The problem with sweeping unresolved problems, especially of the unstable gamma decay variety, is that they tend to pop up at the most inopportune of times. Such as during global coordinated fiat ponzi bailouts. Kyodo reports that according to TEPCO a fresh fission reaction has restarted at Fukushima Daichi, and that boric acid is being injected to control a “possible nuclear reaction.” Hardly the encouraging news that the world needs right about now.
TEPCO finds sign of fresh nuclear fission at Fukushima reactor
Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Wednesday there may be signs of fresh nuclear fission in the No. 2 reactor at its quake-damaged Fukushima Daiichi power plant and that it has begun injecting boric acid to control a possible nuclear reaction.
There has been no change in the temperature, pressure and radiation levels at the reactor, whose nuclear fuel is believed to have melted when the cooling system failed following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, the utility known as TEPCO said.
Gas samples taken Tuesday from inside the reactor’s containment vessel may contain radioactive xenon, a gas typically generated by nuclear fission, the company said.
What is the conventional wisdom thinking on Fukushima anyway? Out of sight, out of mind? Yeah, we thought so.
