Japanese Nuclear Situation Simply Explained

Category: VideosChrisM @ 1:31 am

In case you haven’t yet seen this video, I wanted to post it up here. It was originally created to explain what was going on with the nuclear reactors at Fukushima to concerned Japanese children. However, add in the English subtitles, and you get a pretty clear explanation (though if you squirm when anything toilet related is mentioned, you may want to ready yourself). I love the fact that someone (/some people probably) thought to actually spend the time and create this to help explain what can be very scary to adults, let alone children. Nuclear Boy translates complex science into concepts that even toddlers could grasp, and whilst not whitewashing everything by claiming that all is well, it tries to tell children why some adults are stressed.
