Nature: Fukushima reaches cold shutdown

Eventually, workers at the plant (or, far more probable, robots operated by workers) will open the reactor cores and remove the melted and charred remains of the fuel they once held. That fuel, together with contaminated soil, equipment, clothing and debris, will have to be disposed of at a yet-to-be-determined site somewhere in Japan. It’s an operation that will take many years, and more likely, many decades.
