The molten core of several Fukushima Daiichi reactors is sinking through the Earth’s crust and appears to be in the early stages of a “China Syndrome,” according to Uehara Haruo, architect of Fukushima Daiichi’s Reactor No. 3 and former president of Saga University, in an interview on 11/17,2011.
He stated that considering 8 months have passed since 3/11 without any improvement, so it is inevitable that melted fuel went out of the container vessel and sank underground, which is called the “China syndrome”.
Haruo added “If fuel has reached an underground water vein, it will cause contamination of underground water, soil, and sea, he said. “Moreover, if the underground water vein keeps being heated for long time, a massive hydrovolcanic explosion will be caused.”
He also warned radioactive debris is spreading in the Pacific Ocean. Tons of the debris has reached the Marshall Islands as of 11/15/2011.
