High resolution photos of Fukushima Daiichi

This last week, TEPCO released some high-res photos of various parts of the Fukushima Daiichi site; we'll show a few of these below. These blow up VERY large when clicked - and they are in some ways the best views yet of the reactor buildings post-accident.

Below, a view of No. 1 reactor building, looking roughly south-southwest. Note the structure of the reactor building visible inside the new framework for supporting the fabric panel enclosure. Note also the other reactor buildings visible beyond No. 1.

Below is another view of No. 1 reactor building looking more directly south. The turbine building is in view at left of the picture, as is the giant crane lifting one of the side panels of the new enclosure.

Below is a view of No. 3 reactor building, looking East (toward the ocean) and taken from the hillside along the reactor plants.

Below is a view of No. 4 reactor building. All these views were published by TEPCO for press use on September 17th.

Finally we see a large piece of construction equipment which will be used for rubble removal around and possibly on the reactor buildings.
