Hovering Drones Capture Video of Fukushima Destruction

Viewing the massive explosions inside the Fukushima plant was shocking enough—but up-close video, courtesy of robotic drones, give a more intimate view of the wreckage—and the perilous environment rescue workers have had to navigate.

This newest footage was released just yesterday, making vivid the extent of the plant's ruined condition.

The video is both incredible and awful—and we're glad a human didn't have to take it. [via The Atlantic]
