Submission + - What the robots saw inside Fukushima (cio.com.au)

swandives writes: "The first images provided by robots from inside the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant are in, following the massive March 11 earthquake and subsequent tsunami.

A pair of iRobot Packbots entered three of the reactor units on Sunday and Monday. Their job was to survey the conditions inside and help Tokyo Electric Power and evaluate whether it is safe to send humans in to continue the cleanup. It's expected to take up to nine months to bring the plant to a cold shutdown — if it can be done."
