Finally, mention of robots to Fukushima

Japan Races to Restart Reactors’ Cooling System

At the request of the Japanese military, a Massachusetts company, iRobot, said it put four robots on a plane for Japan on Friday. Colin Angle, the chief executive, said it had sent two small robots that could measure radiation levels close to the reactors and two larger ones that could pull hoses to spray water on the fuel rods.

He said Japanese soldiers could operate the robots from a protected vehicle.

I hope they get there in time.
