The Mystery of Reactor Building #3

NHK is reporting "Progress in cooling Fukushima Daiichi spent fuel"
Excerpted: http://www3.nhk.or.jp/daily/english/30_03.html

"The operator of Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant appears to be making progress in its work to stabilize the facility's spent fuel rods. Tokyo Electric Power Company says a new cooling system for the No.3 reactor's spent fuel storage pool should be functional in a week.

"The March 11th accident crippled the cooling mechanisms that control reactors No.1 through No.4 and their storage pools. TEPCO has been working to install systems that will cool and circulate water inside the pools....

"Work to install a cooling system was completed at the No.3 reactor on Wednesday. A test-run is scheduled for Thursday...."


MAJIA HERE: I'm confused by this news. A week or so ago I posted a link to a video of high resolution pictures of reactor #3. The person narrating the video points out that much of building 3 is completely destroyed and there is certainly no evidence of a spent fuel pool or even a reactor in building #3.
