2015 was the most dangerous year on record for people around the world trying to protect their land and the environment. That's the conclusion of a new report from the campaign group Global Witness. It says Brazil was particularly badly affected with at least 50 people killed protecting forests and land from illegal loggers and miners.

对于世界各地试图保护自己的土地和环境的人来说,2015是有史以来最危险的一年。这是“全球见证”(Global Witness)这家活动组织的新报告得出的结论。根据这项报告,巴西受影响尤为严重,至少有50人为保护森林及土地不被非法伐木者和矿工破坏而死亡。

After a five-year space journey, NASA's Juno probe has arrived at its destination. No previous spacecraft has passed so close to Jupiter before because of its intense radiation. Now that it's orbiting Jupiter, Juno will start studying how the gas giant was formed. The probe will circle the planet for 20 months before destroying itself by diving into the radioactive atmosphere.

在为期5年的太空飞行后,美国国家航空航天局的“朱诺”探测器已抵达目的地。因木星周围辐射很强,此前没有任何一架航天器能与它如此接近。鉴于“朱诺”现已绕木星轨道运行,它将开始研究这颗气态巨星是如何形成的。探测器将在接下来的20个月里绕木星飞行,然后冲入放射性大气层进行自毁。
