

Few care to remember that Japan was a Nuclear Techno-Extremist. It defied even common sense overconfidently by building Nuclear Reactors in a Siesmically Hyperactive Japan and along hiostorical Tsunami Pathways.

But Nuclear Phobia had got a boost by its meddle and hoping to eradicate an entire Industry and a non fossil fuel sustainable Energy generation technology.

For countries like Israel and India, this means unlilateral Disarmament of its Nuclear capacity, with disasterous consequences. This down grading of their nuclear capacity would be going to build up the same of its foes who care a hoot for anti-Nuclear activism.

Before asking India to step down its Nuclearisation and strip its capacity, they must convince that comparison with Japan’s ground realities hold true for her. And whether they would be equally be able to persuade her nuclear foes to like wise down grade.

Hamaoka Nuclear Reactors Begin Shutdown in Southern Japan

Japan’s Chubu Electric Power company has started shutting down its nuclear reactors in Hamaoka. It’s at the request of the Japanese government. The plant, which lies on two tectonic plates, is in an area highly likely to be hit by an earthquake in the next 30 years.

Hamaoka nuclear power plant, located 120 miles south of Tokyo, started its temporary shutdown on Friday, after an unprecedented request by Japan’s prime minister.

Prime Minister Naoto Kan said this was due to the plant’s lack of defenses against major earthquakes and tsunamis.

Kan said there is an 87 percent chance of a major earthquake within the next 30 years striking the area where the Hamaoka nuclear reactor is situated.

Swiss adventurer Yves Rossy on Saturday completed a flight over the Grand Canyon, in the US state of Arizona, in his custom-built jet suit – his first such flight in the U.S. Rossy performed the stunt on Saturday with little fanfare, before a small group of team members, and his sponsor, Swiss watchmaker Breitling, announced the successful flight on Tuesday and released footage.

He was airborne for about eight minutes, soaring 60 metres above the canyon rim on the Hualapai Reservation.
A planned Friday flight before reporters was cancelled after Rossy determined it would be too challenging without any practice runs. The US Federal Aviation Administration had given him the green light less than an hour before the scheduled stunt. Rossy’s sponsor. Rossy flew up to 305 kilometres p/h before deploying his parachute and landing on the canyon floor

Close-up underwater footage of Fukushima reactor spent fuel pool in debris

RussiaToday | May 11, 2011 | 3,414 views

TEPCO released footage for the first time on Wednesday of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant Unit 3 reactor’s spent fuel pool. The fuel rods, covered in debris from the March explosions, weren’t visible in the footage but officials believe they are largely undamaged. In an operation filmed by a robot camera, 40 milliliters of water was collected from the spent fuel pool. The water is contaminated with high levels of radioactive material which needs further analysis for evaluation

Japan Radiation spill over to the Sea waters

24th march 23.00hrs
NDTV reports

Radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi plant has been found in vegetables produced in four prefectures surrounding the Fukushima plant, in tap water in areas around the plant, and also in the sea.

Many boats moored at the Takahagi port in Ibaraki Prefecture have sunk. Many others were thrown onto what is now dry land. Mounds of tangled fishing nets and buoys lie scattered everywhere.

It could take months for the port to be ready and boats repaired at Takahagi, and the fishermen hope the nuclear crisis will have been contained by then.

Before the tsunami, Rikuzentakata was home to 24,000 people. After the huge wave wiped out the entire town, 18,000 of its residents are missing.

New York Times reports on the doom of Japan

Japan’s nuclear crisis verged toward catastrophe on Tuesday after an explosion damaged the vessel containing the nuclear core at one reactor and a fire at another spewed large amounts of radioactive material into the air, according to the statements of Japanese government and industry officials.

In a brief address to the nation at 11 a.m. Tokyo time, Prime Minister Naoto Kan pleaded for calm, but warned that radiation had already spread from the crippled reactors and there was “a very high risk” of further leakage. Fortunately, the prevailing winds were sweeping most of the plume of radioactivity out into the Pacific Ocean, rather than over populated areas.

The sudden turn of events, after an explosion Monday at one reactor and then an early-morning explosion Tuesday at yet another — the third in four days at the plant — already made the crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station the worst nuclear accident since the Chernobyl reactor disaster a quarter century ago.

“We are on the brink. We are now facing the worst-case scenario,” said Hiroaki Koide, a senior reactor engineering specialist at the Research Reactor Institute of Kyoto University. “We can assume that the containment vessel at Reactor No. 2 is already breached. If there is heavy melting inside the reactor, large amounts of radiation will most definitely be released.”

Fakushima Reactor Cluster aftermath

Another executive said the chain of events at Daiichi suggested that it would be difficult to maintain emergency seawater cooling operations for an extended period if the containment vessel at one reactor had been compromised because radiation levels could threaten the health of workers nearby.

If all workers do in fact leave the plant, the nuclear fuel in all three reactors is likely to melt down, which would lead to wholesale releases of radioactive material — by far the largest accident of its kind since the Chernobyl.

The scenario of dismal optionsNew York times also continues pointing the no options outlook.

Even if a full meltdown is averted, Japanese officials have been facing unpalatable options. One was to continue flooding the reactors and venting the resulting steam, while hoping that the prevailing winds did not turn south toward Tokyo or west, across northern Japan to the Korean Peninsula. The other was to hope that the worst of the overheating was over, and that with the passage of a few more days the nuclear cores would cool enough to essentially entomb the radioactivity inside the plants, which clearly will never be used again. Both approaches carried huge risks.

While Japanese officials made no comparisons to past accidents, the release of an unknown quantity of radioactive gases and particles — all signs that the reactor cores were damaged from at least partial melting of fuel — added considerable tension to the effort to cool the reactors.

“It’s way past Three Mile Island already,” said Frank von Hippel, a physicist and professor at Princeton. “The biggest risk now is that the core really melts down and you have a steam explosion.”

The sharp deterioration came after a frantic day and night of rescue efforts focused largely on the No. 2 reactor. There, a malfunctioning valve prevented workers from manually venting the containment vessel to release pressure and allow fresh seawater to be injected into it.

That meant that the extraordinary remedy emergency workers had jury-rigged to keep the nuclear fuel from overheating no longer worked.

As a result, the nuclear fuel in that reactor was exposed for many hours, increasing the risk of a breach of the container vessel and more dangerous emissions of radioactive particles.
By Tuesday morning, Tokyo Electric Power said that it had fixed the valve and resumed seawater injections, but that it had detected possible leaks in the containment vessel that prevented water from fully covering the fuel rods.
Then an explosion hit that reactor.

After a series of conflicting reports about what level of damage was inflicted on the reactor after that blast, Mr. Edano said, “there is a very high probability that a portion of the container vessel was damaged.” The steel container vessels that protect nuclear fuel in reactors are considered crucial to maintain the integrity of the reactor and the safety of the fuel.
