Tokyo Electric Power Company has stated that they have observed 13 neutron beams. The beams had a low radioactive rating though, meaning they weren't particularly dangerous.
Typically you will see a neutron beam when fission is occurring, but TYPICALLY fission only occurs inside the protective core. So this could potentially mean fission is occurring outside of the core, meaning that the core could be breached.
Also, this was happening at Reactor 2 I believe. Now I've heard Reactor 1 as well. So its one of those ones.This could mean uranium and plutonium are going through nuclear fission OUTSIDE of the containment core.
I sure hope that's not the reason, because if it is, Bill Nye is right, cement these reactors in NOW.
Don't get to worried though, so far its all speculation.
