A Japanese military helicopter flew toward a radiation-leaking nuclear plant Wednesday afternoon, a bucket of seawater dangling beneath it, the latest desperate attempt to cool overheated materials that are emitting potentially lethal radioactive steam.

But the operation was deemed too dangerous and aborted, because of high radiation levels in the air above the Fukushima Daiichi plant. Officials were left to find another way to address the explosions and leaks at the stricken facility, which have stoked fear and panic across the nation.

 Television cameras first spotted plumes of white steam emitting from unit 3 Wednesday morning, hours after an explosion at unit 2 seems to have breached the main protective shield around the reactor’s uranium-filled core.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said officials were trying to determine the source of the steam coming from unit 3, and presumed it to be radioactive.

 As radiation levels rose, the lone 50 workers charged with cooling efforts were temporarily relocated. Hundreds of other workers had been evacuated Tuesday because conditions were deemed so dangerous.

Within an hour, though, the radiation levels dropped again, and the small group was permitted to return. In order for them to resume trying to cool the damaged sectors, Japan’s Health and Welfare minister had to waive the nation’s standard of radiation exposure, increasing the level of acceptable exposure from 100 millisieverts to 250 — five times the level allowed in the United States.

Wednesday afternoon, the military dispatched two helicopters from Kasuminome Air Base in Sendai. A lead chopper flew to the plant, less than 150 miles north of Tokyo, to determine whether radiation levels were low enough to continue with the operation.

The second helicopter, a Boeing CH-47 was scheduled to make several passes to drop seawater onto unit 3, where an explosion on Monday resulted in structural damage that appears to have compromised the reactor. But the crew on the lead chopper found radiation levels were too high to carry out the risky mission.

 The rising steam from the breached sector was just the latest problem for the embattled plant, which suffered heavy damage to its cooling systems after Friday’s devastating earthquake and tsunami. Since, the Japanese government and Tokyo Electric Power Co, which owns the facility, have struggled mightily to keep the plant’s six reactors cool. Each day has brought new problems.

Tuesday’s blast at unit 2 was not outwardly visible, but was potentially more dangerous than some of the earlier explosions, because it may have created an escape route for radioactive material bottled up inside the thick steel-and-concrete reactor tube.

So where are the DRONES?

Where are the motherf**king drones?

Where are the robots that by all logic should have been built to do this containment job?

Be careful what you wish for...

I think that may be their plan-- they are hoping people will be screaming for drones to be used, and in a world not filled with evil, the technology would be wonderful, sadly we know this technology is mainly done for evil.  We don't want to acclimate the people to drones being good.

The robot technology was already in Japan, some of the most humanoid (which is very eerie to me), to boot!  Why they are/were not used is a mystery to me.

Japan hikes maximum radiation dose for nuclear plant workers to fight crisis

The Associated Press

TOKYO - Japan has raised the maximum radiation dose allowed for nuclear workers, citing the urgent need to prevent a crisis at a tsunami-stricken power plant from worsening.

Despite the increase, surging radiation levels forced emergency workers to temporarily withdraw from the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant on Wednesday, losing time in their struggle to cool overheating fuel in reactors crippled by last week's devastating earthquake and tsunami.

The Ministry of Health Labor and Welfare raised the maximum allowable exposure for nuclear workers to 250 millisieverts from 100 millisieverts. It described the move as "unavoidable due to the circumstances."

=====================

SO all of a sudden - the dosage can be changed to more than double? Proof that "dosage" information is political bs, and has nothing to do with health.
And  the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, 
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,  ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 25:40

Quantitative easing for Nuclear Power Plants! Why didn't we think of that? What's wrong with you people?

I agree where are the Robots doing the radiation metering, video and cleanup???

This IS Chernobyl II

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chernobyl_disaster ...
The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukrainian SSR (now Ukraine). It is considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in history, and it is the only one classified as a level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale.
...
The resulting fire sent a plume of radioactive fallout into the atmosphere and over an extensive geographical area, including Pripyat. The plume drifted over large parts of the western Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, and Northern Europe. Large areas in Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia were evacuated, and over 336,000 people were resettled. According to official post-Soviet data,[1][2] about 60% of the fallout landed in Belarus.
...
While the general population often perceives plutonium as a particularly dangerous nuclear fuel, its effects are almost eclipsed by those of its fission products. Particularly dangerous are highly radioactive compounds that accumulate in the food chain, such as some isotopes of iodine and strontium.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

I guess they'll have to relocate Japan eh? And still we wait for a chain reaction ...

Why can't they just use a fleet of large scale remote controlled hexacopters to just drop a few tons of concrete on the reactor ??

Leave it to politicians to make a situation more complicated than it needs to be.    ::)

Where have you been?

This is only half the regular daily adult EPA dose/requirement of worker poisoning (500) allowed and endorsed worldwide by the Globalist ZioNAZIs in the rest of the civilized corporatist world. (lower if they pay for InsurerCare™) They just let up a little to allow some of their SDF and local heros a chance to get close to the GE mess two or three days ago.

And, presumably, to earn some TEPCO execs an excuse to claim a much higher than before bonus check next year for arranging better ways to "motivate the workers"  LOL...

It hasn't really helped since no levels are much below 400 anywhere thereabouts to fake measurements so they can slip the guys in...

The fully decked out lead-lined-suited fire hose cops had to split after just 15 minutes of just getting nearly within water cannon range of number 4 - it's too hot everywhere.
