+ - Fukushima finally reaches cold shutdown

Submitted by
mvdwege
mvdwege writes "The BBC reports that the reactors at Fukushima have reached cold shutdown, meaning that they no longer need active cooling to stay at safe temperatures. Plans can now be made to start the cleanup of the site. Unfortunately, TEPCO has also admitted that not all problems were out in the open until now; an estimated 45 cubic metres of contaminated water have leaked out of cracks in the foundation of a treatment plant."
