This shows reactor 4, the roof blown off not because of the tsunami,
but because of an inherent flaw in the design of these GE mark 1
reactors (see post on this). Hydrogen gas collects and with no safety
escape, it causes a massive explosion, resulting in the situation above;
a fuel pool with no containment, but directly open to the environment,
100 feet in the air, the crane fallen into the pool, the building about
to collapse, walls buckling, support columns sheared,
unapproachable, unresolved, & unreal. The US has 23 of these, and
some are MUCH larger than Fukushima no. 4.
