First Photos of the Fukushima 50: "Please Continue to Live Well, I Can't Be Home for A While"

Harrowing photos emerge from inside Japan's nuclear terror.

The first photos of the Fukushima 50, the team of men currently attempting to prevent a nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan, have emerged, and they're simultaneously inspiring and heartbreaking.


On the one hand, the 50, who have since been joined by 150 others, are all that's right in the world, true symbols of selflessness and sacrifice for the greater good. On the other, they're also sad reminders of the horror Japan's recent tsunami wrought—five of the men are already presumed dead, and others have said they're certain the radiation will kill them eventually.

The men's brief messages home have been chilling in their beautiful simplicity and frankness: "Please continue to live well," one of the 50 wrote in an e-mail to his wife. "I cannot come home for a while."
