First up, water is the key ingredient in efforts to avoid a nuclear meltdown at a power plant in Japan. The workers at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant are trying to cool down the fuel rods inside the nuclear reactors. The normal cooling systems aren't working. So, engineers are using fire trucks and police water cannons, like you see in this animation here, to try to attack the problem from the ground. Using military helicopters to drop water from the sky. Thursday, authorities said these efforts had been "somewhat effective." That was based on the steam coming out of the reactors and on the lower levels of radioactivity around the plant.
首先,水是日本避免核电站危机的关键因素。福岛第一核电站的工作人员正努力冷却核反应堆内部的燃料棒。常规的冷却系统无法工作。因此,工程师们使用消防车和高压水炮从地面冷却燃料棒。军用飞机从空中向下洒水。周四,有关当局称,这些努力“在某种程度上是有效果的。”这是根据反应堆散发出的蒸汽,以及核电站周围的辐射水平下降得出的结论。


But radiation is there. The workers who are at the site have full-body hazardous material suits on. But that protective clothing isn't very effective at actually stopping the radiation that these workers are being exposed to. One way of measuring nuclear radiation is in units called millisieverts. Radiation levels at these plants have spiked to higher levels in an hour than people naturally come into contact with in a lifetime. These guys are experts, though. They work around nuclear reactors. They know exactly what the dangers are. The fact that they're willing -- in some cases volunteering -- to stay at the power plant, to try to prevent a meltdown, that's why they're being called heroes.
但是辐射是存在的。核电站工人的全套衣服上都检测出有害物质。实际上,当这些工人暴露在辐射下的时候,他们的防护衣并不能有效地阻止辐射。测量核辐射的一种方式是为毫希为单位来测量。这些核电站一小时内的核辐射水平就比人们一生接触到的辐射还高。这些人都是专家,他们在核反应堆附近工作。他们知道这有多危险。事实上,他们愿意——某些情况下是自愿待在核电站的,为了阻止灾难的发生,这也是他们被称作英雄的原因。


The massive earthquake that started all of this hit about a week ago, and Japan is still feeling aftershocks. Watch what happened while CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta was talking with Kiran Chetry from CNN's American Morning.
地震大约一周前袭击了日本,现在日本还能感觉到余震。下面来看看CNN驻日医生Sanjay Gupta与CNN美国晨报记者Kiran Chetry通话时发生了什么。


We're feeling an aftershock right now, Kiran. I'll just tell you the, I don't know if you saw that at all, but things moving around a bit on us even as I'm talking to you. These aftershocks have come quite frequently. It's still continuing here. OK. I think we're all good.
Kiran,我们刚刚感觉到了余震。不知道你看见没有,就在我们通话的时候,周围的东西都在动。这里频繁地出现余震。现在还是震,不过,我们都没事。
