Diorama of damaged Japanese nuclear station shows how cool Japanese TV really is
Last night, Japanese broadcaster NHK unveiled a diorama of the damaged Japanese nuclear plant. They are using the miniature model as part of their news presentation. I have screenshots here.
This is an actual satellite image of the nuclear plant. You can clearly see the damaged buildings. Now let's take a look at NHK's diorama.
Pretty accurate and it comes complete with skeletonized buildings, grass landscape, trees, roads and vehicles!
Here's a wider shot of the entire site. And closeups of the individual buildings that house the reactors below.
For updates on the Japanese earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster, you can follow me on Twitter.
Update: This was shown just seconds ago on NHK. They have updated their diorama of the nuclear station with a helicopter dumping water at reactor number 3 and a couple of fire engines waiting for their turn to spray water!
Latest Update: NHK has updated their diorama of the damaged Japanese nuclear station with a pile of debris blocking a road! You can also watch a video here.
