Helios IX: Japan's Radiation-Proof Robots to the Rescue

May 16, 2011 Full story: Technabob.com 6

It's been confirmed that there was a nuclear meltdown in Fukushima, Japan . That's why I think that the Helios IX , which was developed by the Tokyo Institute of Technology , will certainly be able to help out its human friends, since it won't get sick or die from radiation poisoning.

Electronic devices suffer long-term radiation effects, mostly to electrons and protons within electronic micro-circuits.

Plutonium exposure usually comes from inhalation rather than ingestion, so it's mostly associated with lung cancer initially. What's more, plutonium's half life is 25,000 years APPROX, which means anything released in Fukushima today could be around at dangerous levels for up to half a millon years! nOTE IT NEEDS PREVENTING FROM ESCAPE AT SOURCE; NOW NOT LATER!

DEAR RESPECTED AMERICAN MARINES; Please take at least 100 tonnes of Graphite and Bi-carbonate soda to place inside each reactor; this will then absorb the dangerous fissioning neutrons and also keep oxygen away, so there will be less likely to be another explosion! note; remove water! dig several deep sluece trenches 20 metres deep approx' to drain water away and filter through carbon and sand filters so plutonium is RE-captured and then stored correctly! Note well you need to take table salt with added iodine on all your meals whilst in Japan wear a double suit of reflective radiation suits whilst near the reactors and no persons should be close to reactors more than 4 minutes or your be dead within 2 years! God bless you and protect all of you!
