Workers sent a robot into unit 2 on the ground floor again. This time it went into the TIPS room. The radiation levels appear to be down compared to the previous inspection. The photos released of the TIPS room appear to be in good condition with the exception of one horizontal crack found in a corner where a wall meets the containment bulb. The crack has obvious rusty discoloration we have seen in other cracks found inside unit 2. Like these from the attempt to check the torus room.
The crack in the new images is not clear as to the origin or severity but it appears to have the same tell tale rust marks the other cracks do hinting at some sort of leakage. The crack runs the length of the left wall in the TIPS room and a long distance across the face of the containment bulb. The paint is also bubbled up along the crack in the left wall portion.
Though that area of the TIPS room has relatively low radiation.
Enhanced images can be reused, please leave watermark intact. I link back here would be nice too.
