A decade later, the footage of the dramatic hydrogen explosions in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, broadcast live on television—and the subsequent disruptions to livelihoods, ecosystems, and economic activities—still reverberate.
After the nuclear disaster at Fukushima, evacuees were put in what was supposed to be temporary housing built in parking lots and fields on the outskirts of inland towns. These metal structures were measured by the size of Japan’s traditional tatami sleeping mats, typically about 36 by 71 inches.

Born on 25 May 1921 in Bade Kissingen, Germany On 12 December, the physicist Jack Steinberger died at the age of 99. As a young man, he had to and was able to leave Germany during the fascist era. Persecuted again during the Mach Carthy era, he left the USA and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1988.
Jack Steinberg’s life was marked by a deep and never-ending search for scientific knowledge and truth. His commitment to passing on his knowledge to the next generations was tireless.
For him, science was inseparably linked with social and individual responsibility. Alarmed by the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, he spent a lifetime in the peace movement. His goal, which he advocated tirelessly and fearlessly, was a world without nuclear weapons and war. He abhorred war from the bottom of his heart. This commitment brought him to the International Network of Engeneers and Scientists, of which he became a founding member and long-time supporter and sponsor. He was active for and with INES until his old age.
We will miss him and his activities in the future we will have to fight alone against nuclear weapons and war for a peaceful and just world.
