Decommissioning Fukushima: The Ongoing Battle Against Radiation

At the accident site at Fukushima nuclear power station, the decommissioning of reactors involving the removal of nuclear fuel from three nuclear reactors seems unending. Some estimates say it will take over 40 years until all the work is complete. Nuclear debris still continues to release fatal amounts of radiation for humans, making close investigation impossible. Therefore, alternative inspection methods using cutting-edge technology are ongoing, including small remote operation robots and a cosmic-ray muon technology to imaging debris inside the reactor. Can humans intimately control nuclear power? Decommissioning Fukushima is a record of the front line of the accident that attempt to answer this question.
