 Worst-hit reactor at Fukushima may be easiest to clean up

In this Thursday, Jan. 25, 2018, photo, an installation of a dome-shaped rooftop cover housing key equipment is near completion at Unit 3 reactor of the Fukushima Dai-ich nuclear power plant ahead of a fuel removal from its storage pool in Okuma, Fukushima Prefecture, northeast Japan, during an exclusive visit by The Associated Press. The final pieces of a jelly roll-shaped cover are being put in place atop Fukushimas most damaged nuclear reactor. Huge cranes have been installed to begin removing 566 sets of still-radioactive fuel rods from a storage pool later this year. Its taken seven years just to get this far, the first concrete step toward dismantling the Tokyo Electric Power Co. nuclear plant, damaged in an earthquake and tsunami. (AP Photo/Mari Yamaguchi)
