This week, Dr. Caldicott has a new conversation with nuclear engineer Arnold Gundersen about the ongoing nuclear disaster at the Fukushima plant and its effects on Japan and the rest of the world. [...]
At ~12:00 in
Arnold Gundersen, Nuclear Engineer: At Reactor 2… the conclusion is that fine pieces of nuclear fuel have escaped the containment and are lying as a powder on the bottom of the torus room.

Gundersen: The particles escaped the torus… that’s what’s fascinating… these are outside containment… it’s quite clear that the junction between the torus and the dry part of the containment failed.
