This photo was reportedly taken inside the crippled Unit 4 reactor building at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear plant. An orange safety cone has been flipped upside down to direct leaking materials into a hose which has been attached with tape. Workers have reported that there is nothing left that they can do about the damage anymore.
