Meltdown: Overlooked Mass-leakage

In March 2011, the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant experienced one of the worst nuclear accidents in history. Nearly 4 years later, new information continues to surface about the accident. Recently acquired data reveals that the situation was deteriorating rather than being contained. For this program, we recreated what was happening on site, based on the accounts of those involved, and investigate what caused the massive leakage of radioactive materials.
