Dr. Chris Busby Believes Fukushima
Was A Nuclear Explosion

Question: "We see reports that Chernobyl in 1986 was 400 times Hiroshima ­ why are reactor meltdowns so much more dirty that hydrogen or atomic explosions ­ or is that wrong?"
Busby: "No, that's right, they are more dirty - and the reason they are more dirty is that they have vast amounts of uranium.
In the atomic bomb at Hiroshima was a limited amount of uranium ­ maybe a ton ­ we are talking about here is several thousand tons.
The amount of fuel rods there, as I understand it, was about 1,700 tons of spent fuel ­ and each of these reactors contains and each of these reactors probably contains about 100-150 tons of uranium, plutonium and mixed radionuclides ­ so there's just a lot more stuff, that's basically it.  
The Chernobyl accident, which I think now ­ having talked to some Russian nuclear physicists last week in Berlin ­ was a nuclear explosion and not a hydrogen explosion because there was a particular fission ration of Xenon isotopes that define a nuclear explosion.
The Chernobyl explosion vaporized at very most 200 tons, and the argument was that it was only 50 tons. Well here we have a lot more than that ­ we have a huge amount of fuel here that can go up in the air and a lot of it already has..."
Citing data collected by two Russian scientists, Professor Chris Busby said that the explosions at Fukushima were possibly nuclear. The Russian scientists, Sergey A. Pakhomov and Yuri V. Dubasov of the VG Khlopin Radium Institute in Saint Petersburg, examined data related to the explosion at Chernobyl.
Using ratios of the radionuclides Xenon 133 and Xenon 133m which they measured by gamma spectrometer, the Russians demonstrated that the Chernobyl explosion was a fission criticality explosion and not principally a hydrogen explosion as has been claimed.
"I believe that the explosion of the No 3 reactor may have also involved criticality but this must await the release of data on measurements of the Xenon isotope ratios," he writes in a statement on Fukushima and Chernobyl emailed to Infowars.com.
Busby further notes that the surface contamination and of dose rates 60 kilometers out from the Fukushima site on March 17 exceeded that released at Chernobyl.
He explains in his statement that the damaged reactors at Fukushima "are now continuing to fission. It is hoped that there will be no separation of plutonium and possible nuclear explosion. I feel that this is unlikely now." Short of an actual plutonium explosion, the reactors remain open to the air and will continue to "fission and release radionuclides for years unless something drastic is done."
Dr. Busby noted a precedent for the dire scenario now unfolding ­ a nuclear explosion at a plutonium production reprocessing plant in the former Soviet Union in 1957.
The incident at the <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayak>Mayak facility was the second-worst nuclear accident in history after the Chernobyl disaster. The explosion released 50-100 tonnes of high-level radioactive waste and contaminated a huge territory in the eastern Urals. The Soviets kept the explosion secret for 30 years. According to a <http://www1.american.edu/projects/mandala/TED/ural.htm>report on the accident, about 400,000 people in the region were irradiated following the explosion and other incidents at the plant.
Dr. Busby said that short of actual isotope readings, he cannot definitely state that the explosions at Fukushima were nuclear, although he believes they were.
"We don't have evidence of that," he concluded, "we would need to have the Xenon isotope ratios."
