Fukushima – German physicist: “The probability that the rescue succeeds goes to zero”

The German physicist Sebastian Pfugbeil is extremely pessimistic that an elementary Fukushima disaster can be averted. The consequences would be felt the entire northern hemisphere. Pflugbeil: “Humanity could be damaged during failure of attempts to recover the used fuel elements of the Fukushima nuclear power plant in an unprecedented way by blasting.”

The German physicist Sebastian Pflugbeil considers the situation in Fukushima for extremely critical. Pflugbeil told the German business news: “Humanity could to recover from failure of attempts to make the used fuel elements of the Fukushima nuclear power plant are damaged in an unprecedented way by blasting.” Although Pflugbeil does not believe that the human race by another disaster in Fukushima is extinguished: “Humanity is very sturdy!” But he is very pessimistic about the possibilities that the situation can not be brought under control.

Pflugbeil the situation in Fukushima: 

“The situation is becoming increasingly critical due to the decay of the ruins. The fuel rods are not safe. The reactor blocks from bag. Thousands of tons of contaminated water to be discharged into the sea, the ground on which rests the reactor is no longer loads -., He swims. It has all been moved so that there is about one meter height difference from one corner to another. The resulting induced voltages have resulted in alarming cracks in the building construction.”

Pflugbeil to the dangers: 

“If the fuel rods are not cooled, it will be a disaster. Then huge amounts of radioactivity are released. As a crack extends into the pelvis and the cooling water is running out. The fuel rods would ignite. The fuel rod cladding are made of zirconium. If it burns, you can not get it under control. The shells break on then. Then flows to a large extent from radioactivity – gaseous, volatile, medium volatile. Also, the fuel in the other blocks of the nuclear power plant are then destroyed in the foreseeable future, because the employee must leave the area due to the extreme radiation exposure immediately. It requires only a small earthquake or a storm surge or simply the failure of building structures to set this disaster in motion.”

The rescue plan of the Japanese: 

“The Japanese will first extract the 1,300 fuel rods in Unit 4 individually. Even if only one is broken, the workers have to go. This is an extremely complicated and lengthy process. How difficult is you have seen on a test that have made a still unused fuel the Japanese. Dens have steered her hand while pulling out. Hand! The active fuel rods can not handle with one hand, that would be fatal. The probability that the rescue is successful, zero.”
