    this is a good sign
    they wouldn't be showing it if they thought it would end in failure

    tomorrow ES up 50 points...
     
  3. that doesn't look like much relatively speaking, it looks like that would evaporate in seconds, idk.

    A chain reaction of atoms splitting and smashing into each other causing more atoms to split and on and on and on seems to me like wont care much about some hydrogen and oxygen being thrown on it from a helicopter. Just saying.
     
  4. Hope doesn't guarantee success, you know that. I hope it works, I consider the worst case scenario however.

    I don't think they're going to stop dropping water for weeks and weeks

    should be fine now folks

    I'm in awe of the bravery of these pilots
    whether it succeeds or not they are true heros

    they're also going to use high pressure water canon trucks from ground level...will start soon hopefully

    I agree.
     
  8. At least the Demron suits offer some protection.

    0121: The helicopters are gone now, in order to minimise the crews' exposure to radiation - NHK.

    I think there are 11 trucks at ground level each carrying 4 tons of water

    reactors 3 and 4 are the priority it seems

    choppers are on 40 min shifts so I think the helicopter action will resume around 10:38 Tokyo time
    Edit: helicopters dropping 7.5 tonnes each time I think
