Radiation levels in one Fukushima reactor high enough to kill a human in two minutes

Radiation levels in one Fukushima reactor high enough to kill a human in two minutes --Robot sent to investigate radiation measurement got stuck because of highly radioactive debris | 18 Feb 2017 | The radiation levels in Fukushima's unit two reactor are so high they could kill a human in two minutes, according to data collected by a robot. Tokyo Electric Power, the company which operates the nuclear plant in Fukushima, carried out a robotic survey of the area around the core that melted six years ago, following the nuclear accident. But the scorpion robot Sasori got stuck inside the reactor after its crawling functions failed while climbing over highly radioactive debris and had to be abandoned inside the reactor. It recorded radiation measures in the area of 210 sieverts per hour, which are lethal enough to kill a human within two minutes.
