YOU have NO IDEA where Fukishima's Coriums is located. So stop with your "China Syndrome " nonsense.
Corium is not the "devil" or dark matter or a singularity thats going to swallow up our Universe.
It is a mix of core material and reactor sttucture and it COOLS as it dilutes as it makes it way down to the core containment.
You post made up scenarios and offer it up as "truth" and waste my time.
Chernobyl's Corium made it through the containment vessel and stopped in a basement.
Look back in this thread about 4 pages and find my pictures of the Russian Tecnician standing next to the DILUTED "elephants foot".
Chernobyl's core NEVER even made it out of the upper basement and the tunnel they built was never needed.
Educate yourself and stop making **** up.
Here's the skinny on the Chernobyl elephant's foot.
It burned itself down into 6 feet of concrete and this is exposed.
The individual and the photographer of which you refer are likely a long time dead.
"Lava, glass and crystal flow discovered in the base of the reactor In December 1986, an intensely radioactive mass was discovered in the basement of Unit Four and scientists rigged up a crude wheeled camera to investigate. The mass was more than two metres across and weighed hundreds of tons. Because of its odd wrinkled shape, it was christened, “the elephant’s foot”. To approach it meant certain death. Analysis of the material showed that it was composed of sand, glass and nuclear fuel, and the proportion of sand suggested to scientists that a large amount of fuel had escaped from the reactor in this form. Underneath the reactor, the investigation team found steaming hot concrete and, draining into the basement, lava and spectacular unknown crystalline forms - Chernobylite."

There it is, and there's a technician standing next to it taking readings. OOOooohhh, I'm waiting for it to suck him in and spit him out, or morph into "Pizuzu", or Satan himself.
No, it burned through the containment vessel, was diluted by design and then it cooled.

One of you will end up here next!
Well, you were saying that Fukushima was not an issue, nobody would be harmed... yet on the us side, where the radiation would be less of an issue, there's been a surge in thyroid issues in newborns.
I knew exactly the ways you would try to lie and minimize that fact, you are too predictable.
I knew you only read that further study was needed, and ignore the rest. You know that correlation is not causation, and the causative stydy would need to be done differently, but its really as predicted. Not by you, but by people that know what they're talking about, that the fallout would cause health problems in the us. Now this study comes out and you play these stupid games rather than concede the possibility that the risks are greater than you were saying.
