DigitalGlobe has released a new satellite image of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear site in Japan taken at 9:35AM local time on March 16, 2011.  Damage to the Unit 1 reactor building from a previous explosion can still be seen.  Damage to the Unit 3 reactor building from an explosion can be seen as well.  Steam can still be seen emitted from the top of the damaged building.  The angle of this new image, however, shows what appears to be more extensive damage to the Unit 3 reactor building than can be seen in previous satellite imagery.  The image also shows damage to the reactor building for Unit 4 from an explosion.  Steam can be seen venting out of a hole in the side of the reactor building for Unit 2.  Workers likely removed a panel in the side of the building to vent the steam.

    Supposedly, the cooling pool #4 is filled with recently removed nuke fuel and is 14 meters deep - and no longer holds water. Big problem
