1. 백남기 농민 사망

기사요약: 지난 11월 14일 쌀 수입 자유화 반대 시위 도중 물대포 직사 살수를 머리에 맞은 69세 백남기 씨가 25일 사망했다. 공권력의 과잉 진압으로 인한 안타까운 죽음이라는 여론 가운데 경찰이 정확한 원인 규명을 위해 부검을 요구하며 논란이 빚어지고 있다.



Police response to farmer’s death sparks controversy

[1] Controversy escalated Monday over the call by the police for an autopsy on the body of farmer Baek Nam-gi, who died after being struck by a police water cannon during an anti-government protest last year.

*escalate: 치솟다, 번지다
*rachet up: 증가시키다
*autopsy: 부검

[2] Baek, a 69-year-old farmer, died at 1:58 p.m. on Sunday at Seoul National University Hospital, 317 days after he fell into a coma due to a water cannon blast that directly hit his head during the Nov. 14 rally. Baek was at the rally to protest the government’s decision to liberalize imports of rice.

*fall into a coma: 혼수상태에 빠지다
*liberalize: 해방시키다, 자유화하다
*tariff: 관세

[3] As Baek’s family and the public mourned the death of the senior activist, the police requested a warrant to conduct an autopsy on Baek’s body Sunday night, saying that the cause of his death is “unclear” and “disputed.” But the court rejected the application a few hours later.

*mourn the death of someone: ~의 죽음을 애도하다
*bereaved: 사별을 당한
*unclear and disputed: 확실치 않으며 논쟁의 여지가 있다

2. 목성 위성 유로파에서 물 기둥 관측

기사요약: 지난 26일(현지시간) 미국 항공우주국(나사)은 목성의 위성 유로파에서 물기둥으로 추정되는 물체를 확인했다고 밝혔다. 얼음으로 뒤덮인 유로파에 생명체가 존재할 가능성이 대두되며 과학계의 관심이 높아지고 있다. 지난 7월에는 나사 무인탐사선 주노가 성공적으로 목성 궤도에 진입해 20개월 간의 탐사 임무에 착수한 바 있다.



New evidence of water plumes on Jupiter‘s moon Europa

[1] More evidence of possible water plumes erupting from the surface of Jupiter‘s icy moon Europa has been spotted using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, the US space agency said Monday.

*plume: (연기・수증기 등이 피어오르는) 기둥
*erupt: 분출하다

[2] Europa, one of more than 50 moons circling the gas giant, is considered by NASA as a “top candidate” for life elsewhere in the solar system because it is believed to possess a massive, salty, subsurface ocean that is twice the size of Earth‘s.

*circle: 맴돌다
*orbit: 궤도, 공전하다
*life elsewhere: 다른 곳의 생명체

[3] The latest finding has given scientists fresh hope that a robotic spacecraft could one day fly past these potential plumes and learn about their contents without having to drill miles deep into the moon’s icy shell.

*miles deep: 수킬로미터 (1 mile=1.6km)
*skin-deep (shallow): 얄팍한
