    Radiation decreases to the square of the distance, or twice the distance, gives one quarter the dose. Here is some perspective.

    NRC allows 5000 mrem for occupational workers per year.

    At 10,000 mrem over a short period you have 1 in 30 chance of cancer.
    At 50,000 to 100,000 Radiation sickness is possible.
    200,00 to 450,000 Hair loss and some blood changes, some deaths within 2 to 6 weeks.
    Over 450,000 half die within 30 days.
    Those doses are over short periods of time, like hours to days.

    No, I am not an expert, but I am a Radiation Safety Officer. This is from NRC's website.

    Yes it does.

    At this point, one can only be optimistic that between the Japanesse and Americans, we can secure these nuclear reactors.

    I am (was) a certified Level 1 Thermographer thru the Infraspection Institute in VM and have done infrared scans of 11 Nukes.
    Scarey places.

    OPPD, NPPD, Union Electric and a few other companies.
    Algoma, Kewaunee, Calloway (scariest of all) and several in NE & KS and one in Spain.

    But I know little about them other than Westinghouse and GE made the ones I was in.

    They looked like HS science projects to me.

    New Blast Reported at Japanese Nuclear Plant as Workers Struggle to Cool Reactor

    An explosion early Tuesday morning may have damaged the inner
    steel containment vessel of the No. 2 reactor at Japan's
    Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, leading to the wide
    release of radioactive materials there and forcing the
    evacuation of emergency workers, the plant's operator said.

    The blast appeared to be different -- and more severe -- than
    those that at two other troubled reactor at the same nuclear
    complex because this one, reported to have occurred at 6:14
    a.m., happened in the "pressure suppression room" in the
    cooling area of the reactor, raising the possibility to
    damage to the reactor's containment vessel.

    Stan , by Calloway I'm assuming you mean the nuke in Fulton Mo{ which is less than 100 miles from my home in Missouri}. Why is it the scariest of all?
