Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Back Stable

Injecting nitrogen into the Fukushima nuclear reactor has been carried out on Thursday, so the hydrogen explosion in the reactor can be avoided. As a result, the pressure in the reactor containment vessel increased as expected. It also indicates the success of the operation.

Hidehiko Nishiyama, a spokesman for the nuclear watchdog said that the possibility of another hydrogen explosion is very small due to the high volume of radioactive substances will be emitted following the nitrogen injection operation.

However, the fuel stems in the reactor almost half exposed to radiation after the loss of cooling the water. This creates accumulation of oxygen and hydrogen which is feared to trigger another explosion. Finally TEPCO plans to continue to dispose the water polluted with low levels of radiation into the Pacific Ocean to make storage room. Despite the criticisms, the Japanese government to justify their actions did not violate the international law.
