What is in store for them after they reach the radiation limit?

Noted. I know that they sometimes sacrifice themselves for the nation and it's from a long time ago. I remember a tradition which is called harakiri when some of their people kill themselves for the good of their nation. I understand their reason. I hope the best for them. And I do hope the government would do something for them and their families.

Thank you, Cal.

If Chernobyl is the measure, these people will all die of cancers.

This is a very sad situation. The men who risk their lives to bring the nuclear reactors under control are certainly heroes --no matter what their personal motivation for doing so might be. It has to be done. The danger is not limited to Japan.
