    Fukushima nuclear reactor radiation at highest level since 2011 meltdown

    Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco), said atmospheric readings as high as 530 sieverts an hour had been recorded inside the containment vessel of reactor No 2, one of three reactors that experienced a meltdown when the plant was crippled by a huge tsunami that struck the north-east coast of Japan in March 2011.

    A single dose of one sievert is enough to cause radiation sickness and nausea; 5 sieverts would kill half those exposed to it within a month, and a single dose of 10 sieverts would prove fatal within weeks.

    So how would they get the melted material out of there, and what would they do with it? How would they insulate and store it?
    I'd rather die tomorrow as a free man than live a hundred years bound in the chains of tyranny.

    For those who have stood on the wall and fought in defense of others, freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.

    I wish there was an easy answer, but I don't know that there is - anything hot enough to melt concrete is going to be very difficult to retrieve and store.

    Brian Johnson was a great effects artist. Did some awesome work...

    Johnson's work on Space: 1999 influenced the effects of the Star Wars films of the 1970s and 1980s. Impressed by his work, George Lucas visited Johnson during the production of the TV series to offer him the role of effects supervisor for the 1977 film. Having already been commissioned for the second series of Space: 1999, Johnson was unable to accept at the time. He did, however, work on the sequel: The Empire Strikes Back (1980), whose special effects were recognised in the form of a 1981 Special Achievement Academy Award (which Johnson shared with Richard Edlund, Dennis Muren and Bruce Nicholson).
