It says it was only a partial meltdown. I don't think an explosion was ever a concern, but now that you mention it...


"The average radiation dose to people living within ten miles of the plant was eight millirem, and no more than 100 millirem to any single individual. Eight millirem is about equal to a chest X-ray, and 100 millirem is about a third of the average background level of radiation received by US residents in a year."


Again.. lucky!!

I don't like being x-rayed!!

You of all people shouldn't believe in luck. It happened the way it did, cause it was a fail-safe. ANY meltdown I guess you can say it was close. But in reality it was far from being a "uber" disaster like Chernobyl

I'm sayin' it didn't contain itself. It was 'brought under control'. People making it happen. Lucky us! (or those around it) and people around the place were x-rayed. That's not containment. But you are correct, a disaster was narrowly averted.


On a slightly different note, that article also says that they haven't used the tower that suffered a meltdown since the accident. Why?

They can't be repaired/rebuilt?

Different levels of radiation?


, the dentist techs puts a HUGE, HEAVY lead vest thingy over your body and then hides behind a wall just to take a small x-ray of your teeth.

No, if there is ever a serious accident the cost to repair would almost certainly not be worth it.


8-100mrem is nothing. As was noted you get exposed to way more just living your life naturally. Especially you Arturo, you are a post and whoring up all the dose from your monitor.

BTW, if you have smoke detector in your house it is also putting off radiation along with many other things, so you are being x-rayed in your own house.

they put them on you because other people who do not understand it are scared of it, I am sure the vest was not the dentist idea. They get behind a wall becasuse of occupational exposure. They have limits as to how much radiation they can recieve so they have to take precautions or else their dose would rack up.

Well that sucks. I bet the cleanup would be too expensive as well. So we'd be stuck with a big pile of toxic mess. D'oh!

It's 4 months worth in one day. That's a bit much.. again from a supposedly contained, partial meltdown.
