Without repair at the reactors, endless radionuclide (Cesium 137, Strontium 90, etc.) contamination from Fukushima will poison the Pacific Ocean.  However, the Fukushima reactors cannot be repaired by robots or humans due to extremely intense radiation.  Robots that have entered the high radiation areas of the reactors have been fried by the radiation.  The reasons why the reactors cannot be repaired by humans or conventional robots will be explained, and the consequences if there is no cleanup will also be explained.  Conventional robot technology fails, but there is another possible approach.
