KYOTO (Jiji Press) — Kyoto University on Friday made public part of Nobel prize-winning physicist Hideki Yukawa’s diary in which he mentioned a fallout incident caused by a U.S. hydrogen bomb test at Bikini Atoll in 1954.
“Crew members with burns were examined and were presumed to have hydrogen-bomb sickness,” he continued.
The United States carried out the hydrogen-bomb test at the Pacific atoll on March 1, 1954. On March 16 the same year, it emerged that the Fukuryu Maru crew had been irradiated.
取り上げるのはirradiate /ɪˈreɪdieɪt/ です。
また、LDOCEでは “if someone or something is irradiated, X-rays or radioactive beams are passed through them” “if food is irradiated, it is treated with radiation in order to kill bacteria and make it last longer” “to make something look bright as if a light is shining onto it” と記載されていました。
