#fukushima Fries Clean-Up Robot

Radiation levels, on TEPCO's robot,
. . . inside the containment vessel, of reactor No. 2, at Fukushima, reached
. . . 530 sieverts per hour,
. . . a level high enough,
. . . to kill a human within seconds.

It now appears, that this initial estimate may have been too low.
. . . Or TEPCO's robot is getting closer to the melted fuel, which is very likely.
. . . High radiation readings near any of the used fuel,
. . . are to be expected.

Now, that same remotely operated robot,
. . . had to be pulled when its camera began to fail, after just
. . . 2 hours of exposure to the radiation inside the damaged reactor.
Accordingly, TEPCO has revised its estimate to about
. . . 650 sieverts per hour!
