IEEE Spectrum’s Automation Blog has run a series of exceptional articles on the Fukushima Dai-Ichi crisis since the earthquake and tsunami occurred on 11-March. Recently they uncovered a blog written by a robot operator at the plant that speaks candidly about the operations there and the problems occurring as they try to shut the plant down.
