Holding a midnight press conference, TEPCO is cautiously optimistic efforts with helicopter drops and water cannons had some success cooling the spent fuel rod pool at the #3 Fukushima reactor. "We were able to see some steam," says an official, "it’s fair to say that the spraying was somewhat effective."

    why not send in the snow machines? Blow snow inside the reactors. Way quicker than just water alone. Something is telling me TEPCO is not knowing what to do at all. Yeah, any steam are now radioactive.

    Because, as a trader/economist/health care specialist, you have a great deal of knowledge about engineering heat transfer right? ;) I'm sure there are people smarter than us doing all they can.

    just a suggestion! This thing is not just for Japan. We are all included. My comment is not meant to be funny or cute! Guys. This is serious stuff. These units have to be cool down. They are already slow to react to this situation. US and Germany have issued evacuate orders.
    There are lots of smart people around but was not able to get thru Japan.

    I know it's a serious situation, my comment was not meant to be funny at all.

    If you would like to drive the snow blower in, I'm sure TEPCO would pay for your air ticket... and funeral.
