Japan Nuclear Reactor

By | source: Mar 24th, 2011

If you liked yesterday’s infographic from Tablet Infographics, then you will really like today’s. With an earthquake having hit Japan a little less than two weeks ago, Japan continues their recovery process. Today’s infographic revolves around the Fukushima Daiichi reactor. As you may already know the earthquakes that hit Japan did much more than make the ground shake. They caused tsunamis, fires, and damage to the many nuclear reactors on the island. The problem with damaged nuclear reactors is radiation. On the Ines scale the Fukushima reactor is considered a five, meaning there is risk for off-site contamination. Which has actually already happened. Radiation has reached as far as California, but because it is dispersed enough it is not dangerous to humans. If you have not already I encourage to donate to the red cross. Thanks again to Tablet Infographics for providing today’s infographic.
