Japan Nuclear Expert: Simply impossible to remove melted fuel from Fukushima — Corium “has spread all over… could actually have gone through floor of containment vessel” — Only way to deal with these reactors releasing dangerous radiation is to cover in concrete — Will take centuries of work (VIDEO)

Prof. Hiroaki Koide, Kyoto University Research Reactor Institute (retired), Apr 24, 2015, starting at 31:00 in (emphasis added):

Although what I’ve been describing is quite grave, we have an even more serious issue facing us, which is the reactor cores melted in Units 1-3. What are we going to do about that?… Tepco believes that there are lumps of melted fuel and they have this idea that they are somehow going to… pluck out all of these lumps… They’re saying that the first step they will take is to somehow plug the holes in the containment vessel… I believe this plan that has been presented is simply impossible to realize… We don’t even have the technology or ability now even to determine where the holes are, and even if we were able to determine where the holes are, how can we possibly repair them? We do not have the means to do so… I think the fundamental assumption of Tepco and the government that the melted fuel is sitting at the bottom in a nice little lump like a dumpling shape, I think that is impossible. It’s an impossible proposition.
