Abstract- Japan was seriously affected in the Second World War (WWII). After the Second World War, the Japanese met a heavy loss of human lives and grief enveloped them. Japan was able to recover from the distress of WWII and managed to become the second-largest economic entity of the world by the 1960s. Japan’s immeasurable growth came by their preference to hard work, sincerity and good discipline. The 26th April 1986 Chernobyl reactor number four accident was considered as man-made disaster because of flaw reactor design with serious mistakes made by the plant operators. The Chernobyl accident is considered to be the worst nuclear disaster in history and it shocked the world, permanently altered a region, and leaves many questions unanswered. A large mass of black corium formed which resembling the foot of an elephant. Japan’s earthquake and tsunami of 2011, also called the Great Sendai Earthquake, a severe natural disaster occurred in northeastern Japan on March 11, 2011. This most powerful earthquake recorded in Japanese history had a magnitude of 8.9. The massive March 11 earthquake and tsunami knocked out Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant’s, reactor cooling systems, where workers were battling to prevent radiation leaks and a total meltdown. The tremors were the result of a violent uplift of the seafloor 80 miles off the coast of Sendai, where the Pacific tectonic plate slides beneath the plate Japan sits on. The earthquake occurred at a relatively shallow depth of 15 miles, meaning much of its energy was released at the seafloor. This paper describes the meltdown position of the uranium reactors in Chernobyl and Fukushima Daichii power plant and the need for the development of the Robot to find out the meltdown position of the reactor.
