What the Fuku is going on over there?
As predicted here, and in case it's not on the news it happened yesterday, Friday, that a machine weighing half a ton fell into the nuclear fuel pool containing, as I understand it, nearly 600 spent fuel rods awaiting removal along with an unspecified number of unspent fuel rods at Fukushima Daiichi unit 3.
Have the pool and/or it's contents been compromised?
Can the remaining nuclear rods be removed safely?
What is the worst case scenario?
