via NHK World / August 20, 2014 / Workers have begun the difficult task of decommissioning the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. One of the biggest hurdles they’re facing is how to remove melted fuel from the crippled reactors.
First they need to know the condition of the fuel. Experts believe it has cooled down and turned into debris. But engineers with Tokyo Electric Power Company have not been able to check the actual state of the debris due to high levels of radiation.
Now, they might have figured out a way to measure the highly toxic materials.
