Thanks rabid_dingo coming from you, I consider that sound secondhand info.
Still, just to fix an eye sore and not contain the source seems weird.  Rebuild
and repair in the same location seems ludicrous. But then we just had
earthquakes in Oklahoma.... :-\

Japan on the other hand used more clay-rod technology. Less spewed up and about.

Never heard of it. Maybe "clad-rod"? The uranium oxide pellets are ceramic (the same as the RBMK/Chernobyl fuel pellets), but clays are organic.

Not that it's really essential to the point. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't further out of touch with the industry than I thought.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Right at the edge of my ability to comprehend was a bit of good reading on Wiki

More than I ever needed to know about the subject.......

What I meant was fixing the containment that has become the eye sore not fixing a broken plant. Does that
make sense? They want to clean, fix and contain. Not just create a concrete encasement eyesore...

They are Japanese.

A year ago this was happening

Can you imagine experiencing a magnitude 9 earthquake and then watching this happen to your home town?
