Cleaner robot pulled from Fukushima reactor due to radiation

TOKYO – A remote-controlled “cleaning” robot that entered one of three destroyed Fukushima reactor regulation chambers was pulled back before finishing its main goal due to glitches in all likelihood brought on by high radiation.

Tuesday’s central goal was the first run through a robot entered the chamber since the March 2011 tidal wave fundamentally harmed the atomic plant.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said the purpose was to investigate and clean a section before another robot does a more full examination not long from now.

The robot went just halfway into a space under the center that TEPCO needs to assess nearly. The result implies the second robot will experience more hindrances and have less time for examination.

Pictures as of late caught from inside the chamber demonstrated harm and structures covered with liquid material, potentially blended with softened atomic fuel.
