In the months since the aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident experts all over the world have had a lot to chew on. Now the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has opened up an official investigation.
IAEA will rely on experts throughout the world to answer some of the most frustrating questions, such as a lack of institutional leadership, a decision-making process that was ineffective at best.
Fukushima is considered the worst nuclear accident since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, and some experts now believe Daiichi is actually worse than Chernobyl.
The 18-member investigative team includes members of the IAEA and 12 experts from multiple countries. The team will hold hearings and bring in representatives from Tokyo Electric Power, which operates the plant as well as Japanese nuclear regulators.
Fukushima was nearly leveled during a tsunami and earthquake in March.
