When will the area around the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant be repopulated?
How much land is off limits in terms of Square Miles or Kilometers?
Are the radiation risks serious or negligible within this area if one lives there permanently?
Do the benefits of nuclear power offset the economic loss of this land possibly being rendered useless?

I logged in and read the following ad:
IMHO he deserves it. May I suggest him as a Mentor candidate?
(Thank you tsutsuji for your great contributions)

Has there been any analysis of the seawater contamination incident at the Chubu Electric Hamaoka #5 reactor?
According to this article posted Aug 4, 2012 at Atomic Power Review:
there was a pipe failure in the main condenser during shutdown, so that a lot of secondary cooling circuit sea water contaminated the reactor.
In the current environment, that unit is probably a writeoff, but there are surely some real lessons to be learned if a deliberate shutdown can cause such a damaging failure to occur.

http://www3.nhk.or.jp/news/genpatsu-...806/index.html Tepco has released part of the accident's teleconference videos. Journalists can go to Tepco's main office and watch there 150 hours of the videos taken for 5 days starting on 11 March 2011. They are not allowed to record the videos or the sound. An about one and a half hour edited abridged version prepared by tepco is available for the public to watch.

http://www3.nhk.or.jp/news/genpatsu-...807/index.html It was found by viewing the teleconference videos that on 12 March 2011 after the unit 1 explosion, late in the night an official said "disband !" and almost all high rank officials left the main office response center that was supposed to support Fukushima Daiichi during the accident. Tepco explained that although high rank officials had left, "technicians were remaining and were responding".

See here for images!
This is very interesting.
Let's remember how RPVsapparently fail.
Look at this (the sources are reputable, I hope) which I found here.
Let's say it in a very prosaic manner: they seem to p!ss, instead of sh!tting.
I mean, look at Swedish experiment still photo. Hottest and softest area first gets penetrated. It flows, it doesn't drop.
What if corium sploshing out of vessel warmed up pipe, making a (near) perfect weld in combination with containment overpressure?
(NUCENG, any idea?)
(BTW, tsutsuji, thank you again very much for translating this mega-interesting piece of information!)
