On Wednesday, 5 TEPCO workers and 14 subcontract workers attempted to carry out an investigation of the Reactor 1 operating floor in order to assess the current conditions an gain any insights into removing spent fuel from the spent fuel pool.

The plan involved utilizing a camera attached to a balloon which would be placed inside of the reactor building and attempt to provide imagery of the upper floors, but was unable to perform its mission as it was blocked by obstructions.
