Incredible NHK Video on Heroic Scientists' Efforts (with NHK) to Create a Radiation Map

I haven't finished watching it yet. I had to stop for awhile after breaking down in tears when the scientists interviewed a couple staying in an area with over 20 microsieverts an hour in order to feed their beloved pets, a cat and a dog...

(the detectors only read up to 20 microsieverts an hour)

20 microsieverts an hour is 175 milliesieverts a year. This is very high!

I really don't know what to say...
