What exactly is exploding in Japan's Fukushima Nuclear plants?
Posted on 2011-03-14
We've all seen on the news the frightening explosions at the Fukushima nuclear plants, but there hasn't been much information.
The first explosion to me looked like a steam explosion in that there was no fire and you can clearly see the blast wave propagate upwards, and the dust and debris laterally; the second explosion seemed different in that there was fire in it and it appeared to produce a lot of smoke that rose vertically.
What a mess.
