Another great Asian Week exclusive, never seen before 3D effect photos of Fukushima. As as kid I loved to look at 3D pictures, and people have remarked how nice it would be if they had 3D video or pictures. Turns out, if you take the helicopter video flying sideways, you can pick out a stereo pair as long as you are looking in the same direction from a few feet / seconds apart. A word of warning, the way to look at these is to cross your eyes until they merge but even I felt like I had radiation sickness and felt like upchucking after doing this for more than 10 seconds.
There is some dispute as to whether there is a black circular hole for the reactor well, which looks like that in the 2nd roof shot, but it might be an optical illusion of steam against the twin beams of the crane. The third shot is looking through the blasted east well of unit 3 at an empty equipment pool.
Unit 3 Equipment Pool Gate Behind Reactor Well. The equipment pool gate shot clearly shows a flat gate, and the wedding cake wreck pops right up. I call the bent-back roof section the dragon’s tail.

This is cruising by the east (water side) wall, evidently looking into the empty equipment pool
Crowd Sourced Scribble Live Photos
The group that I found Nancy Foust in has a remarkable photo collection that has been completely ignored by TEPCO and the press with some very good theories of what blew up where here: http://www.poudreinternetservice.com/photographs.html
Here is a photo with the theory that since nobody can spot where the bus-sized refueling platform went, it might be the bus-sized thing seen falling from the sky and the bus-sized object that appears to be poking through the giant hole in the roof of the next door turbine building. The other clue is that the size of the hole is about the size of the spent fuel pool, and the “bus” is sized to straddle the fuel pool, so it should make about the same sized hole. Again, no hydrogen gas explosion is going to send a object of that size into the air, and nothing that big is going to leave fuel rods just under the water intact either.
This shows that the size of the object in the hole in the roof IS about the size of a bus or a big truck:
This drawing points to large yellow “shrapnel” bits. The only big yellow thing anybody has seen is the reactor cap which is SUPPOSED to be safely on top of the reactor. But if there’s a big hole where the concrete manhole plug is supposed to be, and it blew up into little bits, then that would explain these yellow things. Of course, you can assume that nobody at TEPCO has even noticed, let alone examined any of this debris. As far we know, they’re just shoveling all the debris into little blue boxes as if it was sweeping up dust bunnies into a dustpan instead of treating it like a crime scene and figuring out what the hell happened and how. They’re official story is still that “the roof was damaged” rather than “building was blown to hell, state of reactor well and fuel pool unknown but we’re sure it’s probably fine”.
This 3d shot shows the big olive crane beam going from left to right and the “shuttle” part between the two beams sitting on top, with the read “head” at upper middle, with the dragon’s tail in front.
Coast to Coast: Two or Three explosions
I don’t know if I was first, but another fellow heard the sound track and concluded that there must have been at least two explosions, a hydrogen blast, then a prompt critical, and then a steam blast. Chernobyl had two blasts, it went up 1000 m into the sky
Two explosions may have occurred early on at Reactor No. 3, very similar to Chernobyl — Likely at least several hundred pounds of plutonium ejected (VIDEO)

Linda Moulton Howe interviews Scott Portzline, security consultant to Three Mile Island Alert, Coast to Coast AM, May 26, 2011:
28:00: At least several hundred pounds of plutonium ejected from No. 3
3020: May have been 2 explosions at No. 3, very similar to Chernobyl, one a prompt criticality, the other a steam explosion
He believes increasing temperatures and effort to spike the cooling water with boron means the reactor is still fissioning, and that there needs to be a level 8 accident which is consistent with 3 reactors with cores still melting down, 4 spent fuel pools with problems, and a need for an immediate international response with special equipment rather than relying on a soon-bankrupt local power company to handle it. This will be going on for at least another year, or years. US networks are simply not covering the crisis perhaps through US pressure from the Obama administration (which happens to be buddies with “our reactor performed beyond expectations great” General Electric) to promote nuclear power.
Here is the “connecting dots” blog with a pretty good report from Canada. What the world needs is somebody paid full time to produce a daily news report of what in tarnation is going on at Fukushima, all we have a dozens of little blogs and bloggers digging this stuff up. He’s pretty much to the point and objective even though he does post a 9-11 conspiracy video or two on his channel.
