Question by Leopard Gecko 2.0: How would the nuclear power plant explosion in Japan be different from the one in Chernobyl?
Also, If the nuclear power plant in Japan is already experiencing explosions why has it not been blown to pieces yet?

Best answer:

Answer by Alex
Because the explosions, while contaminated with radiation, were not core explosions like what happened in Chernobyl.

That one blew huge chunks of the core fuel all over the place.

Japan is facing not an explosion hazard so much as a meltdown risk.

  1. In Chernobyl extinguished and built a sarcophagus. Cost the lives of many Soviet people.
    Otherwise, the whole of Europe would have been radioactive.
    In Japan – who will put out the reactor, if the staff had already deduced from the station?
