Japan Stabilizes Worst Nuke Plant

Things may be looking up at Fukushima Daiichi: Japan reported Sunday that two of the six reactors at the crippled nuclear-power plant have been stabilized and are considered safe, while a power cable was successfully connected to another reactor in trouble. U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu said the Obama administration believes the worst of the crisis is over and stressed that the accident carries “no danger” in the United States. As for reactor 2, the most damaged, Chu said it’s likely experienced only a “limited breach,” but warned that “we don’t really know” the extent of it yet.
