Fukushima cleaning robot pulled from reactor due to ultra-high radiation levels

일본 후쿠시마 원전 격납용기서 사고후 또 최고방사선량 추정치
A cleaning robot sent into Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant had to be pulled from its mission due to technical glitches most likely caused by ultra-high radiation levels.
Based on analysis of the images from the robot-mounted cameras, the radiation reading inside the No. 2 reaction at the No. 1 nuclear plant was six-hundred-50 sieverts an hour.
During a similar probe late last month, Tokyo Electric Power Company estimated the radiation in the primary containment vessel to be five-hundred-30 sieverts an hour.
The robot entered the reactor on Thursday for the first time since the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami …to inspect and clean a passage before further examinations.
Despite the off-the-chart figures, which can kill a person almost instantly, TEPCO officials insist radiation is not leaking outside of the utility.
