Nature had quite a few articles, including the video above, as well as a portal to all things related to Fukushima, earthquakes, and the nuclear crisis. A year after the event, they posted a Fukushima reports redux, rounding up information about the the disaster. A year after that, another in depth article, entitled “Fukushima: Fallout of fear“, was released, assessing the psychological impacts of the radiation on the people of Japan.
Both Scientific American and the BBC reported on the event a year after it happened, with a detailed timeline of the year, and images of then and now, respectively.
