(Tokyo) — Japan’s crippled nuclear power plant is emitting a neutron beam as efforts continue to bring it under control.
The “Kyodo News” reports the plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, has spotted a neutron beam 13 separate times at the Fukushima plant.
The beam is a radioactive ray and could be evidence of a more serious leak from nuclear fission. All 13 sightings occurred after the massive quake and tsunami hit the region on March 11th. TEPCO says the beam was only emitted a tiny amount of radiation that isn’t considered dangerous.
