NHK is reporting that Xenon and other substances are being detected at unit 2 indicating some amount of fission is going on. TEPCO claims the levels are low and they think that the fuel has not begun to re-melt. TEPCO began injecting boron to try to combat this.
Unit 2 has lost pressure the last 4 days, temps have been steady with a slight rise. As seen in our live Fukushima Daiichi reactor data graphs.
UPDATE: There was a 5.6 degree temp increase in the RPV support skirt at unit 2 as of 10am JST
UPDATE: TEPCO is now telling the media there have been no pressure or temperature changes at unit 2 – Maybe they need to look at their own data??
