What the government officials and the TEPCO corporation is doing to their fellow citizens is shameful and in my opinion many times worst in comparison with what was done in Chernobyl!
About 05-10 years from now Japan will have the most cancerous deaths , most still births and deformed babies in the world!
I think the government and TEPCO are doing it, mostly because of their sense of national pride, which tells them that neither of them can fail and must reach their goal at any cost, but at the end of the day they should ask themselves – how many lives should they sacrifice to cover up their failure?

A new Russian space telescope that will work in concert with radio telescopes on the ground launched earlier today, capping an effort that germinated during the Cold War. It will be the biggest telescope ever, with an effective antenna size spanning 30 times the diameter of the Earth.
The RadioAstron telescope has a 10-meter antenna, a tenth of the size of the biggest radio telescopes on Earth, but when combined with ground-based observatories it will be huge — with a resolution up to 10,000 times better than the Hubble Space Telescope.
American manufacturers are enjoying a resurgence. Last month, they expanded at the fastest pace in nearly seven years. More importantly, over 80 percent of companies can’t find the technology help they need, and the shortage will only get worse as baby boomers retire.
According to a survey conducted by KPMG,nearly 41 percent of U.S. manufacturers plan to increase hiring in 2011. That could mean 230,000 new jobs before the end of the year.
We’re not talking about people to man the assembly line or follow orders here. Companies need professionals with technical skills to build and operate automated manufacturing systems. Hot jobs include mechanical and electrical engineers and those who can read and write machine programming code, design mechanical systems and troubleshoot problems. Since the industry is actively recruiting, you may be able to telecommute or relocate to a manufacturing town that features a lower cost of living.
