The Trump era begins

People across the U.S. and the rest of the world have entered a new and uncertain era. They gathered in Washington and tuned in from afar to witness the inauguration of America’s 45th president, Donald Trump. The new leader used his inauguration address to hammer home the themes* that characterized his campaign.

アメリカ中で、突入した、TVを見る、遠くから、見守る、就任式、就任演説、繰り返し力説する、主題

*hammer home the point、hammer home the messageなど =定型文

-We are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, of from one party to another- but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people. 単に、政権、政党

President Trump pledged to bring back American jobs and rebuild infrastructure.

誓う、

-We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and Hire American. We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world- but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.

親善、アメリカ製品を買え・アメリカ人を雇え、了解のもとで、権利、自分の国を優先させる

 


 

Space debris test suspended

NHK has learned that an experiment to solve the ever-worsening problem of space debris is facing difficulties. But officials at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, or JAXA, say they will keep trying until their spacecraft ends its run in a few days. The cargo ship, Kounotori 6, failed to release wires as planned after detaching from the International Space Station on Saturday. The spacecraft was launched in December to deliver supplies to the station, before conducting its experiment.

The plan involved releasing 700-meter-long wires. Electric currents in the wires would interact with the Earth’s magnetic field and slow down nearby debris. Debris no longer moving fast enough to orbit would follow the craft as it re-entered the atmosphere and would burn up. JAXA plans to continue working on the idea with the aim of putting it into use by the mid-2020s.
