Informed Comment on Japan Nuclear Crisis

Act of Desperation
For the best commentary I've found on the situation at Fukushima go to: The Oil Drum. Excellent informed detail on what is most likely to be happening with the fuel rods, the problems which may be caused by pumping seawater into stainless steel components and likely outcomes for the whole situation. Throwing water from helicopters looks pretty desperate, the pilots have less than a minute over the site before picking up an overdose of radiation.
