I'm too ignorant of nuclear

I'm too ignorant of nuclear reactors to really parse all this information. I do have family planning to move to Japan soon, though (lived there myself for 3 years as a teen), so these things obviously concern me.

@wcasino, what differentiates this from something like Chernoblyl, for instance? I recall visiting Hiroshima and noting that everyone in the city some 50 years after the event was not sick or dead; what's the difference in how a partially melted reactor spreads radiation and a nuclear bomb after the fact?
