Reactors in Japan...

So, I think if the Fukushima reactors overheated, accreted fuel rods, and is melting through containment, I'd think something like a multiple small Dysprosium Titanate crucibles on long poles could be used to scoop core material out of the blob and separated for cooling and reprocessing. This material has a high melting point and is a neutron absorber. Once either enough dysnium had been melted into the core, or enough core scooped out, the solid, glowing mass could be extracted and portioned.
