Thoes big white streaks going by are gamma rays (no joke).

that couldn`t be covered on warranty. this would make a pretty cool live camera, tell them it`s a haunted room. and then just watch the experts converse.

@Fwoggie:
You`ll pay double or triple to make sure you have fission power?

I wasn`t fussed either way before fudgeushima - at 33 I`m old enough to both remember and at the time understand the severity of Chernobyl - even you still can`t eat some British lamb cos of that thing.

But seeing Japanese engineering - amongst the worlds best - fail cos of a simple mistake by not sticking backup generators on a high enough hill - fission power will never be safe and I`ll happily pay double or triple to avoid not having it.

Those aren`t gamma rays....adiabatic expansion or something? Anyway, not gamma rays.

Gamma rays mess with the CCDs in cameras, that is why cameras on satellites have to be shielded, otherwise the radiation from the sun and space damage them quickly.

First off, no those are not gamma rays. It would be the same as saying "In this particular video you can see each photon (light particles/waves) go by."

As far as a cloud chamber goes, all you are seeing is the condensation of water on the ionized trail left by a gamma particle. Or to phrase it differently you wouldn`t call a contrail a jet, but it certainly gives away a jet`s path across the sky.

I believed that the white streaks were gamma rays, just like this cloud chamber: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Efgy1bV2aQo
Then I read the youtube description, they`re just water drops. But the noise in the video are radioactive particles hitting the camera sensor.

From YouTube:

"TEPCO conducted the endoscopy of the Containment Vessel of Reactor 2 to see the inside. TEPCO`s spokesman Matsumoto said in the press conference that the white specs in the video is from gamma rays. White streaks across the screen are water droplets"

poo like this is why the public will never be properly informed.

What the heck does the IAB staff do? They sure don`t even bother glancing at the descriptions.

fake. This looks nothing like the inside of a reactor vessel.

@spultra13 take your tv remote and look at the front when you press a button. Do you see the light? No...it can`t be seen by our eyes. Not point it at a camera and record it...you will see a little flashing light. The camera can see the light that our eyes can`t. It`s ok not to know something...but stupid is when you refuse to learn.

It`s not the white streaks that are the gamma-rays, it`s the little spots that look like colored static..

If you look at the first 5 seconds, where the image is nearly 100% free of "fuzziness", the 1 minute mark`s fuzziness is the result of the gamma radiation.

"isnt it extremely extremely hot and thats why they run pipes of heavy water through it."

That is the fudgeushima power plant, it`s been shut down, and has had plenty of time to cool down.

@Spultra13: Though it is impossible to see gamma radiation with our eyeballs, this is not n eyeball, it`s a digital camera, the gamma radiation caused the white freckles all throughout the video. The gamma wasn`t seen, but the effect it had on the digital equipment is visible.

Next time, read the goddamned youtube description.

Nope, not gamma rays. Read the goddamn youtube description.

Don`t say stuff when you have no idea what you`re talking about. Gamma rays are super high-energy EM waves, smaller wavelength than x-rays and would in no way be visible. Plus you can`t "see" a beam of EM radiation unless it`s shooting into your detector (eye).

wait how the hell were they able to film that? isnt it extremely extremely hot and thats why they run pipes of heavy water through it.

it`s like one of those videos where something jumps up at the end to scare you, except instead of some possessed chick it`s radiation poisoning. we are all very ill now.
