The robot is also off the chain! Fukushima nuclear power plant "scorpion" robot strike

Technology Beijing, February 16 - the robot also fell off the chain! Tokyo Electric, Japan in 2015, the consumption of aluminum in the global automobile manufacturing industry was about 19500kt (including recycled aluminum). Li company announced on the 16th that its scorpion detection robot sent to the Fukushima reactor was in trouble and its mission was forced to be suspended

on February 11, 2011, a huge tsunami occurred on the northeast coast of Japan, killing or missing more than 18000 people, and causing three reactor meltdowns at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, becoming the most serious nuclear leakage accident since the Chernobyl accident in 1986

TEPCO, which operates the Fukushima nuclear power plant, recently sent the remotely controlled scorpion robot to reactor 2. The radiation level here exploded last week, hitting the fastest, safe and reliable 650 sieverts per hour (SV, radiation measurement unit) in history

according to the latest report of the daily mail, the scorpion robot is made by Toshiba, Japan. It is about 60 cm long and is equipped with two sets of cameras and sensors to measure the radiation level and temperature. According to the previous briefing, the scorpion robot, which can withstand the total radiation of 1000 sieverts, is on a mission to capture on-site images and collect radiation and temperature data in the containment. Its challenges include two high levels of radiation and moving on rough surfaces

but now, a TEPCO spokesman said, we learned from robots that it is impossible to reach the target site under the pressure vessel melted by nuclear fuel. It is not sure whether it is radiation or obstacles that cause it to stagnate. The company is confirming the data it has obtained, such as what images it has taken

according to the official of spectrum magazine of the American Institute of electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), will Davis, a former U.S. naval reactor operator and adviser to the American Nuclear Energy Association, pointed out that it will take a long time, possibly many years, to pass relevant methods and plans only before the real start of removing damaged nuclear fuel from reactors and containment

the Japanese government said in December last year that in the process of high radiation level operation in the next few decades, the total cost of compensation and purification is expected to be as high as $189billion with the research and utilization of vehicle lightweight
